Artfest-Day 3

On day 3 I took Freshly Renovated with Misty Mawn. We made small sized mixed media pieces that will then get bound into a little book/journal. The idea was to start with a base layer of collage that we then work back into with paint, stencils, stamps, crayons, etc. Misty showed us how to paint faces, along with so many other techniques that I can barely remember at the moment. It was amazing watching her demo, she worked so fast and could pull together a pice in minutes. I know the speed was for the sake of the demo, but still! Once again, I feel I really learned something that can take my journal pages/work to the next level. I love the idea of reclaiming an image and making it truly my own.


  1. Hi Jessie,
    I was going through my trades and I came across your creative card. I wanted to drop you a note and say thank you, and see what you are up too. Your work is great. I loved reading about your experiences at Artfest. I took a class from Jesse too, so it was interesting to hear your thoughts on it. I really enjoyed his class - what an experience. It was nice to see what you created.
    Thanks again.
