My first class ever!

Today I tried out a class at Bizzy B.  It was Glazed Metal Effects by Jenn Starr.  The day started out well with getting my choice of colour on the canvas, but then I had to emboss so much tin that my hands and shoulders hurt!!
After a very long time I finished and began inking up a storm.  Unfortunately I felt as though I had no idea what I was doing, but in the end it all turned out.  No one finished the project, so I didn't feel too bad.  Later, at home in the evening, I decided to see if I could get one canvas done.  I didn't like the colours I chose on my metal, so I used some alcohol inks and they turned out wonderful.
Here are the finished products, however, the blue one feels unfinished, so hopefully I will figure that out soon.
 This one is Jenn Starr's creations.

 This is my first one, it says Dream.
The blue on says Live and Love.

The blue one feels a little disconnected somehow.
Let me know what you think.
