Yesterday I took three (THREE) classes from Michelle Zindorf, the Queen of the brayer. This is the last year she is taking her show on the road, and when I saw she'd be in VA, I signed up for all three classes.
I have to tell you, three 3-hour classes in one day is A LOT! By the beginning of the third class, those of us who had been there since 9 am were definitely punchy, perhaps bordering on unruly, though that might have applied to mostly me. There's one in every class, right?
I've decided to reveal my class projects, though I must caution you: these are class projects, and therefore not all that great, though I did do some stuff crooked, just for old time's sake.
The first class was the Beginner one, and we made three cards. Here's the first one:
The second project:
And the third card from the beginner class:
After a lunch break, we had the Advanced class. Here's the first card from that session:
Here's one of the two other cards we made in the Advanced class:
And the third one:
Then I had 3 cookies for dinner, and that might explain some of the raucousness in the third session, which was Direct To Paper. Here is the first project we made:
This next one had most of us squee-ing at first, but the execution was ... not so much:
And the last one:
That's it. All said, it was a fantastic day, and I'm glad I had the opportunity to attend all three classes. I might have Brayerer's Wrist this morning, though. Will I ever use any of these techniques again? Probably. And as Michelle said, now, when we read the tutorials on her blog, they will make much more sense, and they will!
She also told us that while she won't be doing road trips after this year, she will still be blogging, probably more, and hopes to start doing videos. Now EVERYONE will be able to enjoy the lovely Michelle!
I ended my day with a trip over the Potomac by ferry, which I've never done at night before that I can recall. It was so beautiful.
Today, I think I'll take a hot bath to un-kink my back, then get stampy.
Thanks for stopping by!
