Back from Journalfest

I am finally unpacked from our trip to Seattle and Port Townsend. We spent 2 days in Seattle. We ate some amazing  food - new favorites are  Flying Fish and Crow. Both meals were unforgettable. We walked everywhere and saw the Picasso exhibit at the SAM. I had to laugh when I looked at the pictures I took....a little like "wierd" Seattle.

This was a window display. The reflection on the glass made it ghost - like.


A haunt...
We travelled to Port Townsend with a mandatory stop at the Steamliner Diner in Bainbridge, for their famous buttermilk biscuits. Journalfest was great. I love the smaller groups, classes and relaxed atmosphere. I had Julianna Coles for the first day. She is an energetic teacher and really encouraged us to be more brave,take risks with our journal pages. Here are a couple paged I worked on...
This was a cool technique using carbon paper - do they still make it??

A warm-up

A drawing of Judy Wise drawing me....
I spent the next 2 days with Carla Sonheim. What a wonderful experience. She is so relaxed and has so much to share as a teacher. Here are a few of the pages I did....
I love the conte crayon as a drawing tool. This was a drawing made better with gesso and collage.
My "one liner" lion

My Picasso Dog - he looks a lot like my dog Max...All together a great experience, well worth the effort to attend.
