This past weekend while I was relaxing in Salado with my bloggy friends, I pulled out the paper and glue and said we should all make trading cards to take from the weekend as a memento. Earlier in the day I was listening to Wendy say how inspiring the village was since it is packed with products made by so many creative people. SO I decided that we needed to get our creative juices flowing and you would have thought I said it was time for a root canal. NOT REALLY Actually, one or both of them might have rather had a root canal, but I persevered and continued pulling out the paper and goodies and sample ATC cards that I had received over the past two years.
In the end they both made some really cute cards and replicated them to trade with me and each other. They even made extras for the two ladies who were unable to be with us that night. (Oops Roban, Julie, I let a little secret slip.)
When we were done, I began talking to them about an online workshop I participated in earlier this year that taught me that I had what it takes to be creative. I told Wendy that she should really participate in this class because it was detailed and gave good examples but it also gave the opportunity to use the techniques in your own way.
Then, today, I saw on Michelle's blog that she was encouraging others to take this art journal class and I thought, "Well, why aren't I doing the same thing??"
So here it is. Go to my friend Marit's site and sign up for her class, "Let It Loose." There are still a few spaces available. I know you will enjoy it.
Here are few of my pages:
Hope to see what you make!!!
