Did you know, she will come to your studio and teach? It's like an Art House Call. I found her to be just the sweetest most caring and sharing person.
She will come to your studio too.
Just do what I did.
I purchased the latest issue of Somerset Studio a couple of weeks ago. It is full of inspiration, direction and instruction from many artist. I devoured it and being a huge fan of Misty Mawn, I was elated to read her directions of two of the pieces in this issue.
Me being Norah's pal took Misty's challenge.
The first one is "Sweet Fern" and will go into my True Colors Journal as one of the "green" pages. Although , I think it would fit the "blue and ochre" page as well. To me, it is her name that relegates her to green. Don't you think?
I enjoyed the workshop immensely. I tried to work fast as Misty says she does and painted both of these yesterday. I'm still not too good with transparency transfers but I did try. I didn't have the egg stamp from Michelle Ward's collection that was featured in this issue. But you know I had carved a stamp the day before of Ashley so I quickly carved an egg stamp for the challenge.
I call this second one, "Willing Heart" and it will go into my True Color Journal as my aqua page.
The bluebird eggs are truly the most beautiful aqua turquoise and both pieces feature a transparency transfer of my bluebird nest box.
Speaking of my True Colors Journal, I have added the artist links back to my side bar (they were there before I changed to the new and improved blogger). Also added links to my other pages.
Well, I guess I don't have to tell you what a great holiday I'm having....It's an ART party weekend!
