I have had the most amazing, fantabulous, fun, day thanks to Dyan at Art From The Heart in Harrogate.
Today has been all about stretching myself and going outside of my comfort zone when it comes to crafting!! And boy, did I do that.........
Now, I love inky messes - i love nothing better than stamping with my Distress Ink Pads and doing techniques with those - but I have never used Dylusions Inks or Paints (OMG!!! AMAZING!) and I have never done a journal double pager before using so many different layers....... I LOVED IT!!
My rule has always been Less is More - but Dyan teaches you that More is More and you should try more layers and borders and shading and sooooo on!
I had to force myself sometimes, but it was so worth it!
I love my pages - not complete yet, but hoping to finish later tonight.
Will post picture when finished and then I am off to check my diary for next year to see when I can go again.
I want to do a full size canvas next - for on my wall at home!!!!
If you have never been to AFTH or taken a class with Dyan, you are missing out on the most amazing day!
You MUST go..........
Check out all their workshop dates here and I might see you there!!!!
I'm going to be a big regular now I have got the journalling bug and bought 3 moleskin journals ready to mess up!!
Thanks Dyan - you are a teapot cosy wearing wonder and I love you for introducing me to this fab craft!!
