donna downey workshop
about a year ago, donna downey came to our local scrapbook store and offered several workshops. i was crazy with excitement when i found out that she'd be in town because, i must admit, i'm a huge donna downey fan. donna is a mixed media artist...she dabbles in paper, fabric, books, paint...well, you can see why i'm a fan! here is a photo of one of the projects that i made that weekend (i took all of her workshops but one!). this is one of my favorite pieces of art, not only because it showcases one of my favorite photos of our kids (uh, taken 12 years ago, but still my favorite!), but mainly because i didn't think i could do it. remember, i'm "collage challenged", so i tend to run in the other direction when it comes time to making one! but, i think that my success is a testimony to what a great teacher and motivator that donna is...let me put it this way, if i can do it, anyone can do it!
