Be Gentle2

BE GENTLE ON YOURSELF – Sunday, 6/30/2019 from 11AM to 1PM  $30

Our shoppe friend, Sue, has coordinated a few of her friends to join us this Sunday for this awesome project. We have room, so we thought we would open it to the public. So, please join us for this really awesome collage mixed media project.  It has taken me a long time to learn to actually be “gentle on myself”, and this project is the perfect piece to remind myself. I want YOU to remind YOURSELF! So, join me as we do this REALLY cool collaged piece with decorative napkins, tissues, textured paint and quotes. I think you are going to love it (done on a 9″x12″ canvas.) If you happened to do the “I am enough” class last year, this is a great piece to accompany that one! Join us! (and please remember – you can always customize the colors, faces and quotes used.) $30 workshop fee, includes all supplies and instructions*. Call 815-905-3068 to register!
