What can I say? Just spent the most wonderful day at an art workshop, but not the usual type, this was a psychic art workshop, or you paint what you feel or see in your mind! It was brilliant. I'm a crafter, but I don't draw or paint, I think most of us are afraid of painting and drawing, especially when presented by a huge canvas! This canvas (see pic) is actually 16 inches by 20 inches and the thought of covering it terrified me. But that wasn't the idea, you just had to draw/paint what you felt, big, little, abstract, whatever came into your mind. Plus there were lots of bits to stick on if we wanted.
We had a meditation first, whenever I meditate I see the colour purple, or blue, so I was quite surprised to see the colour orange, which seemed to grow into a flower, a poppy shape. I was nervous about just applying paint so I used some pastels, but then knew that I needed to give it a more vibrant colour, so onto the paints and suddenly I was away, feeling very happy at slapping on the paint, I had been sitting down, but decided to stand up, I just became engrossed in what I was doing. Okay it ain't rembrandt, but do I care? Nope, cos I had fun, I then added some stars, and found a small butterfly punch and some gorgeous glittery paper so let the crafter in me come out. But my canvas was now covered.. :-( No worries, just start on another!
Then after we'd all finished we had a breather then Yvonne 'read' our paintings, think this was the most interesting bit. Consider also that aside from knowing our names she knew nothing else about us, she had deliberately just kept the chat to a minimum but never asking anything personal. So it was very spooky how accurate she was. She's hoping to do a monthly workshop, I hope so too as I'll be there!
Stress... what stress, I am like overcooked spaghetti! Have a lovely weekend all.
