Post Art & Soul Retreat!!

The retreat has finished and i just completed an additional course at the Studio of Sally Jean Alexander (her book is "Pretty Little Things"). I could barely sleep all week, learning sooooo many new things and taking far too many classes from 9 am until 10 pm every day!!! I didnt get a LOT of projects completed as my focus was on learning techniques, but i will try to post samples of what i did do, when i get back home this weekend. One quick technique to share: put alcohol inks on a stamper (piece of felt) and dab all over glass. Give it a few minutes to dry, then stamp a design on the glass using black ink pad (not stayz on). After a few minutes rub off the black ink with a paper - you will see that the black ink acted as a resist and you have a clear design left on the glass! We had little "make and takes" of these in between classes. There were 2 ladies from ENgland that attended Art and Soul as well. 600 people in total!! I hope to get back into the swing of blogging when i get home.
