some art pages

Back earlier in the summer I won a blog giveaway of a free art workshop on the online event "Artful Gathering".  The workshop I won (an $80+ value!) was Pam Carriker's Visual Journalism 101, which was comprised of 5 sessions in July.  Ironically,  the free workshop was kind of like the proverbial $600 tomato that gardeners grow:  I had to upgrade our internet speed, upgrade my mac's operating system, buy supplies of course, and ultimately had to have a whole new computer to take advantage of this opportunity.  But it was all worth it, as I learned some really great paint and composition techniques -- since I have next to no art background.  Above and below are two of the pages I made.

And below here, is the altered book page I did for August's altered book round robin.  The theme for this book was "Sewing".  I found a couple of sewing images in an old book and layered them and some paper on to a sewing pattern paper, along with a sewing themed nursery rhyme.

Blogs really need a 'thumbs up' button. Nice work:)
