Yes...I skipped Day 3. Actually there are a few things on the go not yet ready, so I've skipped to posting Day 4 achievements in my art journal. I challenged myself to leave white space on the page today...a very difficult thing for me. I am fairly happy with this page. I used Dylusions spray inks and 8 different stencils to create the base and then dripped teal acrylic paint over the page, tipping it in 2 directions to achieve the run pattern. I also used a flower stamp and sprayed the centre with Dylusions Lemon Zest.

I am taking a week of vacation with no plans other than to be creative...whether it be pages in my art journal, a canvas or two...and even some cooking. Day 1...a double page in my art journal and a single page finished from the other day. Dream...the double page...love the teal, yellow and black colour combination, I used a variety of stamps and stencils and even found some old BoBunny arrow rub-ons to use as well. I had a few tags in my stash so cut these and pasted them to the page.

Heather at Younique Country Retreat has asked if I'd like to teach a class to those that would like to try mixed media. These two were done using Basic Grey Plumeria papers...beautiful papers! My samples for the class are shown below. I'm very excited about this and I'm pleased with how they turned out. My aim for the class is to show you how EASY it is to create some beautiful art work and techniques that can either be used on canvas or on scrapbook pages! Heather says....This class will be offered on 2 different dates to accommodate everyone as we are sure to sell out. First class will be Wednesday September 26th from 7 to 10 pm and the second date will be Sunday September 30th from 2 to 5 pm. You have a choice between a lighter or dark canvas and Julie will guide you through the creation leaving lots of room for your own creative juices to flow on the canvas. The cost for this class will be $25 and will include all supplies. The link to Younique is shown below and at the side of this post. http://youniqueshop.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=12_37&products_id=1801

I spent the long weekend marking the end of summer painting...playing in my art journal and scrapping...could it have been any more perfect! The first one I did was this canvas. Last weekend was our company family picnic. We covered the tables with kraft paper and a lot of the kids were drawing. One 10 year old, Samantha, drew the cartoonish character and I asked if I could have it. I asked her dad what colour her bedroom was and then used the pink and purple theme to do the canvas. I used Dylusions spray inks and an assortment of pink papers. I think it looks a bit like a dance sequence in a cartoon high school. I hope she likes it!
