"I don't know if I can do this"

That was one of the quotes from one of the lovely participants at the DREAM CATCHER Workshop last night..... but once she started the first layer, she was getting right 'into it'....

There were 4 excited and eager 'students just itching to get started, and it was just lovely to have a Mum, daughter and 10 year old Grand daughter, enjoying making art together. I truly love the chatter, and the inspiration we give each other, and of course, the friendships we created whilst we were making art together.

We had fun using Dylusions Ink Sprays, JW Acrylic Artists Ink, and Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks to create our Dream Catcher Canvases... The colours are vibrant, and every canvas was so different... I thought this 'project' would be a great way to learn how to 'let go' and 'accept' the organic flow of the inks... to just LET IT HAPPEN! ..... and the results speak for themselves.

The beginning of Mel's Dream Catcher

 Mel's finished Dream catcher canvas.... GORGEOUS colour combo.
Debbie's Dream Catcher
 Debbie's finished Dream Catcher... for her Grandson's Bedroom :-)
The beginning of Dakota's Dream Catcher... 
Dakota is 10 years old and this is her finished Dream Catcher... FABULOUS!!!
 This is Charmaine's finished Dream Catcher.. I lovoove the colours :-)


and last, but not least, my finished Dream Catcher... I added KindyGlitz to create highlights, and it looks gorgeous with the 'matte' background and the random sparkle.




 I love them ALL...

 and


I felt like going back to my 'Joynal' today, by Jane Davenport . I LOVE this journal... I need to do more in it!

I've had so many online classes 'on the go', and deciding which one to stick to has been a difficult choice.

So, I just go with which one 'feels right' at the time...

I wonder what I will do next?
