More She Art, NYC, and Facebook

Having  more  fun  with  another  She  Art  girl--can  you  guess  the  theme?  ; )


Here--I'll  give  you  a  hint--




I  am  having  so  much  fun  "hanging  out"  with  Christy.   Remember  when  you  were  in  high  school  and  there  was  always  the  fun  cool  teacher  that  everyone  liked?   Well,  she's  that  one.   When  she  films  these  videos,  she  has  no  idea  how  her  piece is  going  to  end  up--only  that  she  wants  to  show  us  every  technique  possible.   So  she  has  all   these  different  things  in  front  of   her  and  sometimes  she  gets  a  little  confused  on  what  to  use.   So  my  favorite  part  is  when  she  asks  us  what  we  think....and  I  always  answer  her  right  back...out  loud.   Hey,  you  never  know, maybe  she  hears  me.

And  this  week  she's  added  scenes  with  the  girls,  plus  more  details  with  their  outfits.   I  did  the  first  one  which  is  a  dress  with  pleats--


There's  lots  of  layers  in  the  skirt  part--very  fun.   I  want  to  try  the  next  one  she  shows  us,  because  that  one's  really  cool!   So  there's  only  one  more  week  left--I'll    be  sad  when  this  class is  over,  but  very  happy  from  what  I've  learned.   And  I  have  to  tell  you  if  you  take  this  class  in  April,  be  prepared  to  make  a  mess---I  mean---a  real  mess.  When  you  work  in  her  mode,  everything  is  very  quick--no  time  to  over-analyze  anything,  which  is  a  good  thing.    I  always  make  a  mess,  but  it  was  so  bad,  that  I  had  to  stop  mid-way  to  clean  up--glue  and  paint  EVERYWHERE!   And  I  STILL  can't  find  my  black  Staz-on  ink  pad.  I  think  I  threw  it  out  with  all  of  the  mess.   I  guess  I'm  going  to  have  to  get  another  one--I  use  it  constantly.

Next  week's  lesson  will  have  to  be  put  on  hold  though,  because  we're  off  to  New  York  City  to  visit  our  son  Nick!    He  teaches  at  a  college  in  New  Jersey,  and  next  week  is  Spring  break.   He  likes  to  do  it  the  other  way  around.   He  lives  in  Manhattan  and  commutes  to  his  work  in  New  Jersey.   When  we  were  there  last  summer,  one  of  the  highlights  of  our  trip  was  seeing  the  David  Letterman  show,   and  guess  where  we're  going  again  on  Monday!!   When  you  apply  for  these  tickets  online  months  prior,  you  have  no  idea  if  you  can  get  tickets  or  not.  Well  they  just  called  us  today--Yay!!

Okay  and  more  thing--Facebook.   I've  been  on  Facebook  for  a  couple  of  years  now,  but  not  very  active  with  it.   Well  I  just  started  a  new  artist  page  there!   I'm  planning  on  putting  things  on  there  that  won't  be  on   my  blog--so  head  on  over  to  my  page  and  if  you  "like"  it  then  just  click  "like"  : )

I sort of feel like I just talked to you on the phone, such an interesting post and so much to see and hear about, Bob is getting better, bless his little dog heart.
Your tulips in previous post are just so beautiful, and I am so in the mood for flowers and some spring.

You have not been just twiddleing your thumbs you hae been so busy and productive plus learning things that are interesting.

Wishing you fun in New York, I know you take great photos of your experiences also.

Beautiful sunflower girl Diane!

Have fun in the big NYC...I'm soooo jealous!

Janet Ghio said...

Christy's class is so much fun. I am loving it. Your new girl is very cool. I finished my second girl-this one without a face! Don't put too much on facebook that you don't put here--I spend enough time on the computer without running around facebook to. I have a page, but rarely ever go to it. Did you see Survivor???? BOO HOO!!

Createology said...

I am enchanted with this She Art. Your sunflower theme and doll are beautiful. Safe Travels...

Have fun in your trip to New York!

kluless said...

Love your new FB page and "like" it too - he he! Did you create a FB Fan page in addition to your personal page or covert it or what? I have a personal page and have been trying to figure out if I should switch it to fan page. Glad you're having so much fun with the class. The results are wonderful!!

Oh how FUN she is! I'm half way done with my commission piece, so I'll be able to make my She Art girls soon. Christy does have a very fun and easy style. :) Have fun visiting your son in NYC. And I fanned your new FB page - congrats on creating one! Theresa

Pretty piece of art you made there! I hope you have a lot of fun in New York and especially at the Letterman show :) Very exciting! Also, you asked on my post where I got the rub-ons that I used in my art video. I got them at Michaels in the dollar bin last summer :) I hope they have some where you are so that you can get them too. I love them. Take care and have fun!
