I just had the most wonderful time with Tangie Baxter!!! She is an art journal artist that teaches classes online and all around the country. She lives local for me...and held an art journal class in her home!! Everything was decorated fabulously and super fantastic treats were there to make me fatter :):). That is just the beginning... then we sat and arted for 2 days. Tangie had so many techniques to show us and inspiration was had everywhere. Tangies home is just filled with wonderful art that she did and many other artists she has collected on her travels. I felt so at home while I was there. Every student was just gushing with excitement!! Here are some of my pictures of my adventure with Ms. Tangie!!
Here you can see the class room set up. This is Tangies familyroom. Her wonderful hubby moved all the furniture to the gargae so we could have enough space to spread out!!
She put all our supplies on her panio!!
First thing Tangie had us do was draw our inner critic!! Which was done with my weak had (left). Then we had to spell are name backwards. This is the name of my inner critic :O):O) Oh...and you could not lift your pen up either. Then we put them all in timeout!!!
We did not want to see them again while we were working on our journals!!
Time to paint.... Tangie loves to finger paint!! So, I went for it too!!
Here is my art on the finger painted page!!
Tangie had art journals and kits made up for us...these are what we worked on. She had an Alice and Wonderland theme going. Collage page.
My finished Alice spread!!
....and the finished spread you saw me working on!!
I had a WONDERFUL time!! We worked from 7pm to 11pm on friday night....then 10am to 10pm on Saturday!! WOW!!! There were a few times I just had to walk around... I was sooo over stimulated!! There was so much to see and hear....I want to go back again next year!!
Thank you Tangie for the most wonderful time!! You are such a fantastic Lady!! I look forward to getting to know you and becoming friends!! ....and arting with you and your Momma (Becky)!! BTW- your Momma is just a true gem!! I really loved meeting her and seeing her artwork!!
I had such a wonderful time they had to kick me out :):) (giggle) I didn't want to leave. (sigh)
