News from my travels

I'm a little behind in blogging as I have a very hectic schedule, but today I had some down town so here's the latest news.

This weekend I will be teaching at The Occasional Artist, Glendale, Arizona. You can find out more HERE.

Then I have a few days hanging out in Texas with my boys, Jim and Cesar. Fun and shenanigans are on the agenda.




The weekend of the 9/10th of May I will be at Scrapbooks n More, New Braunfels, Texas. You can find out more HERE

And I will be ending my latest tour at the lovely Ame's place in Lititz, PA. Pages in Time.
Just a little note to say there are places available here, so those in Maryland who were disappointed to miss out, get calling now lol. Find out more HERE

Then its back across the pond for a few days before I set off for my land trip of Munich. The hills will certainly be alive with the sound of Dylusions!!!

Joining me on the trip are the lovely Jim and Cesar, and I am then dragging them back with me to Art from the Heart

We are extremely honoured that Jim will be making his debut, teaching in Europe at our store. Whoop whoop and whoop again.
Yes this is the first time you will have had the opportunity to take a class from The Gentleman Crafter. He is well known for his fabulous and innovative use of chipboard and Graphic 45 products. Yesterday he was announced, once again, as an Ambassador designer for them. 




Heres what he will be teaching for us.

Butterfly Automata and Tag Book…My personal favourite!!

Automata [aw-tom-uh-tuhA mechanical figure or contrivance
constructed to act as if by its own motive power. Which basically means,
turn the handle and the project moves. With the Butterfly Automata you
will turn the handle and the flowers and butterflies spin and go up and
down. Looks hard? NO, not with this kitted project…Laser cut pieces
ensure success. Each one will be different and that’s the joy of automata.
The Butterfly Automata has a side opening tag book for all those technique
ideas that spin around in your head.
