My First Art Retreat

I held my very first Art Retreat in my house last weekend!!! I absolutely loved having artsy friends come and play for the weekend!!!! Studio is all cleaned and ready .....

Every time my guests showed up I took them to the "Happy Potty" for a photo :o) 
This Is Kelley
Here we have all squeezed in to the "Happy Potty"...hehe... (from left to right) Kelley, Darlene, Becky, and myself. 
Let the FUN begin :o)
Of course, you can't visit my house and not be shadowed by my poodles....Here my Bella wanted to see what Kelley was up to.

Kelley's work space.

I made a new fold-out journal...with this paper...Yum!!!!
My work space.... Decided to make a Common-place book to use some of the old vintage papers I've been hoarding.
Darlene shared with us how she inks up lace, ribbons, and velvet with Dylusion sprays.
 
Here is a picture of my results from coloring seam binding.


Darlene has a snuggle moment with Zoey. (and they were photo bombed)

Darlene and I played a game...we worked on two canvas'. For 2 songs on the radio...then we swapped, worked for 2 songs, then we swapped....here you can see some of the steps.


When we decided we were done we stopped......we now both have a canvas made by us both...a wonderful treasure for sure.... above is my finished canvas.
Went to dinner on our the last night of the retreat at Joe's Crab Shack on the beach.
(we missed Kelley for this meal....she had family come in, and couldn't be there...she was missed)

Becky, Darlene, and I went for a walk on the beach!!!.


All in all it was a perfect ending to a wonderful weekend!!!
Super excited to know my house can handle small retreats!!!
Now, I'm off to plan some more :o)

What great fun and inspiration! Your canvases after the musical chairs game turned out beautifully. Will you offer your art journal class on Instagram again?
