I participated in the fastest Round Robin Art marathon ever! Ok, maybe not ever, but it was a 1st for me. I attended my monthly "Northern California Mixed Media Artist" class today. It is not really a class per se, but dang it if I don't learn something new each time, so to me, it is a class of deliciously inspired women and teachers.
Today we were instructed to each bring a sheet of watercolor paper and various images, inks,paints, images,trims, etc.
Once we got settled in, we all set up our work stations. A timer was set for 5 minute increments, and once it dinged, we had 5 minutes to get busy, and then pass it to our partner to the left. I believe there were about 8 or 9 of us. At the end of the round, we were the new proud owners of a wonderful collaborative piece of art. We were all so hot and inspired that we did it twice!
Yup, I walked out of there with two completed pieces that were imprinted and created by a bunch of wonderful minds and spirits.
Here are two pieces. (hold on to your chonies!)
I started this piece with tearing a bunch of papers for the background. I love the romantic vintage feel to it.
This second piece I titled, "Buenas Noches"
I love that someone added a Tuscan villa scene. Perfecto!
Speaking of "Round Robins" I am participating in my very first Journal Round Robin. A few Chica's from Swap-botand I are just starting the process. I am making a total of 3 pages for this first book I rec'd the other day. This is one of my entries. (I am keeping the other two a secret, shhhhhhh)
I used collaged papers, inks, glitter, stickers and I hand painted the Chica. This page was inspired by a confessional made on the opposite page. I call this page "Free to Dream" Trust me, it is very fitting to the confessional. :D
