Artistic Journey Recap…

Oct 4, 2011

What an awe­some week­end! I was so lucky to get to cre­ate with so many won­der­ful­ly cre­ative and inspir­ing ladies. Weeks before the event began Car­o­line and Car­olyn put out a chal­lenge to those attend­ing Artis­tic Jour­ney to cre­ate a tag telling three things about them­selves. Once they fin­ished they then sent the tags to Car­olyn so she could cre­ate a won­der­ful win­dow dis­play. These are just a few of the tags sent.  I love how each one cap­tures their per­son­al­i­ty. Awe­some job ladies.

Fri­day night, dur­ing our meet and greet each attendee was giv­en a can­vas apron to alter any way they want­ed.… Car­olyn and Car­o­line had sta­tions set up all over The Crafty Scrap­per with lots of trims, embell­ish­ments etc. for them to use. It was so fun see­ing how dif­fer­ent every­one’s apron turned out. The one shown below is the apron my assis­tant, Dar­lene Mack­ey cre­at­ed. I think it turned out so pret­ty.

While the atten­dees were pick­ing and choos­ing items to alter their aprons, each teacher had a make n take sta­tion to cre­ate a lit­tle extra some­thing for them to attach to their apron. Mine was the red satin pleat and tulle flower with the antique jew­el but­ton just under­neath the “d and a” on Dar­lene’s apron. I love lay­er­ing these two trims. You have got to give it a try. This com­bo cre­ates a gor­geous flower.

It tru­ly was a BLAST get­ting to work with Car­olyn, Car­o­line, Dina Wak­ley and Shel­ley Hagan­man. We all stayed at Car­olyn’s house so Fri­day and Sat­ur­day evening after the event we got lots of time to chat and laugh. I real­ly do have the best arty friends one could ever hope to have. I am tru­ly been blessed in this indus­try. The friends I have in this indus­try are true friends and it is awe­some.

I cre­at­ed this col­lage using pho­tos tak­en by Sonia Her­nan­dez Doneghue. I’m so glad she took so many as she real­ly did cap­ture the spir­it of this event. Thanks, Sonia for let­ting me use your pho­tos. You took some awe­some pho­tos.

This col­lage is cre­at­ed from pho­tos I took dur­ing each of my three class­es and when I had a chance to do a quick walk around the store. It was awe­some get­ting to spend the week­end with all you won­der­ful ladies. I hope you enjoyed my class as much as I enjoyed teach­ing it.

Send­ing a great big thank you to Rebec­ca Cross with Pink Paislee. I real­ly appre­ci­ate your spon­sor­ship and prize dona­tions. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


P.S. All pho­tos shown with the Artis­tic Jour­ney 2011 label were tak­en by Sonia Her­nan­dez Doneghue.
