It was a week filled with nature, kids, fun and relaxation. A week to recharge and be inspired by my surroundings. I love the area, the sunsets, the landscapes, the mix of rocks, water and trees. Pure heaven in my opinion.
I also had the opportunity to take in a watercolour and wool workshop, offered by a very talented artist, Pam. Pam owns and operates the Morgan House Bed & Breakfast and Woolworks. Pam raises her own sheep, shears them and then dies the wool. My friend and I created a "watercolour" canvas using wool. It was such a relaxing, remarkable morning. Up in an old barn studio, surrounded by every shade of wool imaginable, letting the canvas take shape as it will; here is my creation:
You can click on the picture and see that everything is died wool, we created the background first, then added layers on top. I choose to do a landscape, my friend an abstract. I cannot wait to try to incorporate some of the techniques I learned up in that barn studio into my scrapbooking and altered art/mixed media designs.
So, tell us where you draw YOUR inspiration from!!
