I know I can't stop talking about the weather here in Phoenix, but oh wow, it's just gorgeous! Perfect weather. Love it!
My day began setting up the booth for Crafter's Workshop. I'm here to demo their stencils for two days during NAMTA's Art Materials World show.
Mostly naked booth:
Very unflattering photo of me constructing the booth:
Booth all covered and we're heading home for the day:
And lest you forget yesterday's post, I've found some more nifty and inspirational textures and patterns in the last twenty-four hours:
After a hard day's work, the lovely and very talented Dina Wakley came and picked us up!
She shared some amazing pizza...
...and whisked us off to the Creative Quest, a store in Glendale, AZ.
What a gorgeous store! Filled with the most beautiful things (I did *have* to buy a few things)! How I wish I were local! I would take every bookbinding class Kathie has to offer!
As luck would have it, we happened to be visiting on a day that the store was hosting a mixed media meetup. So many very talented girls were there! I missed taking photos of an entire table of four ladies (and some gorgeous sketchbooks and other projects), but here are some friendly faces:
I couldn't find blog links for everyone (so if you're reading and have one, send it to me and I'll add it) but here's what I found: Tina, Samantha Kira, Penney, and April Hall. Check them out!
It was lots of fun to spend a few hours painting...
...and I got to watch Dina do her thing:
Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I'm teaching an awesome class at The Ink Pad on Saturday!
Even if you are 100% sure that you can’t draw, come and learn how wonderfully fast and easy it is to create a mixed media painting. I’ll share tips and techniques for awesome texture, bright colors, easy shading, and fantastic results! I will share my fun and zany method for working on 2-3 different canvases at the same time (depending on how quickly you like to work)!
