~Artful Gathering Class~

 Well, here it is creation from the Artful Gathering Class I took. I really wanted to learn how to do the weave on the bottom. I need to keep working at it. Some of the students in this class have created some awesome pieces!
 The outline of the image is from a cover of an old book.
 I love this picture. Double click and you can see up close. Up on the left hand corner I put the word "dramatic" cut off the book itself. I thought the girl looked rather dramatic. And then below that...
I put the words, "How can I wait so long". 
I had a lot of fun taking this class. There were many others offered but the class is only opened for a  limited time, so I only signed up for one. It ends the 27th so it's probably a good thing I only signed up for one. So many wonderful artists teaching!  Nancy Maxwell James had one too. I wanted to take her class too but maybe she will offer it again! :)

If you've thought of taking an online it! It's so much fun learning new techniques and expanding your creating field.

Thanks again for stopping by dear ones. I hope your week is fabulously creative!
