Color Love 101

I have seen a lot of on-line classes offered and I've thought about a few but I've not felt to really leap right in.

Until this month.

I got my feet wet with a digital scrap booking class, 1 week, 5 lessons of which I did four.  I had no clue and I actually rather enjoyed it and learned lots.  I don't think I want to actually do digital scrapbooking but I learned a thing or two about my Photoshop Elements program. 

Now I'm going to learn how do better blogging.  I can add pictures and some links.  I can cut and paste.  With good notes and diagrams I may be able to do one or two other things.  That all means I know enough to be dangerous!  lol 

But what I really want to learn is how to make my own art.  And that means I need to learn how to use materials, identify the medium that fits my sensibilities best, and create art unique to me.  I think Joanne Sharpe at Whimspirations might help me.

I like the wide variety of materials I'll be trying.  I like the way she uses colour. I like the stylized flowers and organic shapes, the swirls and doodles.  I like the fine black line.  I like how she uses lettering, in fact, that is an whole nother class.  I like hand made journals.  I like that she includes fabric.  I like her style. 

I've signed up for Color Love 101.
I've ordered my supplies.
I'd like to think I'm ready!

This color class sounds like it is custom fit for you my dear. I don't know how you find the time but then again that is why you are extra inspiring to me. You just keep on the Energizer Bunny! Lesson Love...

There you go again. Jumping into the murky waters of the unknown. How fortuitous for you. And I'm glad you are taking that colors class. It will be fun, I'm sure. BTW, I am going to check out Jeff's free class, too.
