When the friends in my creativity group noticed my work improving they began to ask me if I could show them how to paint the backgrounds. We did a little workshop this week and here are some of their results.
Pinky included some stamping with her work. I love that stamp and borrowed it, made several copies on other papers to use later.
Karen included some cut outs over her painted page. This page shows the technique of painting designs first with some gesso, then painting over it and wiping off.
April prefers less abstraction. She had some gellato colors that she was trying out for the first time. She liked them a lot. They are water soluble too.
April is taking a lettering class from Joanne Sharpe and gave us all cards and she hand lettered the envelopes.
The next week we took April out shopping for her birthday. We had to shop a little ourselves so she wouldn't feel lonely.
