Donna Downey Is In The House!!!

This weekend I had the privilege of taking one of Donna Downey's INCREDIBLE workshops at The Scrapbook Junkie. It was the Fabric Scrapbooking Workshop and I gotta tell you it was AWESOME!!! The class ran from 10AM to about 3:30PM and it filled with lots of cool art techniques. We got to play with delicious things like, acrylic paints, modeling paste, water color, wire, gel medium and the list goes on and on. I have never taken a workshop filled with as much wonderful techniques as this. I learned a ton and was so inspired. I just love the way Donna incorporates scrapping into traditional artist mediums. Just what I needed at this time in my artistic journey.

On top of being incredibly talented, Donna was also incredibly genuine, sweet and personable. She is an excellent teacher and demonstrates the techniques in a hands-on way. Without skipping a beat, she made everyone feel comfortable and totally capable of each and every challenge. If you ever have an opportunity to take one of her workshops I highly recommend it. This was one I will NEVER FORGET. Thanks Donna for and INCREDIBLE class and Thanks Beth for bringing her to the Junkie! I will be posting pictures of my finished canvas album soon so stay tuned!

I'm SO jealous! I'd planned on taking one as a b-day gift to myself but just couldn't fit it in to my weekend :( Can't wait to see what you made!
