Monday class with DJ

DJ is an amazing artist and teacher and the class on the Monday was thoroughly enjoyable. This is a different style for me, but have found it has opened up another avenue for creation and expression. I'm keen to practice more of DJ's style of painting and hope one day to be able to take more classes with her. Thank you DJ for your generosity and inspiration.

This painted girl was a different style to that shown on Sunday and involved a layered paper background on which to paint on first in a painterly effect. This was mounted to an old book cover that I covered with various pieces of fabric and lace, then glued to another book cover belonging to a 1963 Atlas. The black lace was a scrap I bought from my Aunt a week earlier while at her garage sale. The three crochet flowers were from one of her hankerchiefs I also purchased and cut up.
