Thursday saw me hitting the shops in Harrogate for a lovely mooch and a bit of retail therapy, then it was back to the studio on Friday where I was lucky enough to take one of Dyan's workshops. We made this cute little mini book which was fronted with a fab box frame...........
We painted and inked the frame and used Tim's Stamps to decorate it, the book and tags. Lots of yummy Idea-ology metal bits were used inside the box frame. Great fun to do ! The great thing about Dyan's workshops are that you can take away all the fab techniques to apply them to other projects - you watch, every book I make now will have some sort of frame as the front LOL !!
No sooner that workshop was over it was time to clear the decks ready for a kid's party - wow they had a great time making gorgeous mirrors ! Straight after the party it was clear the decks again ready for the start of the Art Journaling weekend - I don't know how Dyan does it, she is on the go non-stop !!! Everyone started to arrive and get aprons on ready............
We all started out the weekend as strangers and we laughed till we cried, and cried till we laughed and more importantly made some friends along the way. What a great bunch of fellow Art Journalers !! Another "must go to" if you get the chance - you even get fed and watered LOL !!I can't believe I didn't take any piccies of my Art Journalling !?!?!? I was obviously far too engrossed LOL !
The week flew by and soon it was time to leave.......ahhhhhh, but not before I grabbed some piccies of the new place - wow look at all that space !!! Very posh !
Can't wait to go back for more..........but yes you guessed it, I am now so far behind with work, that I'm practically in last year LOL ! So, a very busy and hectic week followed, just to ease me back in gently - of course !!
And talking of work, or shop goodies more importantly - the Greetings Farm stamps are now finally on the website - after sitting here for nearly two weeks !!!! There is still another massive box of stamps sitting here too - will try and get them on-line in the next couple of days.
