Ok…where do I start? I LOVE Michael deMeng! Come on… you know what I mean. I took his shoe shrine class all day today and I am going to go so far as to say…right here…that the class KICKED ASS!
I think a lot of you have known that I have been having mental anguish over making so many cards. Cards here cards there…happy this, thank you that…honestly- I am tired. I needed to get my hands dirty with something else and I am so glad I took this class! Everything was perfect!
El hombre taught us how to do so many things….from tips on how to better use the Dremmel, how to age paper with Golden fluid acrylics…about composition..how to mix paint…how to use interference and metallic colors…you name it…the class was all encompassing.
The best part was that it wasn’t a class where we had to sit and listen and feverishly take notes. It was free flowing and casual. Michael is so awesome to listen to…he teaches it so you “get it”...I don’t know how to explain it. All I can say is if he comes to your town- take the class.
Check out my shrine. I am in love with it the more I look at it. You can see how the shoe started out and how I changed the color using acrylic paints. The picture is of my grandfather in 1914…I also included sheet music in my grandfather’s handwriting. I love how this turned out!
Today was an “ah-ha” moment for ol’ Julie. I found something I like to do…and learned many things to try on other projects.
Thank you for coming by! See you tomorrow.
