Deer Mixed Media – Birthday Workshop

Just a wee post to share a pretty cool deer mixed media piece that was done last week at a birthday workshop.  It was a small group of artsy ladies who seemed to know the guest of honour Alysha (in white) quite well.  They all played it safe and stuck to her colour palette.  Here they are hard at work. - The pics were taken with my phone as my camera battery died :(

Having a bit of a laugh.  Love it when everyone is having fun as that is the whole point to these workshops as far as I am concerned.  To relax and forget about everything for just a little while.  Restorative time if you will.

Here is the gorgeous piece all done.  As the group was small they got to see some of the finishing touches right at the class.  Sorry the picture is so fuzzy.

Isn’t the background awesome?  It is canvas covered with a scrunched up patterned tissue paper that I rubbed paint over once it dried.  They added birds and all kinds of stuff to the antlers which is what I was hoping for.  Totally cute.

I brought my awesome Pennants Builder Punch from Stampin Up! and two of the girls collaborated to create the title with it which ran along the bottom.

They called it “Wild Life”, not sure if they were implying that Alysha is a bit of a party girl or just to the animals but it is nice to keep people guessing ;)
