#Cre8time Road Tripping...

Greetings Friends! Hope you are having a fantastic Monday. I just wanted to share a bit from my weekend artsy field trip... and to let you know that the "ANYTHING GOES" challenge at Anything But a Card Challenges has been extended until midnight August 1st, 2015.

The Challenge is OPEN - Anything But a Card Challenges No. 49 is ANYTHING GOES. Share you're creations, whatever it may be... scrapbooking, collage, ATCs, tags, art journal pages, altered shrines... whatever tickles your muse and her fancy!

Over the weekend I took a Cre8time road trip up to a magical place called Art More Place in Melbourne, FL to attend a workshop from the super fantastic Cat Kerr. This is the second workshop I've taken with her learning to make charmed soldered whimsies. If you missed out and would like to take a class from her she will be having another workshop there real soon {CLICK HERE for event listings}. Last month I traveled up to Art More Place for two days of painting "Funky Little Houses" with Jodi Ohl.

Soldering is new to me and I think it's beginning to grow on me. It requires patience, attention to detail and leaves you living on the edge of your seat awaiting the end result. With the excitement of a kid on Christmas morning, I am ready for a day of learning and creating with abandon - stocked with healthy snacks and a jumbo homemade smoothie.

I brief message came across social media the night before instructing us to bring any photos, charms or other misc personal ephemera we would like to use in our pendants - I filled my scrapbook roll-a-round. In my stash I selected items to pair with a supplied stamped mermaid to make a seaside pendant; and an assortment of christmas theme/colored items for a holiday vignette. The time invested in learning new media always gives my muse a giant shot of vitamin "C".
