Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I'm an artist and traveler living in Wilmington, North Carolina.

From home to every groovy destination it’s all about art. Just art. -

artful gathering 2011

This on-line workshop was a first for me.  It was the first annual Artful Gathering. People joined the classes from around the world. Learning from the art and experiences of the other participants was great. I took one class from Pam Carriker and another from Zinnia Galliher.

Pam's class focused on art journaling techniques. Since art journaling is something I already do it was fun to learn some new ways to use color application techniques, layering, and new tools to make groovy pages.

Zinnia's class focused on creating texture on a variety of surfaces. It was great, messy fun.

The classes were presented as a series of videos. I started each class by watching all the videos and making a few notes. It was easier to refer to the notes instead of searching through video clips when I wanted to be reminded of a particular step in the process. The fact that the notes are pretty is just a bonus.

I'm still working on the book I started in Zinnia's class. The lady with the orange hair insists.

Progress will be posted!

Looking forward to Artful Gathering 2012.
