Beta Testing at Violettes

All group photos are taken by Nicci's six year old son
an aspiring photographer!

Violette held a beta testing workshop at her magic cottage yesterday. It was superb; I’d give it an “A” rating all the way, for clarity, organization, and information! Learning invaluable journal binding skills, opening my realm for possible new endeavors.

A future self bound book of my poetry for a family member, a coffee table conversation piece touting bits of my art, or that long awaited illustrated children’s book. Once again Violette has endowed me with a present that will continue to grow and embellish my artistic life even more!!

Thanks Violette for the information packed session! It was a very enjoyable mother daughter day and great visit with my fellow artist friends Violette and Nicci.Although Violette found there to be a few glitches, from my perspective it went really well.Even though I didn't get the prospected project completed I left with a large chunk of work and new knowledge to finish it on my own.

Being uncomfortable to draw in public Pepper used
one of my faces as a template for her book.

Artist just wanna have fun!!

I’d recommend this innovated workshop as a gift for that artistic teenager, for creative souls in search of new inspiration, a unique wedding shower suggestion for the bride who has everything, a ladies birthday party, a girl’s night out, or an opportunity to explore your untapped creative side. Even the most particular scrap booker could benefit with interesting new techniques to take their scrap booking to a new level! I’m not kidding I came away packed with new skills; I am one deeply inspired, exhausted guinea pig!!! I hit the sack before nine and slept until midnight! I was so excited I just had to get up and blog about it!!! Unfortunately my main PC wouldn't let me post anything until now!! So I went back to bed after I wrote it! For more about our day with photos from the facilitators perspective read here!!

Niccis book

This upcoming weekend Sept 27th Nicci will be an attending artist at the annual Granville Island Ferries garbage can decorating contest! A charitable family fun event! Take yourself down there and enjoy watching a group of artist put their individual flavor on a garbage can that will then be auctioned off that day to buy supplies for the Children’s Hospital art program!
