Creative Fun with Donna Downey

Hi all,

I'm feeling very lucky at the moment as I have had one fantastic day creating and am getting ready for my second. Donna Downey is here in Rockingham, teaching at Made With Memories, and I am taking all four classes with her. I am having a blast! It's fun being the student for a change.

Yesterday the first class was about painting with stencils and we made a largish canvas. Here is where we stopped after creating the background layer:

Then we came in and stencilled over the top and added paint, highlighting some of the background. I got a bit carried away and forgot to highlight much of the background as I was having so much fun playing and mixing paint. Here is my finished piece:

The second class was working with different Faber Castell mediums - gelatos and big brush pens. Must admit I am not so in love with that finished piece, main reason was I made myself use a different colour palette then my normal and I am not happy with the results. Live and learn. Great class just not happy with my finished piece.

Well that's it for now, off to get ready for today's adventure!
Take care,
