Wendy Froud Workshop










I attended a Wendy Froud Worshop in New York, at the Purple Petals Studio,  this past weekend...WOW!!!  It was a 3 day workshop on creating  a "creature"...I wanted to take a class with Wendy...but i was a little "afraid" of the "creature" thing!   I thought about just doing a pixie or fairy...and I was told Wendy would accomodate that...but then I thought about it.  Get into a new mindset,,,TRY  it!!OPEN a NEW DOOR....So I did and I was amazed at all of the fantastic techniques that I learned from Wendy and Toby!  They are both amazing and giving artists! 




I'm very excited to try again and be a little more "BRAVE"! haha   I worked off of a picture of my child, ugh!! I mean my "cat" moon..  I still have to dress him..The almost completed doll is just "DRAPED" with some fabrics..to try and get an idea for an outfit.

I met so many new friends that are very talented artists..Sherry put the class together and took care of everything, she was great...and I dont think everything would have flowed without her.
