Journal play and a few other things ....

Bird stamp by Invoke Arts

Another journal page on corrugated cardboard ... if you look closely you can see the texture of the cardboard beneath the paint. I wanted to try something different with my lettering, so I painted the words with a fine paintbrush and some calligraphy ink:

On Saturday it was preview day at Art from the Heart, where the new classes for the coming months are announced, and taster classes are offered. New classes will be on-line here soon. It was a baking hot day (most unusual for the north of England!) but plenty of you still turned up to play with inks and paints and generally make a mess ;-)

In my taster class we made these little mini journal prompt tags, using Talens Amsterdam acrylic paints. *Love love love* these paints, and so did the peeps on my class too! Much to my delight these paints are now in stock at Art from the Heart (not yet on-line but keep looking!)

The paper clay class I offered last time was very popular, so there will be another class ... Paper clay is amazing stuff to play with - very easy to  mould and use. Here's a little bunny girl I made:

Paper clay available *here*

And an angel with marabou feather wings!

Details of all my classes can be found on my blog page here. I'll be taking a little break from teaching over the summer to spend some time with my children :-) But after the summer hols I will be hitting the ground running ... ! Maybe see you sometime?

Byee for now.... happy Monday everyone!
