My friend and neighbor, Michelle, is a fabulous artist. When you walk into her home you are surrounded by her gallery of beautiful paintings. She is also an art teacher. A couple of weeks ago she invited me to come to one of her classes that she holds in her home.

This is my “finished” project. It’s a tulip. *chuckle*


(This is as big as you are going to see it! Believe me you don’t want to see it any larger than this!! lol)

Michelle was wonderful. She explained how to use the white and darks to make your image pop. It was really fun despite the fact that I was the only first timer in the class and wished more than once that I could hide my creation under the table. Michelle said that I had just been looking at it for too long. And that if I just put it up and came back in a couple of days it would look better to me. I could relate to that as that is sometimes the case with making cards as well. But the difference is that instead of having to draw your image there is this really cool thing called a stamp! Well I thought I would give the 2 day test a try. Nope. It still looked pretty bad to me!! lol So why do I stamp? Yup you guessed it! I CAN’T DRAW!!!

Awwww… That feels better. 🙂
