This year's off to a REALLY good start!

So, I told you a while back that I was taking classes at Inzpira, right?
Well, the mixed media class made me want to take MORE classes and I started looking at Christy Tomlinson's classes online. I made up my mind and decided that SheArt would be MY X-mas gift to me (or rather my New Years gift to my mojo...) and so I registered and started watching it yesterday.

SUCH a fun class, and I am SO happy that I had taken the one at Inzpira previously because I had NO troubles keeping up. Now, Christy's classes ARE easy, I'm not saying it's hard to keep up but I know myself and have a tendency to give up if I don't "get" stuff right away so even if Christy is a great teacher - which she is - I'm afraid I'd have been frustrated because everything looks so good and I'd be scared that I couldn't "do that".

I let go of that fear and just jumped right in.

This is my first canvas. I'm very happy with it, actually! I "invented" the quote myself (can you call it a quote if you're not quoting anyone or is that just a sentiment...?) and just went crazy with stamps, stencils, paint, ink, papers and a whole lot of mod podge and gesso...





Ps. Her hair isn't as weird as it looks, it's just shiny. Sorry about that.

Now, I'm just counting down the hours until DH comes home from shopping after work, because I've sent him to get me more canvases. I have a feeling I'll be needing QUITE a lot of them for quite some time, now...!

Best bit? Christy had a giveaway in her blog the day before yesterday, giving a spot on *this class by Jeanie Oliver*. I just knew that I had to take it. HAD TO.
Guess who WON that spot?
I did!!
*squeals in a very undignified and giggleridden way*

I can NOT even begin to tell you how inspired, happy and excited I am right now.
Christy - my mojo LOVES you!
