Colour in the playroom... never boring.

I've been having fun working from the Creative JumpStart 2015 videos.  This  piece was a technique on plaster wrap that was demoed by Jamie Doherty, and I got so involved in it that I forgot to take photos as I went along.  I'm enjoying the texture added through the use of the plaster in the background, and I love it that I got a second chance to play with my face stencil from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's video.

The other technique I started was by Marsha Valk, and I did remember to take a photo or two, although I'm a loooooong way from finished.  I made an effort to step out of my usual colours to start the background.

The colours I added on top are not what I'd normally use together either, but I liked them so much it was hard to go on to the next stage!

I'll be working more on this next week, but in the meantime, I'm also in the midst of packing for this weekend's Gelli it Up! playshop in Kimberley, BC.  I'll be at one of my favourite venues - Centre 64 - and if past playshops there are any indication, it will be a veritable riot. I expect the RCMP will have to be called out to quiet us down.

If you can't join us there this weekend (and I know there's a spot left for you), the same class is running in two weeks at The Arts Station in Fernie, BC.  I'd love to see you there!
