this week i worked on a project for an online class that i took from claudine hellmuth called "home is where the art is"
this project includes 12 different mixed media techniques using her sticky back canvas and other products in her studio line. but the nice part is that if you don't have a certain product, she provides another option...and i always love to know i have options! as most of you know, working with paint and other paint-type materials is not exactly in my comfort zone, but claudine's fresh style and easy instructions made this a project that even i could do!
one of the nicest things about this project is that it was so easy to make it "my own". i decided that i would use our new house as the focal point (our move-in date is two weeks from today...yippeee!). while i still used some of claudine's images, i changed a few to reflect our new house. for example, the house image is a rendering of our new house, the text block is an excerpt of our house contract, there's a butterfly outline to represent transformation, the number "179" is our house number, and of course, i had to sneak in a heart-in-hand image!
thanks, claudine...this was a really fun project and i learned a lot! you can read more about this online class here!
