So I finished Paige's class already! It was awesome and I highly recommend it, not matter what style you have. I really enjoyed the challenges.
I've started my next class over at Big Picture Classes - going with Jen Chapin's RAINBOW! Looks so bright and cheery doesn't it?!
First lesson is done and I had so much fun! Needed: stencil, watercolours, water brush! And coffee. That last one is not on the class list as such, but absolutely necessary when playing with new things so you can sit there drinking and staring at blank pages while you figure out what you are going to do.
Not a big user of the stencils or watercolours, but as luck would have it, I had both! And a water brush! (Yeah, I like to collect "things", even when I'm not sure where I'll use them - turned out to be a good thing in this case!)
One I had my stuff ready to go it was just a matter of playing around! The page I ended up with was actually attempt #3 of the same page...as I've mentioned before, I don't plan much so I just started painting one, didn't like it, tried another, didn't like that either so tried another and BOOM! Happy :)
Ended up with this:
I have to confess I'm not in love, love with the layout. I really like it, but its just....different! Although in all honesty, if someone else had made this I'd probably love it, however its made by me so I'm super critical, lol. I'm my worst critic by far.
And that is by no means a reflection on the class, because its awesome. As soon as I finished this one I jumped into the next lesson which has me using STAMPS! My fave! LOL.
I'm really enjoying taking the classes, although only my second at BPC, they are like a breathe of fresh air; trying new things, breaking out of my "norm". Heaps of fun :)
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week has been an amazing one and continues to stay so :) Stay safe!
