Home Again, Home Again, Giggidy-gig

I am back from my amazing whirlwind weekend in NJ. I had such a wonderful time and met so many talented artists and learned so much! I have a ton of pictures and will have to post them over a couple of days. The first day we did melt-art with Suze, who I have to say was my favorite part of the whole weekend.
Here she is (a bit blurry) teaching us all about melt-art.
Here is a photo of just a few of the projects we did with the melt-art pot. A crackle aging, a faux colored soldering, and poured colored utee accents with perfect-pearls.
Here is a shot of us working. The blond taking a photo is an amazing artist named Jessica who is from Canada. We had a lot of fun sitting together this weekend.
Here is a photo of three of the projects we did up close.

Here we are holding up our project boards at the end of class--we did nine little projects in all. Can you find me in the photo? It's like artist "Where's Waldo."
Later that day we were taught by Claudine. Here she is talking to us about our new fine-art products.

I have lots more pictures from my classes with Tim and of my "graduation." I will try to get everything posted in the next day or so! I am so full of ideas and new projects I want to try, I just don't know where to start. Hopefully, I'll be able to put some more "how-to's" up on my blog in the near future.
