Some Fun With Donna Downey

Hello friends!  I have some exciting new to share!  Donna Downey will be teaching in Charles City, Iowa…my old hometown..AND I’ll be taking all 3 of her classes on Friday and Saturday.  YIPEE! PLUS, I get to spend Friday morning with Mom and do a little thrifting, have lunch and then off to class!  So, you know I’ll be having a great time on Friday and Saturday!
Here’s the classes I’ll be taking.
Inspiration Journal
Friday, Sept. 9 · 1-4p
Insp Journey
Art journaling is a window into your creative soul. A place for you to experiment with different techniques, mediums and products. It should be treated as a "no fail zone" and be your safe place to play. Donna will be teaching image transfers, layering, "drippage", different mediums and how they work, and 3-D effects. Loads of information and creative play will happen in this class!
Butterfly Moments
Friday, Sept. 9 · 6-8p
Butterfly Mom
This 4x6 canvas album can be described in one word - "breathtaking". This project will have all your friends amazed at your overflowing talent! Layers of ruffles, trims, fabrics and flowers give this album the look and feel of shabby chic with a bold punch of color.
Saturday, Sept. 10
Complete an entire mixed media scrapbook in a day!! Your day will be filled with tons of product knowledge as well as new products to inspire your creativity and possibly challenge you to dream bigger about your creative possibilities.

Donna is a highly sought after artist and instructor that encourages creative play no matter your skill level or ability.
