Fun at Donna Downey's Studio

OK, so Betty, Caroline, and I signed up for a Doodling class with Joanne Sharpe last Friday night at Donna Downey's Studio.  Turns out the storms were so bad that she missed her connecting flight in Detroit so Donna improvised at the last minute and offered to let us take her Poppy class if we still wanted to drive down.  Well, duh!

Let me tell you, if you ever have a chance to take a class with this fabulous woman DO IT!  She is beyond talented and yet so down to earth.  She's full of energy and inspiration and you will leave feeling like you're an artist!

So above is a pic of Donna that totally sums her up!  Below she's helping me with a question.

Here's Caroline and I having a blast.

And had to share this one, LOL, Donna is covering up the Tim Holtz logo on Caroline's apron!

Here's a pic of what my canvas turned into.

This is my oldest daughter Taylor and her boyfriend Cole from Prom this year.

Here's a closeup of all the fun texture on the piece:

We played with lots of layers using tags, paints, gesso, molding paste, book text, and lots more.  Had a blast and I'm so glad we went!


  1. sooooo jealous and soooooo love your canvas!

  2. This is awesome! Makes me want to play with some mixed media goodness! I love all the texture and the colors are perfect. Love the cool flowers too! You've already given me an idea for a project I must do!

  3. It was a super fun time!!! These pics just make me giggle! Your canvas is awesome... you did such a great job!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Every comment makes me smile :)
