Fab, fab week ! Part One !!

Phew....finally managed to find time to get the piccies off the camera and blog about the wonderful week at Art from the Heart. But where do I start, so many brilliant techniques, workshops, inking, painting, getting as messy as can be. Lots of lovely new friends, good food and Dyan's fab hospitality - even thought she did get me hooked into Prison Break LOL !!

First workshop of the week was with the amazingly talented and lovely Dina Wakley - wow..... what can I say, Dina shared all sorts of techniques and tips with us....... we gessoed, painted, textured, inked, splatted and collaged for two glorious days.

Dina was such a fab tutor and such a lovely, lovely person - we were indeed in "messy heaven". What a fab way to spend my first two days, I truly felt like I'd had a "one to one" workshop with Dina - what a perfect venue with just the right amount of people.

The first layer of paint was laid down..............

Then we started playing around with masks...............

Even Dyan got time to play..........

Dina in full "splatter mode" LOL..................

We even got fed !!!! Yummy food courtesy of Pam (who is an absolute diamond)

Work in progress..........

At the end of day 2 we descended on the local Mexican restaurant for a fab meal and drinkies.........all trying desperately to hide our inky and painty hands LOL !

If you ever, ever get the chance to take one of Dina's workshops you will have the most amazing time !! Specially at Art from the Heart, then you can do Dyan's too - double whammy !!!

Well believe it or not, uploading these piccies has taken ages and ages, I think my Internet connection is playing up........again !!!

So I'm giving up for the night - more piccies tomorrow !
