Awesome Class!!!

Hi All: Well yesterday was so fun!!! I took 2 classes at Stamp Asylum in Plano from the Phenomenal Anita Houston!!! First was the Encaustic Wax class- by using tools, techniques,and Anita's wonderful teaching skills we all able to make some really fun and beautiful pictures. Playing with the wax is really fun and relaxing. You kinda don't want to stop. Seriously; I'm not kidding! Here's one of my attempts. I know it's not wonderful but totally fun. If you go to Anita's website The Artful Maven (theartfulmaven.blogspot.com) you'll find amazing pictures she's done using Encaustic Wax. As for me its practice, practice, practice. The second class- Let's get Artsy Tags- This was a mixed media class. We used several different products-ink sprays, distress paint, embossing paste, and stamps. Anita showed us how to combine these items to make some really colorful, interesting, and fun pieces. Here's one of mine.
