For those of you that missed Emily Falconbridges’ GOT PAINT class, I am truly sorry.
Read these comments from her message board …
"I generally read these posts and do not post myself, but I do have to say how inspiring this class has been. It has, of course, enabled me to be creative and learn new techniques with paint, but more than that – I have pulled out "old product" from my supplies and incorporated it into my layouts. I haven’t felt like creating anything in months and suddenly in one night, I created 4 fantastic layouts based on the new techniques! The other great thing is that once you have a few basic supplies, you can create a bunch of pages without spending extra money. And, I love the fact that I can incorporate my kids in the projects. We stayed busy for half an hour adhering masking tape to a 12×12 piece of paper and the layout was much better because they mixed it up much more than I would have. Thanks Emily I look forward to Got Paint 2"
I LOVE this … even the clean up is inspiring …
"I love to wash out my brushes in the sink and watch the colors run together. It makes like a beautiful rainbow soup. I know, it’s a little weird, but fun! :)"
And then this small world connection — we have the coolest hobby you know?
"Just arrived home from a weekend in Edmonton (500 km south of me, the big city!) where I had a really interesting encounter. One of my missions for the weekend was to pick up more supplies including foam stamps and metallic paints. Well, the lady at the till in the art store in West Edmonton Mall asked me what I was going to use them for and I mentioned a class, the next lady in line asked if it was an online class? at BPS? Got Paint? It turned out to be Veronica from this class!!!! It was very cool the chat IRL!!! HI VERONICA!!!!! I didn’t get to paint this weekend but had fun meeting her and buying supplies, hope to get to this weeks assignment before Week 4 gets here."
I peeked at the gallery and was completed floored by the variety and artistic expression inside!!
LOVED this — colors, design and of course message …

(thanks for letting me share btw)
I’m thinking we’d better run this class again, what do you say?
[and don't forget I'm over at the Studio this month -- come say hi!]
