21 Secrets 2013

I decided to join 21 Secrets again this year because there was a lot of new artists that I hadn't heard of before. I still think this type of mixed workshop is the best way to test out an instructor's teaching method and find out whether it suits me.

The first lesson I did was  with Dion Dior and concentrated on adding sparkle to your pages. We used Twinkling H2Os, silks, glitter and various other supplies.

The first page is an abstract using all the supplies. 
  The next page was a simple flower image. 

 The last page was morning glories and spiders web, designed by Dion. The web really sparkles a lot.

The next lesson I did was with Tammy Garcia. It was a watercolour workshop and had a few exercises and a completed journal page. I had fun with this and although I have done some watercolour I still learned new things.

This lesson was about blending the colours. I loved the chance to play. 

This lesson was about adding words to the page. I did squash mine in a little, lol. I should have chosen a smaller quote. 

This bubble writing was fun to do. 


For my final page I chose to do a garden theme because I like drawing flowers. I really enjoyed this watercolour playground lesson.
