Tonight (Tuesday) was a special one for me. I'm unable to take Lisa Lee's Kumomi™ class this Sunday at Art 'n Soul, so I drove to Seattle to take it. If you're not signed up yet for Lisa's class, you'll want to sign up as soon as possible. If you're already signed up, prepare yourself for a totally 'zen' experience.

Sunday, Sept. 28, 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m., KUMOMI™ – A NEW CREATIVE TECHNIQUE  
Lisa Lee of Inchie Arts $28

Kumomi™ is a creative process combining randomness of spontaneous painting with the control of meditative drawing created by Karen Elaine Parsons of Splash Inks. The entire point of learning this technique is to experience mind and body relaxation through the action of being creative. Create a series of tiles using 4” Art Squares, Splash Inks and black pen as you find meaning in the randomness of your brush strokes.

These are samplings of what was started and in progress on 4-inch Art Squares from Inchie Arts . . .

This was before Trish recognized a fish
and a cat hidden, waiting to be revealed.
This was after Trish found the fish
and cat . . . makes you wonder what
else might be lurking waiting to be discovered!

This is what 
awaits discovery.
Open your mind. If you like the random application of color and the zen of doodling, this is the class for you. Kumomi™ doesn't take previous experience . . . it takes being open to the moment and going with the flow! Just don't over-think it. Lisa will lead you through the Kumomi™ process -- her creativity really shines in this. And you need bring only yourself . . . no class kit is required.

Coming to the store tomorrow (Wednesday) are new papers from FabScraps.

Over on the IMAGINE Crafts blog, they have partnered with Authentique Papers and May Arts Ribbons for a blog hop all week. Check what they've been up to by going to:
