Nesting Birds Canvas - Inspired by Anna Dabrowska

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted on my blog.  So sorry about that everyone!  I've been so busy in the studio - time is FLYING by!

We had a fantastic visit from Anna Dabrowska this month.   LOVE Anna...   If you ever have a chance to take a class with her, do yourself a favour and TAKE IT!   She's lovely and such a joy.   You'll learn so much!

I was able to purchase a kit from her.   Although I won't recreate the projects that she teaches cause -- well -- you have to attend those *wink*,  I wanted to do a broadcast tonight using some of the items from Prima and the LuminArte Silks and Primary Elements.  The canvas above is what I came up with inspired by Anna's style with some Karen touches.*smile*  I hope you like it.

The base is plaster, the birds are chipboard shapes cut out with my Big Shot using a Sizzix die and the the elements are from Anna's Sunrise Sunset collection from Prima.

 I hope you like and get inspired to take a class from Anna!!!!   find out more about Anna ...  visit her blog

A Little Intuitive Painting - USTREAM braodcast

I got out my paints and did a "Happy Paint"   this week on USTREAM.  hehe
Here is what I created

A fun little abstract painting ....   something I just "rolled with".   The goal for this canvas was to paint depth and texture like I love to do but then to soften the palette a little *smile*  Love how this turned out!

Here is the broadcast as uploaded to my youtube channel.  THANKS so much for joining me.

Anna Dabrowska will be at the Art House Studio NEXT WEEKEND teaching three fabulous workshops.  I have space available in all three classes but space is VERY LIMITED!   If you'd like to join us and haven't reserved your space, do so now ...  I'd hate for you to be disappointed!   Link to Anna's Workshops

A couple of the gals who join us every week on USTREAM have asked me to teach a class on how I intuitively paint on Friday July 12th (the day before Anna's classes begin)  So....  I am thrilled to announce that I will be able to do this and have scheduled a class from 1 - 5 based on the techniques used in my USTREAM videos.   If you are in the area ...  love to have you join us!  Please contact the studio to reserve your space and for more information- 519 267 6620 or email
Have a creative day!
