I'm back...

Well I came home last night from a couple of days at Art Unraveled.
I was going to stay one more night and attend the
shopping extravaganza that was held this morning but
decided to cut it short due to something that happened
earlier this week. So here is a quick report.

This is my workspace in Traci Bautista's class where we
got to play with paints, we were shown lots of demo's by
Traci and then went off to try them out. We were to
make background papers and then had to cut them up
to make a collage, it was so hard to cut up the papers
we had just made, I had to choose the ones I did not
like as much so I could keep all the ones I did like, lol!

This is me with my cruise mate Michelle both having fun
in Traci's class. If you ever get the chance to take a class
with Traci I highly recommend it. She has so much
information to share and the class is so stress free and fun,
I am looking forward to making more background papers.

This is from my class yesterday with Karen Michel. I love
how it turned out but may still add a little more to it.
You would not believe the colour of the paint that was
used as we used India Ink to make a patina on top of it.
A very fun class and I actually have a bigger piece that I
made which needs finishing, although I am tempted to not
embellish the wood blocks - will have to think about it.

It was a very brief experience of Art Unraveled for me
but I did enjoy my daytime classes.
I also met a very nice lady from Austin, TX - hello Susan!!
We were sat next to each other for the Weds night class,
which all I can say was not a good class, but we had a
really nice time chatting and maybe will get to meet
again at another event.

Wow, looks like an awesome time and awesome classes! Would love to take a class with Traci. Your other piece looks wonderful too!

Oh, it's always wonderful to get away for a few days and be creative alongside of other like-minded souls. Looks like you had a great time, but welcome back!

Traci is a great teacher. So glad you got to take that class as I enjoyed it a lot when I took it too. Thanks for sharing.
