What A Class

Top of the Week To Everyone!!!

What a way to end last week--with a Michelle Zindorf brayer class and what a way to begin a new week--with inspiration and obtainable brayer expectations---that is, after taking Michelle's class. I left Rockville, MD empowered. It appeared as though the time spent in class flew by. Three hours came and went. I guess that's what happens when you're having a good time. There were introductions and some instructions. Then there was the first card, then the second card, before you knew it, we were putting the finishing touches on our third card and bidding our fond farewells to Michelle and our host, Cathi. Most of us were ready to return home to begin to put our newly developed skills into action.

Below are the cards I completed in class. The first did not come out as well as some other folkes in the class, but that isn't in reflextion on the instructor. I applied the various shades of blue in the wrong, order as a result, it effected look of my sky.

The shades of blue and the wolf itself brought a masculine feel to the next card. That's probably why this card was both my dad's and my son's favorite. I already hav an idea of what their birthday cards will look like.

Befitting for the occasion, the last card was a sunset card. This was my mother's favorite. She's prone to the earth tone colors. I love sunsets, so I couldn't help but to love this card.

I can't wait for you to see the types of sunsets and sunrises I have created with my purple sunsets, but first things first. Early this morning, I made the two cards below before leaving for church.

Whooa! Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.

Fun to see your pictures, Lorie! It was a great class. I learned so much just in the first 15 minutes! Hope I can attend Michelle's advanced brayer workshop some day...

Michelle Zindorf is a genius! I have been reading her blog for years and she is the one who sparked the "emboss-resist bug" within me! All of your workshop cards are gorgeous, so impressive! And I just think you are on one of those intense summer days with your blue sky on the first card!!
