Day 2 of Dina's Art Journaling Techniques......well I closed my eyes for a second, blinked, and it was morning...Wtf..???? ah well, quick cuppa, ablutions and throw some slap on, de-ice the car, get stuck in traffic, alternative route, collect Dina, get nearly to work, realise forgot to pick Our Ben up, short detour, arrive at the studio, crank the heating up, get the kettles on, dole out the kits, another cup of tea, organise the troops and we're off...!!!!
Now they may all look extremeley well behaved, but don't let that fool you for one minute...!!! |Shortly after this photo the giggles started and slowly descende into a mini melange of hilariousness. I won't mention the culprits names but you know who you all are, lmao..
Todays workshop was just as wonderful as yesterday, despite me being slightly stressed at wrong deliveries and the fire alarms going off repeatedly. The challenge today was to complete a journal sheet with a least 12 different layers. Heres mine part way through the build up.
And here they all are hard at work.
And some of their beautiful work
Here's my finished pieces from the morning
and this one from the afternoon. I just love this one. It is a year today that I was stood in the cold at Mums funeral. Finally everything has come round full circle and there are no more anniversaries to get through. I dedicate this to her for Mothers Day.
Everyone had a fabulous day and left with stunning works of art. Dina is a little treasure and it was a privilege to be in the workshop. She taught us all some amazing "tools" to make up our "toolbox". Nothing was too much trouble for her and she took the time to make each and everyone of us feel special. She was more than happy to impart with her knowledge and enable us create our own masterpieces, and all for Diet Cherry Coke and blue lollipops.....
Here are some pages from her large journal which is absolutely breathtaking
At night although we were absolutely drained we dragged ourselves to the Mexican and had a beaut meal.
Right I,m off now as I have to take Dina to the airport in the morn and I have tons of emails to reply to.
