March Green and Yellow Card

I'm a bit late with my colors postcard for March, but it's done and awaiting mailing.

I call it "Yellow-Green Spectrum," but I guess it could also be called "The Button Snake"!

The background uses my handmade papers, and the circles are all punched from my papers as well. I don't know where this strange, abstract idea came from, but it was fun to make. I hope Carol enjoys it. It certainly is bright. ;-)

Kelly's Faces Class

Last weekend Jean and I took a fun and different class with Kelly Kilmer. We chose faces from magazines and painted over them to give them a unique, arty effect.

Here are some of the works in progress I snapped during the class:

These are Kelly's faces, dashed off in what seemed like moments, while the rest of us struggled and worked painstakingly on our pieces!

Kelly and Annette having fun. The food provided by our host Staci put everyone in a great mood:

And here's Jean at work on my favorite face of the day:

Lastly, here are my faces:

Jean and I plan to get together to do more of these, and then scan them to use in our collages and altered books. Leave it to Kelly to come up with such an innovative by relatively simple idea!
