Well what an eventful few days it' been, I've loved reading everyone's blogs about the weekend it's lovely revisiting it albeit in my mind and thinking about all the great things we learnt, it's definitely taken it to the next step believe you and me. So thought I'd show the completed pages from the weekend but before that this is one that I completed in my A3 journal before my weekend!
I loved the colours - no idea how I managed to create the pink background, I decided to limit myself to using only 'leftovers' in my leftovers box on my table to finish it off rather than going rummaging - it definitely focuses the mind!
This is the other side of the page, lots and lots of scraps on here - most fun!
Then this is the first page I did at Dyan's
I selected an emotion and colour at Dyan's and initially got calm, which I then changed for annoyance - quite amusing because the subject of conversation at the time was something that annoys me but I thought I wouldn't find an image to go with it - but first magazine there it was waving at me in the right colour - don't ask me how Dyan managed this bit of magic LOL. The background is a 'made' page quite literally and I love the texture of it, it feels so nice.
The shoes page was made with images chosen by Shelley and
then the next page was when we started going it alone - we were so into the swing of it by then!
Loved the page we worked on in pieces, my other half has often seen me art journaling but his own attempts have proved frustrating and he's never finished a single one. So his request last night was to show him some of wonderful things Dyan had taught me, (it was also a damn good excuse to have an art journal session myself) although it did make me feel like I need more dabbers LOL! This is what I created
Great fun, really liberating when I did it and here is the one he did now I know they look similar but that was the idea, lead him by the hand to see if I can get him addicted - verdict - well his response to me was "well if I'd known what it was all about I'd have done some sooner" followed by "well we don't need the TV in the evenings now" - LMAO mainly because a few months ago he tried to follow my method and didn't get beyond the base coat!
Right - off to teach my 9 year old son - will it be as successful? Not sure - I'll come back later to let you know! Got parents evening as well tonight so busy busy busy!
