Jump Into January Workshop Part 1

Jump Into January, 2018 workshop session - students and the instructor #tracylake #jumpintojanuary
 I have been out of town for the past several days to 
attend a workshop called 
Jump Into January!
The workshop is hosted and taught by Elaine Huffman. 
Our first class was taught by Tracy Lake - 
that's her above showing us what to do.
(That is Elaine to my left with the white apron.)

 My first attempt was with circles.
I really love the contrast you get by placing the round 
white sections against the black backdrop.
Really fun project and I love how it turned out!

 Not really feeling the diamonds, which is why
I included part of a star in a couple places.
Hahaha!
heart shapes on black background #jumpintojanuary #tangleu
 These hearts I really love!
We used various mark making techniques,
I bet you can recognize one for sure!
Not really going to explain these steps
since they were part of a paid workshop.

And I was happy with the way the stars worked!

In fact, this project was enjoyable enough that I made a two page spread in the art journal I took with me. I will probably add more to these when I have time, but for now I am calling them done. 

Great workshop held in Massachusetts!
More photos of art tomorrow. 
I'd love to hear your comments and ideas.

  1. Interesting seeing how the black background really makes the shapes jump off the page when you embellish them with white - took me a few seconds to work it out but I love the alphabet bordering - striking & giving such variation whilst essentially just adding the same thing over & over.

    1. Yes, that alphabet scribble is an awesome technique!
