Some Alisa Burke Cuteness!

Alisa Burke (who wrote one of my favourite books: Canvas Remix) has to be one of the cutest human beings out there. She is so sweet, super talented and more fun than I could have imagined! I loved her class. This style of painting, as you all know, puts me in my "happy place". eeeeeeek!!!

Here is a pic that Anina took of me creating my masterpiece ;)

ONE FABULOUS thing (that also was a little expensive since I HAD to order the full line for the studio when I got home) was playing with Jacquard's Dye-Na-flow inks. OMG You paint with them, blend with them, caress them.... okay, maybe not caress them, but you get the idea*wink*. I can't wait to show you all when they come in. I think I'll have to do a video. *smile*

That night, fully inspired, I had to create a bag with the canvas I made. SO... I hustled over to the Quilt Store and bought myself a couple of fat quarters and lined the bag to use (and added a fun handle too). LOVE my new bag! Drop by the studio to see for yourself!! I'd love to show it off to you!!

Hope you're having a creative day!!

I am neck deep in Mixed Minded prep now -- and loving that too!! If you haven't registered, there is still time but that clock is ticking!!! Let me know if you'd like to come!

Have a great one everyone!!!
