|Judy Shea, Me and Marjie Kemper at Art is You|
One of the joyful things about Art is You is the community of women creating, sharing, and socializing together. Highlights of my non-teaching time included making flags with Kecia Deveney and Linda Willis. Here are some of the panels - you will definitely be seeing more stitching and stenciling from me! I loved that I could create my own fabric designs using my stencils from Stencil Girl!
Taking Marjie Kemper's awesome art journaling class was another highlight. Marjie and I both work in art journals, but have different approaches and "go to" supplies. I loved stepping into her world of inks, embossing folders, dyes, and her extensive wash tape collection! Marjie is a very organized and knowledgeable teacher. She's teaching in November at The Ink Pad in NYC, and has lots of dates scheduled for 2015 as well.
Here are her gorgeous demo pages:

Here we are hard at work and showing off our pages. There was a lot of laughter in the room! (Pictures "nicked" from Marjie's site!)
Here's one of the pages I made, inspired by what we worked on in Marjie's class:
The words are from a stamp from Technique Junkies quoting poet Mary Oliver.
Even the staff of the Sheraton Hotel got into the act, wearing pink for a day devoted to Breast Cancer awareness.
Who are your creativity peeps? If you don't have one yet, find a community of like-minded souls with whom to create. It makes art all the more fun!
