More on Misty

Today I went to my friend Bevlea's home where we played around with Misty Mawns techniques.
Bevlea & I attended her class last Friday & then Bevlea went to another class with Misty on Sunday. I was very downcast after my class, 'cos I'm just not a painter, but, today playing with Bevlea and using the techniques she learnt on the Sunday we made a collage.

I am so EXCITED!! I love what we both made. I have named my collage "Playing with Bevlea', very appropriate!

After the many, many classes & workshops I have done over the years, this is only the second time I have ever produced a finished article, and I am RAPT!! (the only other one was little houses with Marg Buhagiar from The Creative Journey)

At Buck House!

Just wanted to set the record straight.
The pic of me outside Buck house is a tad misleading.
No, Bevlea, I do not have blue ear muffs on!
Also, just realized that I look huge!
Well, not that I'm small, BUT, underneath my coat are 3 jumpers & my shoulder bag(safest place to keep it!)

Back to reality

It's taken me quite a while to get back 'into' making art. Have done a few swaps & fiddled around with a few new ideas, more about that later!

I recently attended a workshop with the beautiful & talented Misty Mawn.

Misty is a great girl & she produces brilliant art, but, I decided that I am not & never will be a painter. Ho Hum!!!

I am OK with collages, stamping & some painting, but, not canvas's.

The pics I have posted are of an arch I did for an International swap and a set of altered keys. Just love altered keys!!
