I had the FANTASTIC opportunity to meet Anna Dabrowska aka Finnabair (!!) and take her Mixed Media class!!! And yes, it was all that I'd hoped it would be! Anna is a wonderful teacher, passionate, straight forward, challenging, encouraging and most certainly inspiring....THANK YOU Anna!
|Anna and me!|
Our class was sponsored by Swirlydoos, and held at Prima Marketing. Anna hand picked the yummy Prima goodies for our projects so it was a great group, great venue, and great teacher!
Cool learning points for me:
1. When working on your layers, commit that stuff down with glue! No humming and hawing with each piece...this is art, there are no mistakes!
2. New approach...thinking in black and white and in shapes...add the colors later (a completely different way of thinking for me!)
3. You don't need gesso (gasp!) to get those bold colors over already colorful items...Lumiere acrylic paints baby! I knew I loved those paints for a reason!
Here's my journal...

Also got to meet some cool people along the way...
