Color Burst Powders

Do you remember CQ? She's a friend that I used to work with. If you search "CQ" on my blog you'll find that she's in it a lot.

CQ took a class at Ben Franklin about a month ago and learned how to use Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders. She came over to my house the other weekend and taught me!! 

Here's my Flowers in Vase.  

Color Burst are watercolor powders that are activated with water. It's very, very potent, kinda scary to use, and very, very fun. 

Here's CQ's masterpiece.  !!!!!!  Holy Crap, right!!!??

Thanks CQ!! You can come over again anytime!!!

Now you can add your own art gallery, next to your restaurant/how to cook place, and your thrift shop, and your craft/learning store.

Pretty soon Jalna's Place is going to be longer than Restaurant Row! ; )

Keep going Auntie Jalna! ; ) ; )

Agree with anonymous,love the vibrant colors.

Ditto, to anonymous comment. Loved the vibrant colors. Your paintings could pass for a Manet, Van Gogh or O’Keefe.

Are these cards? I love flowers.

jalna said...

Not cards, Mmiissee. CQ did hers on a small canvas, mine is on plain watercolor paper.

Erick said...

Looks awesome. Where did CQ go?

jalna said...

Not sure what you mean Erick, but the class was at Ben Franklin. CQ is still working with us.
