Snowy Kimberley...

...and a mixed media workshop was a great combination, to say nothing of fifteen women who were ready to play.

You can tell that was the case when you look at these three photos:

Before their arrival, the room sits quietly waiting
In the throes of it all
A done deed, with one or two of their pieces 
In between, it was mayhem, laughter, testing the 'what if's' and playing with techniques and supplies. What could be more fun on a blizzarding weekend?

The floor was covered on both sides of the Centre 64 studio,

Our drying 'table'
as we tested backgrounds with peeling papers,

painted dryer sheets and much more.

They created plastic tape stencils (and no I won't tell you how many rolls of plastic tape were used), some of them from magazines and some hand drawn.

Many thanks to organizers extraordinaire at the Centre 64 Irma (who took the class as well) and Christina.  You did a fabulous job of creating this sold-out workshop;  it was filled with laughter and fun.  So much so, in fact, that the group determined to exchange emails.  They need a support group for their mixed media addiction...my creativity virus has done its work!

Personally, I'm very much looking forward to the next one.  Happy creating, all!

    1. It was, Val! And while I can't give everything away, I'll tell you that plastic tape is also known as packing tape in some circles. :D

    1. It certainly was, on both counts, Alice. It's so exciting to see so many newbies (about 75% of them) get that kind of addiction!

    1. So true, Kimberley - it was exciting to see students take the techniques and turn them into their own vision. Centre 64 is a wonderful venue, as well, and the staff there not only know their stuff, but turn it into glory!
