best day ~ art & design


Hello friends...
Thank you for stopping in today.
The next few days I would love to share with you a few results of a class I am in the middle of taking right now. It is WilnaFurstenberg's Art&Design as offered over at BigPicturesClasses.

The reality of taking classes just is so fabulous to get one to think outside of one's own box.

Everyone has huge creative capacities. The challenge is to develop them. ~Ken Robinson

It's a creative exercise to take time and look into someone else's process. How they develop their ideas. And then to literally watch them become a creative work right before your eyes. It develops my own current creative capacities. It allows the opportunity to develop creatively in a bit of a different direction and experiment and try new things.

I adore wilna's style. While it is not anywhere near my own, I can learn so much from her and her art techniques. She unwraps different techniques that I may not have thought of on my own. It is freeing and inspiring all at the same time.

The first week was all about grids. This page here is a very traditional grid layout. The new for me was playing with watercolor and watercolor paper and integrating those ideas into a page. New patterns and colors and concepts went to work for me here and I love the result.

This page is part of our 2014 family album. While I have a whole lot of pocket pages telling the story of our year, traditional 'scrapbook' layouts are sneaking in there as well. Love how that is turning out too.

I realize this particular class is already closed for purchase. But take the opportunity as they come up to take classes that may not fit your 'normal' creative way. Play. Experiment. And let your heart have fun.

Till next time.
