I’ll never forget the time someone came along to one of my classes with family photos where she’d had everyone wear teal, because she knew I would use teal products in my class. It’s true I go through phases and the teal one stuck around for ages.
My latest love though, is cream & brown. Splashes of gold and vintage thrown in. I confess it’s seeing Frank Garcia’s work that has inspired me, that and Finnabair’s newest releases have me revelling in the creamy goldness of new grungy Prima lines.
And so my first class at ArtVenture was this one: Primalicious.
(I have done PrimaLicious classes many times before, updated each time it’s basically a double layout, or two singles, using my very favourite Prima products at the time).
I originally did a page like this for the Prima ArtZine. I loved it so much I updated it with newer products and some Imaginarium titles, new resin frames and used it for one of the pages.
This is the second one made with the class:
The leaves are made with a Prima Sizzix die called ‘Arbor’. The layers, flowers and swirls are all Prima. The pics were some taken by Vicki Gibson, a talented photographer from Hamilton.
Put the pages together and they looked like this:
So that was my first class. *loved it so much* and there was some very cool layouts came out of there. I don’t teach so much these days so tend to forget the buzz of seeing everyone with wicked-cool pages created. This was one of those classes I left on a real high at the cool pages produced.
I do have another class to show you – will save it for the last blog post about ArtVenture though. It has some cool images of, well, my students all sitting in a bar lol. How'd that happen?
