Donna Downey - last weekend!

Donna Downey creates with mixed media - including fabric, canvas, oil pastels that are water-soluable, watercolour paint, acrylic paint and a ton more. The information in Italics is from Donna's website.

First, we made 3 10x10 canvas swatches in framed loops...

In this 4-hour workshop we will create three individual 10” framed canvas Swatch art pieces utilizing more than a dozen art mediums, techniques and tools. As we create each canvas we will build upon layers of technique and applications, introducing new ideas that will open up multiple creative possibilities for layering and texturizing your art.
Next, we made an 8 page, 6x12 mixed-media, fabric and paper hybrid album.

Nothing makes me happier than a scrapbook bursting at the seams with creative bits of paper, fabrics, ribbons and photos...that is unless it incorporates cardboard, stamping, acrylic and transparencies too! This album is an over the top mixed-media experience blending traditional scrapbooking products in uncoventional ways that results in a collected scrapbook of memories that is artistic, personal and rich with vibrant color.
On Sunday, we designed an 8 page, 6x6 acrylic and chipboard album.

Mix and match sizes, shapes, textures, colors, and mediums to create a bold and beautiful hand-painted and collaged mixed media scrapbook. As you experiment with color, each page will be immediately transformed into mini-masterpieces individually colored and designed by you. You will explore new techniques for using watercolor crayons, layering and collage for acrylic album pages, as well as, paint and doodling tips for taking your creative scrapbooking to the next level.

Some pictures of us..
