Marah Johnson Class

My Book Club friend Sherry, hosted a class in her home, with Marah Johnson.  Marah taught us all kinds of cool things about Twinkling H2o’s LuminArte paints, which is a Creative Imaginations product.  Here’s a fun video!  Here’s a LuminArte blog.

We started with this adorable ATC.  The Twinkling H2O’s are rich and sparkly and luminescent.  The camera doesn’t show the true effect you get from these beautiful paints.

Did you know that Harlequin Romance novels are the way to go for great words?

Then we each received a piece of paper and a face…A beautiful face from a magazine.  We painted the background, the lips and eyes and whatever we wanted with the paints. 

We used Gorgeous butterflies to create hair or a hat in my case. And, Paint pens and markers to add further doodling.

I had so much fun with my first girl, and we had left over butterflies, so what could be better than making another girl in my journal.

I know, she’s practically exactly the same, but that’s what my journal is for…techniques and I didn’t want to forget this one.  I just enjoyed it so much.  I still need to add some journaling.
We played with the paints for hours non-stop!  Oh, we made a page of flowers.  Mine’s not finished yet.

Marah is a great teacher and very generous.  She brought lots of product for us to experiment and play with.  Look, I still have a butterfly to play with!  She also brought product to purchase, so of course, I went home with 3 pots of this gorgeous paint.  Can’t wait to get some more.

Paint It! with LuminArte, also by Creative Imaginations is one of the products that was created specifically for the Twinkling H2O’s.  They are die cut embellishments with lots of detail.  Add the paint in any color, over 150 colors if you add in the Silks etc., and you have a custom embellishment for your project. 

Sherry’s studio was the perfect place for this class.  All the ladies were lovely and talented!  I really had a fabulous time.  Yay!  Let’s do it again!
