One of my favorite lines is, "I was just sitting there minding my own business." And that is what Jeane and I were sort of doing last summer when we stumbled across a copy of Canvas Remix, written by Alisa Burke. We were on a trip to visit my art daughter, aka Jeane's art sister, Kelly. And there it was. Jeane called it first, so she brought it home. I have since bought and paid for my own copy, one thing has led to another, and now Jeane and I are taking a class called Graffiti Chic online with Alisa. I am pretty sure that I am old enough to be Alisa's mom or at least her aunt, so I hope I can get away with saying that everything about her is just stinkin' cute, and her artwork, well that is amazing and other words Webster hasn't had time to come up with yet. Anyway, it is a five week class which you could still join, too, and these are my results so far for week one/backgrounds, even though we are now on week two/stencils. I am running a bit behind due to Miss O. and Miss Q. (See photo below.), and I couldn't be happier to use that "being a Nona" excuse. Staying up until almost 2am helped me catch up most of the way on week one, and I hope to do more on week two soon. Until then, these photos show how far I have gotten.
