Still Catching Up

Today I realized I've only posted one of my projects from my Wanderlust class.  Below are a few of my favorite art journal pages created for the class. I still have some catching up to do, but look forward a few of the techniques that are waiting to be completed.

Mixed Media with Finnabair

Wow! I can't believe March has come and gone so soon.  It was a  very busy month and I feel like I'm playing catch-up not only here, on the blog, with my art.  With that said I'm going to start at the end of the month, since the most exciting event happened then.

The last weekend in March my sister Fran and I had the privilege of being able to participate in a live class given by the talented Finnabair. She is an extremely talented artist and a great teacher, walking the class through the mixed media process step by step.

Our class was an 8 hour journey into the world of mixed media, and it felt like we used every art medium known to man. After many hours and layers of gesso, mat medium, paint, wax, and many other items the final layer was done.  It was so worth have our fingers stuck together and having to peel off the glue and paint.

This was the first step of the process. Modeling paste, laces, and burlap.

It was a long and exhausting day, but so worth it. I love the way my piece turned out.
