I had a great time at Sandi's yesterday for what she called, "Ugly Art Day!" She is a traditional scrapbooker and wanted to get out of her comfort zone and try something messy or "ugly" as she calls it. I cut some Bristol for us to work on at about 19" x 15" and the goal was to try at least 10 different techniques on our mixed media pieces. I completed ten and Sandi did twelve. I was inspired to complete the piece as part of my homework for an online class I am taking with Dina Wakley. It is called Art Journaling 102 and it is currently in archive, but can be taken anytime. I highly recommend it! See HERE for details!
Have a blessed day!
