Studio news...

Thought I would show you some of the first classes in the Winter Workshop Schedule.

The first one is a canvas class. We will be taking a canvas and learning paint and ink techniques to decorate it. Adding effects, stamping and doodling, and a carefully chosen quote. The image is taken from a magazine, transferred onto card, and then the fun begins. We will be painting directly onto the image, using the outline as a guide, creating weird and wonderfully wacky outfits. Then adding a photo of a family member. This is The Goddess...loooking good babes. Just need to complete one for each of the other kids, lol.

If you fancy joining me and quite honestly, who wouldn't lol. It is on Tues 27th Sept and you can book it HERE. Please note this is the only canvas class left this brochure, all the others are sold out already.!!

The next class in line is my tribute to Dina.  We will be creating an accordion book from watercolourpaper and swathering it with Rangers Colourwashes, Pearl Mists and Dabbers. You will be learning ghosting techniques, gesso resists and reverse stenciling. We will be hand stitching little inserts and flaps for quotes, covering the edges in your choice of Tim's tissue tape. And for the piece de resistance we will be stamping with Dylusions stamps and ...wait for it..Dina's fanfrikkintastic range of signature stamps.

The covers are thick plastic embossed through the Vagabond, and given an antiqued finish

If you fancy joining me, it is on Tues 4th Oct and you can book it HERE

So onto Daily Outfit.

Today is a fabby blue and camel, polka dot little number, which is actually only about a fortnight old.

 And teamed it with my battered old suede boots, long may they live.
