Today was a great day. It started off with my daughter and I working (playing) on the Art of Silliness Class that I am taking with Carla Sonheim. She is the author of the wonderful book I mentioned in an earlier post. Well, the class is even more fun! There is a new worksheet to complete each day. The class is all about being silly in your artwork and I have to say we are being silly.
One worksheet the I found particularly entertaining involved drawing creatures from random squiggle lines. Here is the blank worksheet:
So on to more fun and creativity today. I spent the day with my friend Allison painting, cutting, pasting, drawing and more! We decided to create journal pages using a Somerset Workshop called "Fruits of The Spirit: Lively Layers" from the May/June 2011 issue of Somerset Studio magazine.
It was really fun to do. I have to say it's one of the first projects that involved layering that actually looked layered when the page was complete. Here is my page:
Since I am an on line Ecourse junkie, I thought I'd show you my latest creation from 21 Secrets. My daughter Madi and I spent mother's day together working on this class called Urban Layer Cake. The instructor's name is Tammy Garcia. Tammy has a great blog called Daisy Yellow a Vivid life with Kids.
The class explained a process of painting over Fiber Paste using acrylic paints and a credit card. Here is my page:

I hope that you enjoyed all of our Art playtime. Hope you find some of your own time to play!
