Oooooh where do I begin. What a fantastic day we have had today. We woke up to a covering of snow, again. I got a cup of tea in bed from Our Tom and I treatesd Lyn to 15 mins of Jeremy Kyle whilst applying our slap..Then we shot off ( or ice skated!!) to get Dina and Our Ben. Into the studio, crank up the heating, fill the kettles and wait for the students to pile in. Snow stopped play for a while as many of the students where stuck in traffic, but eventually everyone got a cuppa and we were off.
I was a student for the day, which felt really strange but I tried to behave honest..!!! Dina is an absolute darling. I have taken one of her online classes before, Journaling 301 (highly recommended) , but there is a defference berween an artist and a tutor.!! Thankfully she excels at both. She manages to convey her instructions in such a way that all understand where she is coming from and where she wants us to get to. All delivered with a wicked sense of humour and a thoroughly relaxed attitude. She soon had the class hanging on her every word, and was easily coaxing fantastic art from every one..
We gessoed, we painted , we sanded, we masked, we sprayed, we stencilled,
we wrote, we outlined, we dabbed, we splattered, we surface textured
Heres Sandra and Jane
Think you could have skipped the manicure..lol
Heres a few pages from one of Dina,s journals.
The lovely Lyn who is staying with me brought with her a local island delicacy....
The packaging states that "sizes of knobs will vary, much as in life"...hilarious ...
This is how my finished pages turned out...
So class finished, class went home happy, Dina went out with some peeps she met at the weekend. Then we
ha the kids workshop, beautifully instructed by Pam, thanks babe x No rooner than the kids disappeared rhan the ladies arrived for their class.. Then it was shopping,. home, bath, blog...and we will do it all again tomorrow, lmao - not.!!!
Oh by the way, my birthday is not until Wed 10th March, rol on,
