I'm sat in bed with a beer whilst posting this and recovering from a packed mixed media weekend. I was too busy to take photos of the classes, but managed to remember to round up everyone for a final finish.
Still managed to miss 4 people out though, not quite sure how lol
People come to the weekends from far and wide, we had visitors from, Southampton, Birmingham, Scotland, London and also Norway. Yes 3 people came all the way from Norway.
Heres the lovely Wibeke and Nina.
And this is the lovely Siv who was on her second visit to us here in the UK
Siv spent last night doing her homework with the aid of the local waters.!!
And most of the day looking like this, lol
And the fabulous double act Yvonne and Jennifer provided us with much needed light relief, especially when we discovered that Yvonne was a Magnum virgin !!! Not any more, we soon sorted that out with ice creams all round!!
We all made a mahoosive 2 inch thick book, full of mixed media techniques, interspersed with patterned paper.
I don't half make them work.!!
Dina Wakely paints and mediums
Dylusions spray ink pad
Tim Holtz Distress paint
Portfolio oil pastels
Wendy Vecchi studio 490 embossing pastes
and others I have no doubt forgotten about.!!
The book has 138 pages in total.!! Can't wait to see them as they are being filled with tons of arty goodness.
I started the weekend with no voice after having laryngitis for the last week, but amazingly it held up. I'm not holding out much hope for tomorrow and if anyone needs me I will be in my blanket fort colouring in!
Ooooh btw look out tomorrow for the update of the nun and the Irishman ……
