Update, and more shoes..!!

Ok, so we start with Saturday's workshop. The A - Z of me. I always knew this was going to be a hard class, as there was sooooo much technique in there. We had masking, inking, faux bleach, over stamping, paint effects, and that was only one side of each page..!!! Unfortunately I couldn't make it any less than 26 letters so it was a case of on your marks , get set, GO GO GO. I think I frightened the students because I didn't hear a peep out of them till at least lunchtime. They just got their heads down and i had to keep reminding them to breathe, lol.

L - R Ann, Pat, Anne Marie

Julie, Liz, Dawn and Sharon

Clair, Gemma, Amanda and Laura

Need to share with you this gorgeous artwork that Liz brought along to show me. She has been doing creative machine embroidery, but she also dyed the fabric herself as well. I was in awe, it is so beautiful.

Escorted Emmi into town to buy some new replacement shoes and somehow ended up with another pair for myself. I,m never quite sure how I do it really . pmsl...!! But you will be amazed to find out that they are not black. Oh yes. They are tan. Shocked aren't you .?? But they are high and they are strappy , so I haven't gone too much away from my comfort zone, lol.
Had overnight guests at mine last night. It was the annual rugby ball and so Ben and his lovely girlfriend Katie ( who by the way waltzed her way into that university place, You go girl xx) got ready here. Don't they look fabulous..??
I was also out tripping the light fantastic. Mind you this is probably the only photo I am able to show you, lol. Me and my mate Cas.

woke up with a hangover this morning, but 2 Red Bulls, 2 Ibuprofen, 3 97% Harrogate pork sausages, ^ Northern soul songs, and 3 cups of tea and I was raring to go. Finally started and finished the magazine article on Claudine Hellmuth's paints. I am such a night mare, everything is always right up to deadline..!!! Here's some sneaks.

I absolutely loved doing this article and it fired me up so much I spent the rest of the day playing at making art. What better than a clean , empty house, music blasting and paintbrush in hand..?? Narr, I cant think of anything either.
