week 1 in lilla rogers' MATS class part B :: paper market

yay - lilla rogers' make art that sells, part B has begun! the focus for the first week was on the paper market. yum - i love paper!  as a kid i used to ask, "please, please, please can we go to bush stationers?!"  i would spend what felt like hours (but also felt like not enough time) browsing the aisles of paper, pens, erasers, journals.... oh my!

our assignment this week  was to create a holiday card using candy and/or ornaments.  i designed the three cards above, but i turned in the one with the pink background.  it was refreshing to do this assignment without stressing about getting picked by lilla for the critique.  i sat down and designed cards that i would like to send to family and friends.  and now i totally want to send these out!!

i don't know what it is about lilla's class, but i have SO. MUCH. FUN. with the mini assignments and maxi assignments she gives. my whole body fills up with this sense of lightness and joy when i'm sketching and scanning and coloring and tweaking for my assignments.

want to see some work from my classmates?  see denise's and lauren's.

which card to you like the best?
