Art*Play Recap

Well, if you weren't at A Work of Heart in San Jose this weekend for Art*Play (and I know you weren't or I would have seen you there!), then you really missed out! Heather and Shosh (of Portals zine and Hannah Grey fame) planned an absolutely wonderful weekend for us! The event was so well-planned and filled with goodies. Our teacher was the wonderful Kelly Kilmer who is so enthusiastic, patient and positive.

On the first day, Kelly taught us how to make our very own painted taped journal. I couldn't believe how fun it was! We were all covered in paint and absolutely happy. In the afternoon, we started filling our new journals with different collage techniques that Kelly taught us. On the second day, we focused on learning new painting techniques. There were so many cool things to learn that my head was absolutely swimming!

The goodie bag sponsors packed our bags full of wonderful things. One of the best goodies bags I have ever gotten! I recognized many of the sponsors. I also won a lovely journal and a wax melting pot and ladle which I can't wait to try out. I'm bummed I didn't win Jenny and Aaron's wonderful painting but I'm sure there will be other opportunities in the future.

Thanks to the organizers, the sponsors and Kelly Kilmer for a wonderful weekend. I can't wait for the next one!!!
