journal workshop day 1

Today was the first day of the art journal workshop with Ailie Snow. We met yesterday evening for a first to know each other and look at her own samples. Today it was hands on and it was not what I expected. For some reason, I guess because it was organized by Creative Fibres I thought it would have more to do with fibre and also Ailie is a great textile artist. But it was more an art lesson, watercolour washes, gesso to give texture, stamping, stencelling, collage and finally add some text.

It was an interesting day, as I said not what I expected, but not disappointing at all. Tomorrow we are supposed to do some sort of self portrait in collage style like the hand.
