Stepping Into Unknown Territory

Well, I have taken the plunge. I promised myself I would sign up for an on-line class in 2009 & I finally did it. It took me until 12-30-09 to do this but I did it.
I am taking a collage class with KC Willis of & it is working with fabrics & apparently some sewing. That's a place I thought I would NEVER go. I really don't like sewing but I've seen so many gorgeous collages come out of KC's classes that I had to give it a shot. After all, I can't keep bleaching photographs forever, even though I love doing them. This will be very cool to try a new process & I am quite pleased with myself that I took the jump. Check out KC's site, you will love it!

GOOD FOR YOU Diane! You will love trying out something new. I actually just signed up for a photoshop class that Marilyn Gallas (Studio 274?) told me about.

We will both have lots to share.

Marilyn said...

Good for you! Sharon and I are both taking DJ Pettit's class. It will be a stretch for me.

Oh boy!
I can't wait to hear about all the NEW stuff that you will be learning to do.
You are BRAVE to take a class- good for YOU.
I took a class once, and it excited me. I know this will excite you too.
Can't wait for the magic to start happening!
When is the first day of school?

I have enjoyed KC's workshops very much. The videos are the best I've seen around! I've done "the Camp" and the Mixed Media Mania. Both are exceptional.

That's awesome! I did the same thing and signed up for two journaling classes at Art and Soul - lots of watercolor and such. I have NO background in anything like it!

Have fun!
