What a great time we had for my first In-Studio Class!  It was great having all my creative tools at our fingertips to play with and just create freely.  I love to create and even more I love to share that. 

First it was all about creating the Art Journal……..

Then it was all about creating and creating "out of the box" for Cindy and Gail.  I loved pulling out new mediums, paints, inks, and of course Helmar glues for them to try and play with. 

They were into it and it was fun to see what they created!


"I attended the June Studio Class in Tracy's studio and it was fabulous. Very hands on with lots of individual as well as group instruction. I am a very "in the box" kind of crafter and Tracy helped me see that I was a little more capable and creative than I though I was. She has every tool and supply imaginable so all you have to do is show up. Have to say that is was very satisfying going into the studio empty-handed and walking away with a book that I was very proud of. Thanks Tracy, I will be back." ~Cindy

I too decided to pull out a page and do one myself. 

I will be showing this page in detail tomorrow!

Being in my studio was absolutely perfect.  I could reach for anything we needed to create with and we had a very creative time.  Seeing people try something out of their creative zone is a lot of fun for me.  I always say that what I create is simple and anyone can do it.  It is just a matter of taking the layers step-by-step. 

Now that their first pages are done and I tasked them to "Do something Creative every day!"  Thanks guys for joining me.  Lots of inquiries about the July class and that one is being planned as we speak!

Now for some other big news.  I had lots of requests to teach this same journal online with a kit.  I have been wanting to do a night of art online via Ustream with you guys and I appreciate the push to do this!  So stay tuned on how to purchase the kit and the class details!  It will be an online Studio Class where we create together!  Creating and sharing it are my two great loves so what a great way to do this!

Hope everyone has a great week!
