background bonanza.....

Busy, busy day yesterday. It started with the exploring colour and texture workshop. The morning consisted of learning how to colour mix, applying the colour, swapping tags as in a round robin, working with others colour schemes and thinking on your feet!!  The afternoon consisted of painting, dripping, spraying, texture, collaging, sticking, writing, doodling and sucking blue lollipops..!!!!

Heres a glimpse at tomorrows workshop, using the fabby Stampotique stamps. You can make cool tags to your hearts content.  You can book here..

Then it was time for all my lovely little ones in the Tuesday kids class. This is Hope who is returning home to the USA shortly. Isn't her canvas gorgeous..??? She has made it as a leaving present for one of her friends shae has made whilst over here. How sweet is that??

The Resident bit of Glamour had a few hours spare and so I got her painting the sample wall. We decided to create a trompe L,oeil of display boards, instead of taking ours on and off all the time. I just need to do all the doodling and get the samples back up and it will look fantastic..!!!!

And then it was on to the Tues night class. Pat had been in  the day workshop and returned again at night. What we didn,t realise was it was her birthday..!!! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Pat, and thanks for choosing to spend it at mine.....

I ahven,t had a lot of time to get really creative, for creative's sake for a while now, so I spent a few hours prepping up some backgrounds in one of my Art Journals.

I had a brill time doing them and I almost don't want to add to them, lol. But they are done ready, so watch this space..!!!

Enjoy xx

A few hours, that would take me a week. The backgrounds are great. I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone at the moment, but haven't succeeded. Think I need to find time to get to one of your classes.
