I meant to post last week but was busy chilling. Hubby encouraged me to schedule one week a month for me, no appointments, errands or teaching classes & use that week each month for professional development, to work on my business & upcoming classes. So I played with some backgrounds, took a couple of personal classes, checked out some Creativation & technique videos, decided on my February classes, started painting our tiny upstairs bathroom & worked on the canvas class. I think it’s going to be a good addition to my schedule this year.
I saw a pin on Pinterest a few weeks back of a multiple canvas wall collage featuring words & phrases & thought it would make a great class. On Saturday we created our center focal canvas in class. I used my word of the year, Love, for my center canvas.
I am so happy with how it turned out & each participant’s canvas is different based on their color choices & themes for their own displays. Several also used hearts & a couple went a different direction.
This canvas incorporates sponging techniques, stencil work & hand lettering. I worked with acrylics, glaze, molding gel, gilding polish & paint pens.
It is going to be so much fun to design the next set of canvases to compliment this center design.
Take some time to breathe this week. It’s important to rest & take care of you.
