Art Group, Ink Sprays, Stencils and more!! :)

Hey Everyone!
 I hope ya'll had a great Easter with your family and friends this past weekend!
So today I thought I would inform yall on what I'm really excited about this week! ha ha
If you don't already know the LBH has a Blue House Art Group that meets monthly.
I have attended a few meeting myself but don't always get to come every month.
This month I signed myself up as soon as I found out we are playing with the new Dyan Reavely new Ink Sprays and her Stencils.. plus some really cool embossing paste from Viva Decor!

 I saw all of these products at CHA Winter 2012 in January and I was so drawn into it all. Susan and I spent some time at The Crafter Workshop booth checking out all the new stencils and watching some people demo some fun art journaling. So now I'm beyond excited about this class! Dyan is an amazing artist she has a very neat style and I love her work!!

 My favorite thing about all of this is that there is no right or wrong way in doing it.
Everything you make is a special creation by you!

Here is another artist that I saw at CHA, her name is Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.
We actually got to attend 2 seminars that she was speaking in. She is such a funny gal she had everyone laughing the whole time but she is also very smart and extremely creative. She has her own line of stencils out also with The Crafter Workshop and has an awesome website and blog full our awesome ideas and products. She does great demo videos as well at www.balzerdesigns.com

I hope this post inspiring you get your hands dirty and play around with some fun stencils on your next art project.. scrapbooking, art journaling, or home decor, you can make any piece look great using all these fun products! :) If you are local to the LBH I encourage you to come to Art Group!! Its so much fun!! My favorite thing about Art Group is that its careful, fun and educational. You are always learning lots of new techniques, tips and tricks on all different products. Plus you get to play around and experiment with different colors and ideas. When its over and of course you don't want to stop but you feel like you can do anything! You have so many ideas going through your head that all you want to do is go home and create! I hope you can join us for Art Group if you can't try your best to schedule yourself for a day or even just a few hours a week or a month to sit down and create! Play around with different colors of ink or paints. Try that new technique you were wanting to do.
Trust me you will love it! :)        
    Happy Creating! :)
