Paints, inks and background stamps by Dylusions
Just incase you thought I hadn't done by December calendar journal pages, here they are ....! Ooh, just in the nick of time I'd say, but you know, December always seems soooo busy.
Yesterday I taught a Calendar Journaling class at Art from the Heart to a really fab group, who were a lot of fun. Messy, but fun! Here they are hard at work getting their January pages ready:
We had lots of chat, laughter, tea, cake, and Michael Buble. Well, not in real life (more's the pity) but the sing-along-a-Christmas CD which was good enough.
Cat has done a fab write-up about the day, including wonderful photos on her blog, which you may like to have a look at here.
We had a short break in the afternoon to test my daughter's cake pops which she sent for everyone to try (or maybe to keep them quiet!). These taste as good as they look:
And here's the proof that everyone really enjoyed them:
Many of you have asked if the Calendar challenge will continue next year .... Of course it will! Some of you who started but stopped want to start again, some of you who started and want to keep going will keep going, and I think there are quite a few newbies who would like to join. Yay! Let's keep it going :-) Here's to a colourful 2012!
And don't forget - all of you 2011 calendar challengers - let's show ALL of our 2011 pages at the end of December in a big, giant, show-and-tell blog post. Let's be loud and proud of what we have achieved :-)
On Saturday it was preview day at Art from the heart, and all the up and coming classes were announced. It was a busy, busy day, and a lot of people turned up to get nice and inky at the packed taster classes. All of the new workshop details are being added here, but in the meantime here's a taster of some of the things I will be teaching ......... More details to follow ....
Now, just a couple of things before I go ... all of you art journalers out there may be interested in these that I spotted on Etsy the other day - vintage journaling packs full of bits and bobs and useful stuff for backgrounds and embellishments. Have a look here, you might be interested, just saying that's all :-)
And finally, come back tomorrow for a little give-away to celebrate 800 followers. Woop woop!
