Fabulous "Making Memories Workshop"

 Hello Friends, We had a fun, wonderful workshop for a group of ladies here in Salem, Va. yesterday, that was Saturday(sometimes Blogger doesn't publish posts until next day so I didn't want to confuse you.
 The workshop was held at Bonnie's house, she has a huge dining room as you can see.  All 5 ladies showed up with photos and plans and memories and ready to get it all down.  They all completed their artwork and varnished it before they left !  They were a great group to work with.
It helps so much to have an idea of what you would like to see on your canvas before hand.  We don't mean every detail because you have to be flexible with collage.
 The two photos above are a good example.  She had great copies of her photos to work on and was flexible about what to put where and the patterned papers.  Her finish was really good, I don't know why I don't have a photo of that.

 This was a sweet sentiment.  She gathered several photos from their wedding and announcements.
 This was the most adorable of the little rubber boots and it came together so well.
 See the boot photo along with the babes.  That's Judy's hands helping mix a color to soften photo edges.  They used a stencil in the middle.  Looked great.
This lady brought in photos of her new baby born at home and I think her first child.  This came together really well too.
This sweet lady brought in military photos and copies of his medals to put on the canvas, so she could keep the real thing safely hidden away.  This is not a good photo, because when she varnished the final piece the sheen was more even.  There was not any shiny glares as in my photo.

We all had a great time, enjoyed the company and shared refreshments before closing up.                   We (the DLP's) would love to help you put together a workshop of your own.
There are a couple of options, not just Memory Collages.  We are always coming up with new techniques and interests.  These workshops are very affordable and a great way for a group of friends to share time with each other.
Shoot us an email anytime you would like more information.  And go to our new website,  DLP.FineArt (sorry folks, blogger is being cantankerous tonight-you will need to click on the HiLighted link below) to sign up for our newsletter.  There will be new info on workshops scheduled at various facilities in our area.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Trails DLP.FineArt
