Met ppl from Canada, Sweden, Australia, Lebanon, Scotland & "tried" answering ?s w/a grp from Holland that I had lunch with. Truly an International Event. A few sleepless nights;many lasting memories.
Until next time, Houston.

*** Time ***

************ Trust and Obey *********
Where did all my creative energy go? I cannot believe I have not blogged in MONTHS. The energy is still here but was too far away from blogging. I have been taking workshops locally and online and learning all sorts of new creative techniques. My first love still seems to be in Fiber and Mixed Media.


This collage piece was done during a workshop I took with Carmen Torbus http://torbusco.ning.com/profile/Carmen Carmen teaches a great technique on collage with acrylics using your finger. Yepp... no paint brushes..... just your fingers. I love it. I think I still need help with color theory and composition. Looks like all I've mastered is choosing a great acrylic brand (Golden) and decided from here on forward...its gel medium all the way.

Participated in a very exciting Workshop last week; with Lesley Riley and some friends. LOVED IT!!

Here's one previous scrap (gold heart), the design on green fabric was my project from Lesley's workshop and the RED mod podge is the paper I used to cover my workspace. I just love the color combinations.
