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.

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!

Gelli Plate fun

Have I told you how much I love playing with the Gelli Plate!! It's even more fun when I have students here learning to play along with me. Today's group of ladies did a great job of the Gelli Plate Layers workshop. In this workshop we go beyond the basics. We explore how to build up layers and be more intentional with our paint placement.

Altered Books


   I am still continuing each month with my challenges. This month it's all about altering books. I started to alter a few of them years ago, so it's been a lot of fun getting back at them. A lot of my Creative Studio students have joined me as well. 
   The one above is an older one that I just added a few things to, to finish it up.
   Getting the book ready to work in it is the hardest part. It takes time and patience to glue pages together so they are strong enough to work with or to make niches, windows or doors. 
The niche is cut out and them the pages glued together.

A transparency is used for this window.
   Here is the niche page finished. The other one is still a work in progress.

A favourite of mine.
   This one got very dimensional but that is the charm of an altered book. You can do anything you want in it.
   If you'd like to see more or join in the fun head over to Dragonfly Dreamers Monthly Challenge fb group.

  Well I have to get back at it. So many pages to alter in these books.

Happy Creating!

Tea Bag ATC's

Do you do art with tea bags? I can't say that I had until this month when that was our ATC theme. Who knew you could do such interesting things with them. Just see the variety of cards that were turned out.
