Abstract Art Workshop

 So after much push from friends I am hosting my 1st workshop. As the name says it is about Art... Abstract Art.

I love color (am sure you all know that by now), recycled materials, anyhting creative and unique and most of all I love Inspiring people to be more creative and to think outside the box.

In this workshop I plan to teach a little bit about abstract art, composition and color combinations. I want to share what my Art and drawing teacher taught me when I was in college "TO SEE".
To look at everyday things around us and find color combinations and compositions. To see the beauty that surrounds us. And use that beauty and the color schemes in nature that we get inspired by and make a unique piece of Art.

Last year I shared a painting with you in my blog post 'Color Therapy'. This painting was painted on a reclaimed piece of MDF that has a pattern engraved on it. This workshop will use a similar piece of reclaimed MDF and turn it into a Unique and One of a kind Work of ART.

I am very excited about the workshop (well and nervous too)... If you live in and around Atlanta and want to attend this workshop then email me at divissketchbook(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thank you all my friends, family and blog readers for Inspring me to host this workshop. I promise there will be lot more coming up.

Love you all.

Creative Gift Tags

After buying a tons of Art supplies from Art Store or Stampin Up I am always trying to come up with projects where I can use them (I know a difficult task right, it is or me). I have recently invested (at least that's what I like to think) in tons of new art supplies.


Various stamps.. etc etc..
We all add Thank you cards or Gift tags to Party Favors right, so why not make them ourselves?
Here is what I did for my daughter's birthday party favors. I made some simple and easy Gift tags. I used several punches to punch out different shapes in various colored cardstock. Then mixed all the colored punch outs to make unique birds and glued them to the wrapped gifts. VERY VERY EASY, but unique.
I hope you will try it out something like this soon.
Here are some of my recommendations if you would like to buy some supplies.
