Week Three of Claudine Hellmuth @ Home

I am so excited! My chipboard book has finally arrived and I have spent the last not quite week catching up on all the techniques in the class. I am having so much fun and I can't wait to show you all.....just have to wait for the paint to dry and then try and photograph the pages. I am learning so much and making a huge mess at the same time! Now isn't that what you call heaven? Except when my husband unwittingly puts his elbow in things and I have to re-do it.... really it's just another excuse to play with paint! I can now see why my daughter loves playing with paint so much! Roll on next week!

I'm so Excited!!

I am one week into a twelve week on-line course with Claudine Hellmuth, and I am so excited about it all. The first week was fab!!! I have only done the two extra projects as I am still waiting for my chipboard book to arrive. Isn't it typical, I was so sure that I had one that I didn't bother looking for it until the class started.....and low and behold I couldn't find it! I have learnt so much already and am really enjoying geting my hands dirty! I've never done an on-line course before and can't believe how widespread everyone is, it seems that there are people from all over the world! I am looking forward to getting to know everyone and am enjoying looking at everyones blogs and reading all their great ideas. The quality of everyones work has been so high. Can't wait for the rest of the course.
Here are some photos of my attempts; the first one is a painted wooden bangle with rub-ons and added bling and the second is a gesso transfer and etching on canvas.
