My First Mixed Media Class

Hello everyone!  I've been gone for a while but hopefully will soon be blogging again with some regularity.  I can't believe it's been over a week since my last post.

There's a cute little store here called The Perch Paperie and I was lucky enough to teach my first mixed media class there yesterday.  I had a blast!!!  I created a canvas inspired by something the owner of the shop had seen.  It was a big canvas (11 x 14) - well, that's big for me anyway.

Here's some photos from the class.

I encouraged everyone to create whatever they wanted.  It was fun seeing what each one of them came up with!
Thank you ladies, for making it so much fun!
