A catch up ...

Lookie what arrived on my doormat the other day, with a little note saying 'congratulations, you've been published' Woohooo! I didn't even know! It's just a small picture of a notebook I sent in as part of a different article a while ago, but it's always a great honour, and very exciting to be published in any of the Stampington magazines even if it's just a teeny tiny pic :-)))

A few days ago I taught a class at Art from the Heart, called 'inky cards and tags'. This is always a great fun and very messy class, and we get to play with Dylusions ink sprays all day yay!

Here is the class hard at work:

Now, I'm not saying they were a messy bunch or anything but just look at this. And this was only half way through the day! :

But the ladies produced some fabulous cards and tags. Here's a few in progress:

Thanks to everyone who came to the class, it was fun fun fun, and a bit messy!

Now, you may or may not already know, but Golden Fluid Acrylics and mediums are now available at Art from the Heart, UK. I LOVE Golden fluids and have been using them in my art journals for ages. If you are sadly mourning the end of the Dylusion range of paints, then this may be just the thing for you.

And if you really like the sound of these paints and mediums I am teaching a 'Golden' day at Art from the Heart so you can try before you buy. Have a look here for more details.

In a couple of days I am off to the USA for a few days of sight seeing and retail therapy in NYC before heading out to Ranger in New Jersey. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! I have scheduled a few posts to go live while I am away, so I will be here even if I am not here LOL! 

Byeeee for now

    I must get on with my May calendar pages, I'm guessing you've done yours.....

    ps I did your faux stitching on an ATC, it looks brilliant!

    Thanks for the top tip :o)

  7. Enjoy the States, esp New's on my list:)

  8. Congratulations Kate, well done on your publication. Your inky cards and tag class looks like a lot of fun. Your notebook looks really cool. I've been limbering up my drawing skills for the class at AFTH, but I still have some cobwebs to shake off since doing A level art 22 years ago! I think the drawing class is on the day after you get back from the US. I hope the UK won't be too much of an anticlimax for you after Ranger U? Michelle x

  9. Looks like a great time was had by all - awesome tags! Getting so excited for you and Kaz - wish I could figure a way to come and see you two while you're so close... have an amazing time in NYC, and of course at RANGER U!!! woohoo!!! Ellen xxx
