From the Worktable

I took some pictures of my worktable after I finished  the first part of the class I'm taking with Sharon Tomlinson and Deryn Mentock,  Of Towers & Turrets.  I think it is safe to say from what I've gathered of all the conversations going on over there that I'm not the only one having fun.

So we've used some fun colored card stock and scrounged around in our images

carved some primitive stamps...I say primitive in regards to me and MY skills...there are some talented stamp carvers over there!

dug through more images

played with some stencils I had

 made a deliciously fun mess on the paint table

spent lots of time auditioning elements and gluing the finalists

for the first finished piece (oh yes more are planned)
The large face was an image I actually over painted
as I was a tad hesitant about my very rusty face painting skills.

Some of my new metal tools for the next part of the class which starts Friday.  I hope I don't burn down this old shabby cottage! :-)

So it's mid week and I have bunches of projects in different stages.  Some are still in my head and just waiting for the time they can escape.  Back to work for me and wishing everyone a  Happy Wednesday!

Hi Gail, it is neat to see what you are learning in your class. Maybe if I ever get to retire from my day job, I will get to take some of the classes that I have always wanted to try. Thanks for sharing your experience. Have a great day.

I am fascinated by other people's spaces and creativity. (Even have some on my Links I Love page.)
This winter is a perfect time for me to take a class. I am a no-nothing at digital images but I want so badly to play along. Any hints on how to start?
