(a tribute to our teacher)
acrylics on a dryer sheet attached to cardstock
Today I had the pleasure of painting along with Amy as she taught another free live workshop... It was like a live virtual paint party! These workshops are a lot of fun and it is great to be painting and chatting with so many people I've met through blogging!
In addition to painting, today's workshop started with sewing. (Can you believe it Jenny?!? I actually sewed something! Sure it was just a little bit of a border, but it won't be long until I'm giving your fun elephant pattern a try!) I sewed a dryer sheet onto a piece of cardstock, then painted on that. I was originally going to sew a piece of fabric to the cardstock, but someone mentioned dryer sheets and I remembered that Becca uses dryer sheets in her art, so I thought I'd give it a try. (I discovered that dryer sheets take paint pretty well, but the constant perfumey smell made me a bit queasy and gave me a headache... Lesson learned.)
The topic of conversation over at the Paint Party Friday blog this week is about why we buy the art that we buy... I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share some of the art that I have bought, been gifted, and won in giveaways. I have created a board on pinterest with some of the art that I have in my house. (If you'd like to see, click here.)
Are you on pinterest? My friend Robin invited me to join a awhile ago and I fiddled around a bit, but over the past couple of weeks I have become a bit of a pinterest addict! If you 're on pinterest let me know - I'd love to see what you're pinning!
