Catch up at the Studio

I taught my large abstract canvas class today and it reminded me I still had pictures to show from previous classes so here are some of my students work, from both here and the US. Just feast your eyes on these beauties...

Fabulous aren't they.

I also forgot to give a big shout out to the lovely Sue, a facebook friend who attended some of my workshops in St petersberg. This fabulous parcel arrived in the post from her to remind me of where we were. How thoughtful was that ?

Yes it's a giant blow up flamingo, a house wouldn't be a home without one would it?? And a multi pack of flamingo glasses for class use. How frikkin fabulous, thanks Sue, you rock.!!

The flamingo set me off thinking about my reindeer stamp and so I did a bit of playing around on tags when I got in tonight. What do you think.?/

I'll leave you with something I have neglected to do for a while...yes it's daily outfit time...

Yee hah...

Enjoy xx

Fancy joining me on Tuesday......??

It is Dylusions Christmas at Art from the Heart and you could be be making some of these little beauties...

Tons of backgrounds, tons of ideas. It's not yet the 1st of December so I am not supposed to have Christmas songs in the studio, but If you don't tell Our Ben then I won't, lol
To book go HERE

I have taught 2 art journaling classes this weekend, both with a Christmas theme, here's a page from one of them.

It was based on one of my Ranger videos, which are now all on the website HERE.

Here is part one.

and here is part two.

I have just returned from the US and whilst there I spent some time at Ranger Headquarters, doing highly technical top secret kind of stuff.!!! He he.Whilst there 2 of my favourite boys flew in as well, The lovely Tim and Mario. Although we were there on official duty and working really hard with long hours, we always, always make time for some fun. I will post you some pics on another post, but we introduced Mario to the perfection that is Fanny Craddock and had a ball making a new video. Can't wait for that one, lol. I have a new catch phrase, courtesy of Fanny herself, wonder if you can spot it!!!

In other exciting news, Our Ben and the lovely Katie went to New York during hurricane Sandy. And despite all the devastation, and there is lots, believe me I have seen it first hand, despite that they have embarked on a new journey together. Our Ben popped the question and Katie agreed to be his bride. You could have probably heard her shriek of excitement over here, lol. So she is now going to be Official Daughter in law to be. I am so pleased and wish the pair of them everything they wish for themselves. Congratulations Ben and Katie, I salute you .

I'll leave you with a few journal pages I did on the plane

and this is how my head feels at the moment...

I think I need to give myself some love, lol

Enjoy xx
