So glad I made it to this class. My friend Susan Goodman was the teacher. She is so talented, especially in mixed media. You should see her home!!!
We were first taught how to make these "memory jars". She taught us the secret of using black caulk as the base in which to stick our stuff! Just squirt out some caulk on the jar and spread it around evenly with tip. Only work on a small section at a time. And have PLENTY of damp paper towels ready for your dirty fingers!
This is Susan's half finished jar.
The beginning of mine. It will be "Time in a bottle"
After about an hour of playing in the caulk and pretties we switched gears and went to making Memory Books.
I started with a kids cardboard book which I had gessoed before class. Then went crazy from there!
(Look at that Boy Hair, would ya?)
I'll never cuss doing my hair again!!!
