Artisan's Daybook

Thursday, May 5, 2016

Deryn Boyd Mentock has once again provided a wonderful online class called Artisan's Daybook!  Having passed this class by the first time Deryn offered it, I decided that I just needed to take this class when she offered it again.

Full of techniques like collage, creating resin flowers and leaves, sewing on paper, embellishing covers from books, altering cabinet cards, image transfers, photo transfers and much much more.  I learned about the different mediums to use for watercolors, transfers, and acrylics. Embellishing our journals with fabrics, laces, and trims was my undoing.....

I'm TOTALLY hooked!!!

My first journal became my reference of the techniques and ideas that Deryn shared in her online class....successes and failures alike.  I've already started my second journal and hope to create many more.

Until then............start your own art journal!

Blooming Bangles, Deryn Mentock's online class was full of techniques and wonderful ideas for creating bangles.  Here's my spin on the class....I took three bangles and did some wire weaving to bring them all together in one bracelet.  One has the bloom on it and the other I embellished with bone and pearl beads. I highly recommend her online classes if you aren't able to take a class in person with Deryn. 

Until creative!
