Tim Class #1 and more Candy




The first class on Saturday was Creative Blocks... total Fun with canvas, paper, beeswax, Idea-ology, and stuff!!!!  I LOVED working with the canvas and beeswax... I must do it again!!!  All weekend long I kept telling myself... no thinking or don't over-think... I often think too much at home... so when we did the paper part, unless it was something I just didn't like, I just used pieces... lots of fun!!!  When we did inking and then also when we got to the embellishing part I pulled my choice of colors from the piece of paper at the top left - the picture of pigments.... I was skeptical as I worked but when it was finished, I loved it!!!!!  I'm not sure I would have ever "planned" to use the colors the way I did.  Soooooooooo much fun!!!!!!!  






Now onto some candy!!!  I have for this give away what is pictured below.  The 2 bags are Quietfire Design stamps that Suzanne gave me to give away (there will be more coming) - Thank you, Suzanne!!!!  Oh, and I should tell you, Quietfire has a brand new website that is faster and has a whole new shopping cart... check it out if you have time.

Everyone is welcome to leave a comment for a chance to win the candy - one each, please.  I'll randomly choose a winner Sunday, July 3rd.

What a great job here on these. I love how it looks, and you really did a perfect job here. I sooo wish sometimes, that I lived overthere, so we ha a chance to join something like this too, as we don´t have anything here at all like this. It really looks awesome, and I sooo love it.

Laura said...

I bought those square sheets of wax to make candles with....looks like there's another use for it - as with all things in the world of art!!!! I saw a guy paint an entire landscape with wax...it was beautiful as well, lots of dimension to it.

Love this piece - I love all the ephemera you have used and the placement of each piece on the finished article.

tea said...

Vivacious and thought through, I love the way you have pulled it all together, and of course the ephemera. What a great piece!
I am thinking how fun it must have been to just sit down at the table and be handed such a bag of goodies and inspiration. Must have felt like Christmas in June.

WANDA, I loved every class you took and you now have some awesome peices of ART to display. I think my most favorite was the Creative Blocks. Some of the other classes I have been LUCKY to take from the master his self but the Creative Blocks one I missed. I will have to attempt it on my own.
