Day 2 Residency Week - with Holly Dean

What a great day spent with the lovely Holly Dean teaching us to paint layers in mixed media and then supper at Carolyn's in the beautiful Hide-Away Bay. 



Some of Holly's art - love it!


 Great tip for making a palette with paper towels and tracing paper.  Wet the paper towels with water and a few drops of vinegar.  Put tracing paper on top.

Holly's fav color
some other nice colors

Great tip here using tissue paper on top of Dap before pressing in stamp.
