Connie Horvizcka from Dirty Footprints Studio is the one in charge of the playground. And her Abstract Adventure workshop is one of the first classes I watched on Saturday. Here is what I came up with. It was fun and invigorating. Just letting loose and be fearless.
I heard about this event from Tam on Willowing. Her Collage, Paint and Soul workshop is actually why I joined 21 Secrets in the first place. I absolutely loved it. I had to do TWO collages willowing style.
Next I watched Jane Davenport and her Drawing Happy videos. Very inspiring and again loved every minute of it. I was very bold with this one since I didn't sketch with a pencil first but went on ahead and draw everything with a Pitt Pen. Yes, that's how awesome Jane is. She makes you draw with a pen!
Debra Cooper of A Little Imagination & A Pile Of Junk showed some of the ways to make your own patterned paper. Her papers were just amazing so I had to try it. Of course I have none of the pretty stuff she has but I made do with what I had left from my card making days.
These were all done on Saturday afternoon up until 1 a.m. on Sunday. Than I had to go to sleep. Unfortunately. But yesterday I allowed myself to play with Three Little Words taught by Aimee Myers Dolich of Artsyville. Now, if you follow my blog and my work you probably noticed I have a problem with journaling words. It just doesn't come naturally to me so this workshop was a real blessing. I have no journal page to show you but I promise I'm practicing like crazy. It's so much fun. I even impress myself with the stuff I'm coming up with.
The reason why I'm linking to the artists instead of the registration page is because every artist gets a commission fee if you register through their link to 21 Secrets. It's up to you to choose which artist you want to support in this way. Of course there are 21 artists all together but I haven't done all the workshops yet to introduce them all to you.
