OverEmotional Canvas Class with Anna Dabrowska at Whim So Doodle

 It was a wonderful day!! Spending the day with Maria and Anna could not have been any more creative!! When Maria and I heard Anna was coming to our favorite Scrapbook store,  WhimSoDoodle., and we found out which classes were being offered, we weren't disappointed, but we wanted OverEmotional!!! So I chatted with Anna to see if she would do this class instead, and she told me it was up to the store owner. So I emailed Jill (the owner) and told Maria to do the same, and together we got the class changed!!!!Thank you Anna for being so flexible!!! And thank you Jill for listening to the NEEDS  WANTS sorry,WISHES of the customer!!!
Here is my double Canvas, which I titled, Collect Moments.  I chose to connect my canvas to make it one.

Using lots of Primas  Mechanicals, art mediums, and stamps that Anna designed.

Bits of lace and canvas strips on the canvas for texture.

Prima Flowers can never escape any of my projects!!

Each different cluster is like a work of art on its own.

Layering the Mechanicals gives you different designs. oops, I just noticed one of my small roses popped off. Must be in my

The flowers Mechanicals have got to be my favorite!! Yes, I left the store with a few more packs.

Drips of hot glue that I first learned to do from Vivian Sung Soon Keh-Hue. 

My dear friend Maria working on her fabulous canvas!! Yes, we were partners in crime when shopping afterwards. Maria would ask "Do I need this??"..."Yes Maria, you need it. Just throw it in your basket"! sssshhhhhh.....

Anna telling us to stand back from your work to check your composition. NOT to work this close!!

 Anna, showing us the finer details on how it is done.

Here is our group shot. It was amazing to see the diffent designs and colors that each artist produced. Each very unique and beautiful!!

When class was over, Maria and I ventured over to Mazzaros Italian Market, for the panini of the day!!! Yum!!! The Italian Caprese!! While in St.Pete, you must EAT!!!  Just love visiting downtown St.Petersberg!!
