We were a short walk away from the beach, which gave us the perfect opportunity to soak up some much needed sunshine!

I got to spend the entire weekend creating with 14 other amazing gals. Our first class was taught by the lovely Jeanne Oliver. We got our creative juices flowing by making backgrounds on water color paper in the morning, which would then be bound into art journals. Serena supplied us with the most amazing supply of vintage papers and ephemera!
Then in the afternoon, Jeanne taught us how to paint faces, which was really outside of my comfort
zone, but so much fun!
It was really interesting to learn two completely different processes from two such amazing artists, and I was so thrilled to meet other gals who love making art as much as I do! Everyone's talents and techniques were so inspiring! Overall, it was a truly fabulous weekend that I felt so privileged to take part in. I was a little nervous about going, because I did not know anyone else who was attending, but it was such an amazing experience that I would absolutely do it again in a heartbeat. Goes to show what is possible when you put yourself out there and take a chance :)
Thanks for stopping by!
