I’m amazed….

As you know I am such a sporadic poster, it amazes me that I ever have any visitors. So today I opened Blogger and just for funzies I clicked on the Stats tab and this is what I saw for visits last week…United States 53, France 15, Colombia 9, Canada 4, Ukraine 3, Germany 1,Israel 1, Japan 1, Netherlands 1, New Zealand 1.

Yep, I’m amazed especially because I hadn’t posted since March. People actually do come to my blog. Folks looked at lots of different posts, some as far back as January 2009.

So a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who comes here to take a peek at my occasional projects.

I’ve been taking a great class called the She Art Workshop. It’s over now but if Christy offers it again, you should take it. It’s a great way to learn mixed media, as I did, or to have fun learning techniques using products that you haven’t used before.  I’ve just begun her next workshop She Had Three Hearts.

SANY2110Here is my latest She Art girl. The style for this lesson was vintage. So I used a drawing of a 1950s woman on a McCall’s sewing pattern as my guide. Definitely the hair is all wrong, it should be lots shorter and closely cropped. I haven’t come up with a four letter word I want to put on the banner either.  I like the overall coloring and enjoyed figuring out how to create a pattern from an image.

Here are some close up shots. SANY2114

Creating the backgrounds is my favorite part. Papers, paint, stamps, rubons, ink, texture, sprays, pens. All on a 6” x 8” canvas. All supplies are from my stash and are things that I’ve picked up over the years.
Christy’s videos are so fun to watch. Not only are they informative but she has such a fun personality and it really comes through as she is working on her examples.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful and thoughtful Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to all who serve our country in the military; past, present and future. Thank you Dad, and thank you in advance Lauren (my niece)!

Happy crafting!
