2014 ~ Art Is You ~ round 2

                                 Are you ready for round two?

just a peek

  As promised, here are a few pieces that I created,the pics are only snippets as they are WIP
           This first grouping is from Seth's class - yummy color!




                                   Next some snippets from Jessica's class
Some pulls from a Gelli plate
I have to tell you, this is my first time using a Gelli plate-and yes I was scared!teehee Everyone uses them and here I am in a class with one staring me straight in the face!
I rather like the warm orange and gold one to the right!
            I hope to have this canvas finished soon to share with you-
                                   so don't touch that dial!
Art in Progress
                              More art below after a few more pics!
                                                      Saturday- Day 4 

                                   The famous Art Trunk Show!
This is where Artists come from all over and bring their wonderful creations-everything-
metal-working,canvas,stamps,clothing,dolls,just to name a few and everyone can shop till they drop! Unfortunately,I dropped before I had a full shop-

 I finally got to meet my former design team partner and fabulous artist - Sarah " WonderStrumpet" Trumpp!
Sarah's creation- I had to have her!Yes,she is a she!

Jen Crossley and Seth were laughing it up so I had to take several shots to get it just right! this is a nice one!
                              I also did a bit of shopping here with Jen!
    Love her and her art! She is also very witty,ok, down right silly and fun!        

 I took Saturday off from classes so I could spend an afternoon with my hub!  While I shopped, Riley went to a deli nearby to get us lunch- delish! But after that I hit the wall and never made it back out of the room until later that evening...ohhh the things I could have bought!  "(

resting after a hard lunch! heehee

My friend Kay Wallace and I Saturday evening- I found out- she also took Saturday for a much needed rest!
                            Sunday - Day 5          
                                    Morning motivator with Rice,
              Art Is You coordinators and partners in crime- 
                      Ellen Legare and Sallianne McClelland
                   Lunchbreak with friends, Kay Wallace and Judy Shea!
                                             Love these gals!
My apron I created for Art Is You
Some treasures gathered from Art Is You- charms,cards,a stamp I won ~all Fun!

Sunday Day 5 Class
Gypsies,Tramps & Thieves 
with Andrea Matus DeMeng 
Andrea's art and style has always intrigued me, and so I was delighted to find her teaching at Art Is You.
Above are two of her many pieces she brought to share and for us to gain inspiration from- I love the depth and beauty she achieves with her designs.
A no nonsense class, we had demos and instruction and then music to create by- when the music stopped- time to move on to the next step!
Great playlist-btw!
Thank you Andrea for a fabulous class- I only wish I had  week to learn more!

The layers & colors Andrea uses-yum-just makes my head swoon!
     Here is my beginning collage  and some pieces for audition

After layers of paint and a few beginning pieces adhered

 This would be my final canvas- although I think there is more to be done with it- I had some thoughts on my ride home that I think might work well- stay tuned!

And now to my final piece of created art to share. This is the pin that I made in Kecia's class.
I really love how it turned out and have been wearing it proudly! 
Still might add a bit in the empty circle- or maybe not! We'll see!


Thanks so much for joining me again! I look forward to your thoughts!

WOWEE so much fun and creativity...
I can see where you needed a break.
Events like this are so intense in a good way but it is easy to go on overload.
Your teacher selections all speak to me as do your art creations Jackie.
Thanks for sharing
and are you now hooked on gelli printing!

Astrid Maclean said...

Wow, amazing photos, amazing project and an amazing post.... I am trying very hard not to be jealous of you American girls to be able to attend an event like this! Oh how I wish something like this would exist in the UK, you guys are light years ahead of us.....

Wow! This is a stunning post! I love those collages you created so much and that pin - fabulous! You look as if you were having so much fun too, Jackie - lovely, bright smile!

I love seeing all your works im progress and the finished ones. how fabulous to take a class from Andrea-I really like her art--did you read the article about her in Somerset Studios magazine? Glad you took an afternoon off--you can just wear yourself completely out--but I know when I have been to shows and classes like this it is really hard to "turn it off" and relax!!

Amazing experience! It must have been crazy fun and inspiring to work with those artists...Seth, Kecia, Andrea!

Wow, what a bundle of artful inspiration and information! You obviously had a truly exciting and wonderful week! I so envy you the experience of getting to work with all these talented folk!

Can't wait to see your finished canvas and your post also reminded me to make more use of my Gelli Plate! ;)

Looking through all your photos brought Art-Is-You flooding back to me this morning, Jackie! I love it so very much. I also loved meeting online friends in person, reuniting with old friends and making new ones. It was super to be challenge artfully by such wonderful instructors and mentors. Love that picture of you and me--just stole it! Mwah!

Beautiful work Jackie- I'm glad I got to live Art-is-You through your blog- as I was totally incapacitated most of the time. I too too Seth's I-Witness class- back at the Ink Pad December 2013. (haven't blogged it yet of course, lol) ALL of your classes looked great- if I had been well, I would have been right there with you. You made such wonderful beautiful pieces- thank you for sharing your photos.
