Whew! What a weekend! I have just returned from a 400 mile round trip to the wonderful The Stamp Attic in Oxford to teach two days of inky painty messy art journaling fun :-) It is always fabulous to be met with such enthusiasm, and even better when 'newbies' and usually neat and clean scrapbookers, are prepared to jump right into mixed-media!
We played with paints, pastels, stencils, and Dylusions inks .....we doodled and drew, and collaged and stamped......
Here are a few photos of the weekend in progress:
Alexa drying off her Dylusions background.

Sue playing with inks (watched over by Sarah!)
Steph stencilling a gorgeous background.

Finger painting ;-)
Tracy stepped right out of her comfort zone this weekend ... !
I am always amazed at the quality and quantity of art that can be created in a weekend, and even after step-by-step instruction, everyone takes things off in their own direction and adds a wonderful personal touch:
It was such a wonderful weekend, and as usual I am in awe of everyone's creations. Thanks to everyone who came along, and a huge thanks to Wendy and Mr.StampAttic for making me so welcome :-)
