Well hello everyone can you see the big smile on my face Its because of the great weekend I had .
Yes you guessed it I spent the weekend learning How Finnabair creates her amazing mixed media projects . I had a really great time and learnt a lot and got to play with products I have never used before . It was really hot all weekend here in Brisbane and for the first time since I got my solar hot water on I can say it is Sunny Queensland .The weather didnt stop anyones eagerness to learn. There where some ladies there that had come all the way from Lismore for the classses and one from NZ . I asked her why she didnt just wait for Finn to get to NZ as it was next on her tour . The Lady said she was only doing two classes at the NZ leg of the tour and she wanted to do all four so she came to Brissy to do them. Now thats dedicated . 

Me and Finn , Iam your bigest fan follow you untill you love me !!!!LOl

Some of my Facebook friends Tina Connelly , Nicole Nopke ,Julia AKA Mumma Bear, Allison Bevis. Yeah I know I am looking a bit wierd in the back there .
Finn doesnt use paint trays she just uses her hand to mix colour on so Tina and I followed suit in true Finn style ..

I will add photos of my finished creations in the next couple of days . Stay tuned and stay safe Shazza

Hi everyone well I have had enough of the rain here in Queensland everywhere is flooding and we are all growing webbed feet to cope LOL. I held a Mixed Media She Art class at my place on Saturday night I did think it wouldnt go ahead because of the flooding but everyone braved the weather and attended. What a great bunch of ladies . I didnt get to bed untill 1oclock but very happy . First up  is a photo of one of my canvases I did in the first She Art  class I taught and used as my demo  .
Close ups  . We all had a great time in the class and enjoyed making new friends .
This is the lovely Heidi Williams and her creation , everyone thought it looked abit like me same kind of hair .

Next is Alison Bevis Alison is very quite but her work speaks volumes . (Alison teaches at Kaiser BrownsPlains as well )

Next we have Miss Purple opps I mean Cassandra Highet  . Cassandra got adventurous  and we where all liking  her winged girl  Great work .

The lovely Mumma Bear aka Julia ( I knew I would like this lady with a that kinda name, My children call me Mumma bear and Iam Nanna bear to my grandchildren )
Julia told she was so excited and couldnt wait to try this again .

Well Julia did go home and try it again and she is on fire This is some more of her work .

Julia has bloomed as a Mixed Media artist Iam so happy when I see poeple getting as excited as I do about craft it gives me the warm and fuzzies . Great job Julia .
