December creating!

December can be such a busy time. Do you find time to do some creativity at this time of year? As busy as it was I surprised myself with how much I was able to get done. Here are a few of the projects I got done this month.
Altered tin
I started a few of these altered tins last year so it was fun to get them out and finish them. The one above is my oldest son when he was one year old.  

This is made with a photo of my two boys and nephews from over 20 years ago.

Gingerbread house
Often in the past we have bought Gingerbread house kits to make. This year we couldn't find any in the store by the time we went looking so we decided to try our hand at making one from scratch. I think it turned out pretty good for our first try. 

Christmas card
This is one of a few card that I finished this month. You can see more over on Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Exploration FB page.

How was your December. I'd love to see some of your creations. Share them in the comments or over on the FB group page.

Happy Creating!

Textured Copper Jewelry workshop

Just spent the day with three fun, creative ladies making textured bracelets. I hadn't done this workshop in a while and they made it so easy and fun. They did a great job. We made earring to match but I forgot to take pictures of them. 



Thanks for a great day ladies. I look forward to seeing you in the studio again sometime.

Keep Creating!

Button and Lace Trees workshop

I've lost count of how many trees I've made and workshops I've taught for it, in the last few years but it's still one of my favourite things to do. It's fun and relaxing and always interesting to see the end results whether it's mine or a students. They are always uniquely individual. Here are this years creations so far.


What do you do with all your buttons?

Another Gelli Plate Printing workshop

I had a great time in today's Intro to Gelli Plate Printing workshop with 3 very creative ladies. Just check out some of the prints they did.


As usual I have the urge to keep printing!

Happy Creating.

A Moment in Time.

I wish I could name all my workshops 'A moment in time'! It's like the whole world stops while I come together to teach a group of students something creative. While they are in the studio nothing else matters. We delve into the world of creativity. Yesterdays canvas workshop was just like that. I had a great group of ladies here in the studio to create these wonderful canvases. I love how each made a truly unique canvas with similar techniques. 



This workshop was all about texture and dimensions. Lot's of layers with texture paste and found objects.

Happy Creating!

ATC Swap with a twist.

Usually for our monthly ATC meetings we have a theme and our cards are made at home, ready to swap during the meeting. But once a year we do a baggie swap ATC. This is where we all bring a small baggie of goodies and make our cards during the meeting. The last few years we did themes for our baggies and swapped baggies before making our ATC.  This year we decided to give it a new twist. We still swapped baggies before starting to make our ATCs but for an extra challenge we only had 10 minutes to work on our ATC and then we had to pass it to the person beside us who continued to work on it for another 10 minutes. We then passed it on to a third person to finish it up for another 10 minutes. This was a challenge but great fun. We had time to do this a second time with a quick swap of our baggies.
So each of these ATCs has been created by 3 people in the group.

Have you tried to do this kind of ATC challenge? Do you have suggestions for some other challenges for our group. If you do please give me a shout. We love a challenge!

Happy Creating
