Judy came to class a newbie. She'd never stamped. Well, she's a changed woman with a new hobby! Stampmaiden has touched some one's life. LOL!!
Would you look at Laura and Gail's bright orange pages. These are not from the Frida mini journal where one would expect bright color to emerge from, but from the Asian Mini Journal!
This kind of artful chaos always brings a smile to my face. LOL! Blue is not the only color birds thrive in. In this little mini journal, they live very well among the vibrant shades of yellow, hot pink, and an orange-melon shade, just to name a few shades of color.
In the end they each walked away with a completed mini journal and a happy heart.
My main goal as a workshop instructor is that everyone leaves with a COMPLETED project and guess what? THEY DID! YAY! Well, one person, who shall remain anonymous, had to leave before the class ended but she did leave with completed pages that she later bound together. I found out cause I called her this morning - Hi Ellie!! So much for remaining anonymous. LOL!!!
It brings me much happiness to see everyone sitting down painting, sharing ideas, laughing, in a nutshell - having fun while making art. When I create a workshop I also want my friends to come away with ideas of their own and they did!!! At the end of the class, Jocelyn was walking around with an idea to create an Egyptian themed book for a friend using the techniques she learned in class. A newbie - Judy, was so happy that she had her own little book and will possibly be putting together something she can call her "own idea!" I know she can do it. Hey, anyone who is brave enough to sign up for a class and has never stamped before is A-OK in my book! This woman is climbing the ladder fast! LOL!!!
I left the shop not feeling tired but excited that everything went well and that everyone left with a smile on her face and with a little journal in her hand.
