More 21 secrets

I took Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's watercolor class at 21 Secrets. This is my creation. It's all watercolors. The stencil with watercolors was a new technique for me. I love the way the flowers are on her face.

Inky tags

I got inspired by Roben Marie Smith's tutorial on tags. I cut my own tags out of watercolor paper I had. They are embellished with yarn and rub ons for the lettering.

I might add some sewing to them too. Fun!

21 Secrets

I started a new online class called 21 Secrets, its 21 classes that you can take anytime from now until the end of the year.

The first class I dove into was Dina Wakely's Intuitive Painted Layers. Here's my attempt:

It was fun and gave me some new ideas to try, especially if I get stuck and don't know where to start.

I'm using exsisting Art Journals that I've started since I have so many. Maybe one will get filled up! I don't know what that means, maybe that you get to start another one. Anyways, I'm hoping to learn some new techniques and just play. My friends from Journalfest are playing with me so that will be fun to see what they do too! Stay tuned for more from 21 Secrets!
