PRIMA mixed media album class

when i found out that PRIMA's educators sharon laakkonen and cari fennell are coming to the netherlands i knew that there is only one thing to do - sing in for their classes!

unfortunately due to lack of time i could attend only the MIXED MEDIA ALBUM class with sharon laakkonen! and i can honestly tell you it was AMAZING!

we played with PanPastels {amazing new mixed mediums - the artist pastels in a pan}, paint {tim holtz' dabbers}, ink, stamps, masks, watercolor stuff and more PRIMA goodies.

here is what i created on this amazing class:

i coloured the mixed media album with panpastels. i used about 10 different colours to achieve the colours and the shadowing i wanted.

then we worked with the watercolour sheets {the big blue/pink heart} from the album filling. i stamped the big heart {donna downey stamp} with clear ink and then i coloured the page with panpastels.

the resist canvas sheets {the pink damask sheet and the yellow notes sheet} i coloured with watercolour paint - mixing colours, applying different techniques to make the resist pattern appear on the front part. 

on the plain canvas sheets {the brown heart with glitter and the stamped one} - i used watercolor paint, large stamps with watercolour paint on one page and acrylic paint on the other; added glitter and distress ink to create the shadow effect.

i had a lot of FUN playing with the different techniques and the different mixed art mediums.

and here are some pictures of the lovely ladies from this class

on my way back to amsterdam i travelled with sharon and cari - the most creative and sweet ladies ever! they are absolutely amazing not only as artists, but as persons as well! i'm looking forward to their next visit  in holland!

hugs 'n smiles,
