This weekend I spent an art day taking a lettering class with Joanne Sharpe.
She's a great teacher. I learned a lot and had some relaxing play time.
Just what I needed!
We were playing with some of her lettering techniques from her book.
There were so many techniques I didn't get through them all, but that was OK. This was not a class to rush and finish everything on the list. This was a class to work on what you were feeling.
The assignment was to work on some more at home over a couple of months.
I think this would be a great thing to do while watching TV!
We worked in a student type composition book. We collaged the covers with some scrap paper. I wanted to use some washi tape too. So I did.
We also used washi tape on the edges our glued book pages. Makes a real pretty view.
Here's a few more views of my accomplishments.
Very happy with my watercolor cover page. I picked up a pack of Joanne Sharpe's Peerless watercolor sheets-her color picks. Love these bright colors!
I highly recommend taking a class with Joanne is you ever get the chance.
So the weekend flew by as usual and today I am off from work, taking my mom to the infectious disease specialist. Hoping for a good day-Mom is not remembering a lot of details lately. We've discovered she has Lyme disease, and she doesn't even remember she has it. Not sure how she'll be...or act...as she is very difficult at times.
All I want to do is play with more paints and markers and tape...but daughterly duty calls.
Tomorrow- I am off for the Veteran's Day Holiday!
Have a great day.
