Jamie Dougherty's "Blooming through the Seasons" and The Inked Stamper Boutique

I signed up for Jamie's Dougherty's "Blooming through the Seasons" online workshop (there is still time to get in on the last 6 months of this awesome fun Bloom Girls experience) ...  

 Myself and a bunch of ladies are graciously (by Dawn's invitation) getting together at The Inked Stampers to do the class together.  It has been so much fun, and definitely a huge perk to be going each month to the store and doing the class together!

Every month Jamie has introduced me to a product I have never used before or in using a product I have in a different way, it has been inspiring! 

A little taste of what we have been up to!

Month 1 - this one I was too excited to wait to do it with the girls ha ha and forged ahead and created this two page layout after watching Jamie's class ...

 Still Month 1 - the evening with the ladies at The Inked Stamper I started this two page layout - using the same technique and flowers. 
 Month two - We created this lovely lady with the beautiful turquoise flowing hair.  
 Month three - We used Jamie's "Sharon" Bloom Girl stencil and did this two page layout ... this is now my favourite stencil I just love her.  :)
Month Four - Jamie class lead us to create this lovely - with special lovely flowers full of texture and colour ... I learned about a product I have never used before .... Prima Elements Powder ... Awesome. 

Month Five - this was my first experience working this intensively with Pan pastels - I struggled with my girl at first but I have come to love how she is turning out ... I haven't decided where and if I am going to add the lovely bloom for this month, and I turned my girl into a pixie.  :) 

 Every month Jamie is bringing something new to the table and we end up with these delightful two page spread in our journals - it has been so much fun not only learning how to draw the girls but also the blooms every month.  

And so blessed to be sharing the process with the girls down at The Inked Stampers  I get to be inspired by the others doing the pages and we encourage and help each other along.  

Looking forward to the last 7 months of this course - 
Thank you Jamie  :)
