One of my favorite things to do is to get lost in my studio and just create.  Two Saturday's ago gave me such an opportunity and in the last copule of weekends I have gotten on Ustream LIVE on Twstudios Channel to just create with my like-minded friends.  We have been just having some free flowing art time throwing out ideas and challenging one another.  They are last minute meet-ups that have had some of the most creative outcomes. 

That Saturday we did just that.  I did not record it but we just flowed with the ideas and my biggest canvas to date was born…11" X 17":

I was inspired to do a Tea one from my friend Lizzie and I accepted the challenge.  What a fun project this was and I did get lost in it.

What I loved was the details of this layout and the teapot & teacups by Fabscraps!

I worked with colors I am not necessarily accostumed to and loved all the creative talk.  It was a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday.  Thanks to everyone who joined me.  Stay tuned as we will do it again.  I will announce it on my Facebook Page when I get time….dress is informal and a sense of humor is a must!
