Dina, Dina and more Dina

Yayy yet again we at Art from the Heart have managed to obtain top class workshops with the return of the fabulous Art Goddess, the one and only, Dina Wakely.


Heres what she says about her classes

Come and make 3 handmade journals and join me on a journey through the sun, the moon, and the stars! We'll create a different type of journal structure each day. Then we'll fill the journals to the brim with art and techniques and emotions. We'll focus on various painting and background techniques, and I will teach you some sketching tricks with the Stabilo Marks-All Pencil. You will fall in love with it, and it will take your art to a new level.

Are you rDay 1: Sun Journal.(6th May 9-5pm)


This journal will be filled to the brim with happiness and collage! We'll create a bamboo-skewer journal structure. Then we'll take some time to write about happiness and joy. Next will come art techniques! We'll layer paint and collage and start sketching with the Stabilo.



Day 2: Moon Journal.(7th May 9-5pm)

This journal will be rich and subtle and full of the things of the night. We'll be working with gel medium and paint, and doing some stamping as well. We'll write about our dark sides and create an an accordion-folded work of art.

Day 3: Stars Journal. (8th May 9-5pm)

This journal will focus on reaching for the stars! We'll be cutting our own stencils, scraping paint, and lifting paint. We'll write about our dreams, and our journal will have windows and passageways that we can go through to reach them.

Ready to come and create the Sun, Moon, and Stars with me? I can't wait to create art with you!

Booking will go live on Monday 21st March @ 7pm UK time (places won't be available until then, it will just show out of stock)

Sorry to leave it late but have had a hectic weekend with the show etc..not so much burning the candle at both ends but, as someone bluntly pointed out to me, actually taking a massive blowtorch to the frikkin candle...lmao.

Dina's classes are absolutely brilliant and suitable for total beginners as well as the very experienced. You will leave stuffed full of techniques and zillions of inspiration, as well as 3 very unique journals. I've baggsied my spot. Our Ben said I had to book like everyone else, but I have managed to break into the system, he he he.

Big thanks to everyone who supported us at The GNPS at the weekend, we had a ball. And luckily, due to lots of threats to the crowd, lol....I did not retain  my title of The Ready Steady Craft...cardmaker of the show. Thank frikk for that is all I can say.

Ok fingers on the website ready, off you go ...

Enjoy xx

Ooops nearly forgot. The lovely Ali counted the brushes for me and came up with 648.... so the winner is ....
