The Painted Page part 3 - my new designer jeans!

One of my favorite parts of the workshop was Michelle spray painting a pair of my jeans. They ROCK!!!!

Michelle and I with my awesome Michelle Ward original jeans. Michelle's jeans ROCK too. (Her finger is black because I kept missing the paper when she was helping me with the spray paint. Did I mention that she's a good sport?)

The Class

Check out Michelle's blog for her post about the workshop. My jeans and I made her blog (my hands did too).

Thanks to Kathy and Bill for another fantastic weekend at Valley Ridge Art Studio. I met some wonderful people, learned a lot, listened to some fab music, had some great food, enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere, came home with my head full of ideas and the coolest pair of jeans!!!

This is just a little part of the great view from the Studio.

Did I tell you I love my jeans?!!

The Painted Page Day 2

Day 2 was spent working with materials that Michelle provided to start putting content on our pages. She also gave us a demonstration on using spray paint and stencils. We were able to spray paint some of our pages. I immediately bought some spray paint when I returned home and have been practicing. You can see all of my pages on my flickr site including pages I've done since I returned home.

Here are some examples of my work from Day 2.

Painted Page (aka A Trip To Valley Ridge) Day 1

I was very fortunate to be able to take a workshop called The Painted Page given by Michelle Ward at Valley Ridge Art Studio (thankfully someone cancelled and I was able to get in). We worked on painting pages for a visual journal. Day 1 was techniques to get some color down on the page. Michelle is a great instructor and had a wonderfull handout prepared. It has really helped me a home as I continue to work on my pages. You can see all of my pages on my flickr site.

Here are a couple of samples from my pages on Day 1.
