ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC22 - Week 23

Welcome to Week 23 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week's event was Workshop Week 2022 hosted by Becca @ The Happy Ever Crafter.  I participated so that I could experiment with a number of different art styles.

SUNDAYI spent a portion of my afternoon with these members of my Quilt Bee:

We attended a ceremony honoring one of our friends, who now has her name on the Wall of Memory at the Passmore Center where the Donation Bee meets:

Prior to that, I visited with Knittingsuek during our weekly Zoom call:

MONDAY - The highlight of Day One was Funky Floral Art Journaling with Megan Wells.  You can find her on her website@makewells on Instagram, and on YouTube.  Here is what I made in Megan's class:

TUESDAY - Day Two found me drawing faces in Attabeira German's Learn to Draw One-Line Portraits class:

These were the reference photos...

Right - without any marked points:


WEDNESDAY - Wonderful Wednesday - Did you see my completed UFO?  If not click that link to have a look.

Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color - Canceled in favor of a quick phone call during a class intermission.  Today's favorite class was a toss-up between Joanne Lauzon's class called A Colorful Collection of Cards:

And the reason I signed up for Workshop Week 2022 in the first place...

Helen Colebrook of Journal With Purpose and you will find YouTube videos linked at the bottom of most blog posts:

THURSDAY - I thoroughly enjoyed several of today's classes.  The most shocking was Learn to Draw Perspective by David Drazil.  You can find him on Instagram @david_drazil or on his website and if you want to learn this technique I would highly recommend:

FRIDAY - Weekly Knit Group - I had planned to attend, but a family emergency kept me home today.  :o((

I did spend some time quilting a quilt for my friend Carol, who liked the trees that I added to my great-nephew's quilt, so I added them to the borders of her Forest Friends quilt:

What about Workshop Week, Joyful???

This was the most interesting class of the day...

Floral No-Cut Dutch Door for Your Bullet Journal by Shayda Campbell.  You can finder her on her website, Instagram, or on YouTube.

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week.  You saw all the creative things that I was doing this past week, but here's what you didn't see:

I also played with some Bright/Dark BLUE fabric scraps between classes.  Apparently, creativity breeds creativity.  :o))

Until next time...


  1. Looks like you took some interesting classes and played with several different techniques - fun! Looking forward to seeing what those blue scraps are becoming!

  2. shayda is the reason I signed up, Shayda and David both
    we could zoom today if you like

  3. Looks like you had a fun week of creating! Hope the family emergency ended well.

  4. Drawing faces is the hardest ever--give me a ton of archetecture and I'm good! lol

  5. Way back in time, when going to college to become an elementary teacher, I took an art methods class. One of the things we did was a continuous line drawing. I had never heard of such, nor saw a piece of art work using the method. Not until 40 or so years later, when I had time to fiddle around on my machine doing what I called "Thread Sketching" (see my blog), THEN I knew the purpose of a 1 line drawing. Why didn't the professor say so? Now I see you are experiencing that type of art. Have fun with it.

  6. A family emergency doesn't sound good, hope it was resolved quickly.

  7. I hope the family emergency is well sorted and that you are back on your normal routine. Love those trees!

  8. Wow, what an action packed week! Looks like fun, Joy!

  9. You pack a lot of activity into each post, Joy. So much fun to read. Love all the drawing and creative pursuits you are enjoying. Make no wonder you and LeeAnna are good pals. My journal is blah...I need to learn how to step it up. Thanks for the links. I will follow them!
