Colour me Happy

Well preview weekend got off to a great start today. Thanks to everyone who turned out. Its always nerve wracking hoping you will love the projects I have created and a great relief when you do.
The lovely Michelle came to the Harrogate Show and was wearing a beautiful knitted corsage. I really admired it and much to my joy she made me one specially. Thanks babe. xx

Preview is still going on tomorrow as well for those who couldn't make it today. Also tomorrow is the Art Journal class. Theme tomorrow is colour. We will be talking about the meaning and effects of colour and how to use it effectively in you art journalling. I decided to make a journal that was purely based on colour. I,ll show you some of the pages tomorrow. But I will show you the covers.
Here's a sneak of the front. Painted tags onto a paint collaged background.

Inside back cover.

Back cover

And the front cover itself

I really enjoyed creating the covers and using such vibrant colours, and , no they are not Claudines paints. They are in fact Adirondack Dabbers.
Ok so hope to see you tomorrow either in the shop or on the workshop. Don't forget to bring your prettiest shoes. xx
