GPP Street Team.
This month’s challenge was to cut out some stencils. I was hoping to cut some new ones but the month has flown by. So I am showing some old pages from my journals that feature a favourite stencil of mine.
On a more important note, I got to meet Michelle Ward who runs the GPP street team this weekend in Muscoda Wisconsin where she taught a workshop at the delightful Valley Ridge Art Studio. Can I just say that this was an adventure for me. I am a city gal and this place is way out in farmland. I was enthralled by the beauty of the surroundings; the utter quiet away from the city. The host and hostess Bill and Kathy Malkasian are absolutely delightful people and so gracious. They catered to our every whim and I had a blast. Michelle absolutely ROCKS and it was such a pleasure filled weekend. She is so down to earth and so enthusiastic in sharing her fabulous art and teaching some of her awesome techniques. Spray painting could not have been more of a heady pleasure; watching the queen in action was just awesome!!! I would do it over again and again it was so much fun. If you are searching for an intimate way of taking classes where you can absolutely immerse yourself in your art in such beautiful surroundings Valley Ridge is the place to go. You will not be disappointed. I will post some pics later….. the school run beckons. Talk about back to earth with a thud.
