Art 2 Heart Update

I realized that after my first enthusiastic post, I haven’t blogged anymore about my experience with Wilna Furstenberg’s year-long Art 2 Heart workshop. But my enthusiasm hasn’t waned in the least! So it’s time to show a couple more pages I’ve made since.

The first two are directly lifted from Wilna’s pages from October. This first one is definitely one of the favorite pages I’ve ever made.

The printables also come with the workshop.

Apart from the visual aspect of the class (lots of eye candy!), my favorite thing about this workshop is that it makes me reflect upon the small and big things in my life. Maybe saying it’s life-changing is a bit much, but it’s certainly inspired me to give deeper thought to some things that I’d otherwise not have thought about. Every single month.

This page was also a really fun one to make. Wilna gave us the printout of her floral+writing combination, and I traced it with watercolors.

I have slowed down a bit in creating, and made only one page inspired by the November workshop:

This page has been a work in progress for a long time. I painted the background back in November, but then it just sat there, waiting for a good theme for the page.

I used some copper mist from Studio Calico to add some shine to the page. I also used it on top of the wood letters, though it’s hard to tell from the photo.

To embellish the page, I used some very old embellishments from my stash (Dear Lizzy) along with some bits and pieces from the Canyonlands scrapbook kit and Redstone embellishment kit from Studio Calico.

And that’s all I’ve made so far from the workshop. I have a page in the works inspired by the January content, so be on the lookout for that soon. 🙂
