Fabulous time in Ankeny...

where I was teaching at Memory Bound

This is the lovely Dawn, one of the owners.

 Saturday was one of my favourites, the all day painty journal.

Sunday saw the other owner, Kellie, get back from her hols. Not sure what that face is lol 

Sunday we had two 4 hr classes and we had a blast.

Ha ha I think I will really miss Dawn 

These two lovelies drove over 7 hours to spend the weekend with me.

 And I swapped style tips with the lovely Julie.
I am so coveting her cowboy dress.

Aww thanks for spending your birthday weekend with me.

The staff at Memory Bound were fabulous, but a special thank you to Gloria, for providing me with a teapot of tea, cup and saucer and Baileys lol. Unfortunately I don't seem to have a photo of her :_(

Ankeny, I had a blast. I ate steak and broccoli, drank slippery nipples, laughed and laughed and had a jolly good time. Thank you for having me I will be back lol.

So now I am in Wisconsin, and this weekend I will be teaching four workshops at The Scrapbook Store and More, Greenfield.

If you fancy joining us, give them a ring on 414-427-9819             to see if there are any spots left.

I'll leave you with one of my journal pages 

Enjoy xx

Art from the Heart Tutors...Pt 1

Although I am not at AFTH as often as I like, I leave it in the trusty hands of our fabulous in house tutors. They teach some fabulous stuff for us, just check out the workshops HERE
A couple of days before I left for this tour we had one of our tutor play days. We play with products, have a good old chinwag and eat cake !!
I suggested the idea of spotlighting them on the blog, and luckily they were all game for it.
So once a week you will get to see one of them and their fabulous work.

Kicking off we have the gorgeous Tracy Scott

My name is Tracy Scott and I am a proud mummy and nanny to 2 beautiful grand babies who bring immense amounts of joy and inspiration into my life, when not at the day job as a finance officer I spend all of my spare waking moments creating and teaching mixed media art !!

Here is a spread I created in Dyan's style using Dylusions paints, sprays stencils and masks

And here are some pages created with Dylusions but in my own style of art

To see some of the classes I am teaching at AFTH this term go HERE

and if you would like to see more of my work please visit HERE and HERE

How gorgeous is Tracy's work?

If you like what you see go visit her on her blog and give her some Dylusions love

Over the pond to Carson

It was a long long day traveling , with three changes of plane..

and 24 hours later, at 3am I was in the bath, enjoying a beer, lol.

The first part of my tour is to the Stamp Convention in Carson, California, with the fabulous Stampers Anonymous team.

Here's some of my sample boards.

The lovely Gail and the fabulous Trevor

Do you think I have enough stamps with me?

Tim doing his Periscope..!!! Yup I haven't a clue either. Social media and me don't really mix, lol.

Whilst he's busy I will take advantage of his throne...he he.

Met up with friends old... Christine and Vicki

and new...Fran

Thank you to everyone who came to see me, I had a blast.

Yesterday was recovery day and what better than lunch with a view like this one.

This weekend I am teaching at Memory Bound Scrapbook Store in Ankeny IA. Not sure if there are any spaces left, but I always try and squeeze you in, lol. Give them a call and come and see me.

Heres a few pages I finished on the flights.
