Journaling, journaling and more journaling...

Yayy..art journaling class today...Got off to a bad start though. The builders were using an industrial angle grinder and the noise was unbelievable. I complained and was told there was nothing I could do about it and I would just have to put up with it...!!! Well the words Bull and red rag come to mind..!!!! lets just say that at 10 oclock sharp they were silenced and didn't resume till 1 min past 3pm. Dylan 1 - builders o, lmao...

Oh yes it was the dreaded vine drawing..!!! They were fabby at it proving that its not as hard as you all think.

Wanted to show you this lovely mini book that one of my Tues night ladies, Tanya, made for her daughters school teacher. Her daughter Lucy is leaving for university and so her and her friends all conrtributed photos and memories.

I bet she cries when she opens that little pressie..!!
And you need to see this little beauty from 12 yr old Isobel . Its an altered book which she did with no help at all. I think shes done a fantastic job.

This is what we were doing in the Tues night class. Using all Claudine Hellmuth products. Sticky back canvas, paints and grungeboard.

Ha ha don't think our Tom will be amused, do you..??

And heres some more of the promised journal pages. Just love the face on this woman ..

Enjoy xx
