The Artifact Class with Finnabair
It's always exciting when you meet someone you admire for the first time. Well let me say that if you ever have the opportunity to take one of Finnabair's classes do it. She's an amazing teacher and inspires your personal style to shine!
I attended The Artifact and Time Capsule classes at Donna Downey's Studio in Huntersville, North Carolina. So I not only met Anna but Donna and her husband Bill as well. The energy in that studio was phenomenal and I ended up signing up for two more events next year. ;) Guess I'm into live classes now!
So on to the first class which was The Artifact. If you click the link you can see Finnabair's original on her blog. It goes without saying that blog photos do not do it justice.
Our classroom with all of us hard at work, except me as I'm taking the photo. ;)
We created three 9x12 canvases using products from Finn's mixed media and Mechanicals line of products. All of the supplies were included with the class cost and they were not stingy. :)
I love the look of her metallic products so I featured them on my project.
Mechanical elements on display :)
Texture everywhere :)
Prima Junkyard Findings were embedded into my favorite product of this class -
this stuff is grand and the texture is freaking amazing.
Mica flakes, micro beads and glass beads from Finn's Art Ingredients line :)
The lace peeking out makes me a happy girl!
Who knew inexpensive brushes could look so good?
Love the look of the 12x12 Harlequin stencil in the background.
After a day of creating masterpieces Anna gathered us for a group photo.

I'll post my second project on Friday and I can't wait to share what my favorite product for that class was. One word - magic. :)
For those of you waiting on this post I apologize for the delay. A family friend was in a serious accident yesterday and everything was pushed aside until we knew he was okay. He narrowly survived it but thankfully he did and hopefully will make a full recovery. I know that his family would appreciate you remembering him, Brian B., in your prayers. Thanks so much!
