Taking Classes and a Tutorial

Hi everyone,

I'm never really good at publicly declaring any major goals at the beginning of a new year. Maybe I'm a little worried that once I say it to the world I'll "have" to make good on them.....ha! So maybe I'll start with some doable, more attainable goals and build up from there.

Well this year I want to make sure I carve out some more time for me to create. I want to make more pages, I want to take more classes, try new techniques, get my hands covered with medium, know what I mean?

To that end I signed up for an online line class called Pop & Colours 2 put on by Shirel Studio.

Here's my first page. The uber talented Georgia Heald put up the first video and I had so much fun trying out her version. When it comes to layering with the photos, I'm a big chicken...bock, bock. Give me mediums to layer, no prob but then comes the time to put the photo down and layer.....and the poultry comes out ;) So for this lesson I just said "aw heck" and kept on adding stuff until I got this. Big smile. I'm very happy.

I used papers from 7 Dots Studio: Messy Head and Love is the Air....

And speaking of learning new things, I have a tutorial up at Scrap Friends on using chalk pastels. Remember this page?

I give a step by step on how to make that background! So head over there and check it out!
