One of the real challenges for many of us was deciding the order of the pages, especially considering color, pattern, texture, lettering, etc. For some, an even harder decision was determining which pages would be the front and back covers. Ironically, an unusual number of us had friends and family insist on helping make these choices!

During the afternoon of the last day, we sat in a circle and shared our thoughts and experiences as we showed what we had created.

Throughout the classes we were encouraged to just “Do it”, “Trust the Process” , and “experiment”.Teri went out of her way to be really well prepared, to supply everything we might  need in class to work, and to try to assist as well as encourage each of us as we worked. She even posted samples and instructions on the internet. Her demonstrations were well thought out and complete, and she was willing to answer all questions, even when she was unsure of some minor point. Her knowledge and experience with color is extensive and impressive. She was always positive and available. And she continued to encourage us to try the “what if's”--as in “What if I add color here?”, or What if I write letters there?”

This was a terrific workshop and if you ever get a chance to take one from Teri Martin...DO IT!
