Good Afternoon, well after a productive day having a good sort out, I thought I'd pop along to do a post, now a couple of years ago I went to Art From the Heart in Harrogate for an amazing art journalling weekend.  It was fantastic, I went with my Mum and my sister and we had a fabulous time meeting lots of new friends.  Dyan is a fabulous teacher, but most of you know that anyway!

Unfortunately we didn't take a camera but Jude who we met there and have become good friends with did have her camera with her and took loads of photos, so I asked Jude permission to use the photos she'd taken of me, my Mum and Melanie my sister for a layout so I could document out weekend and  she was kind enough to oblige - so big thanks to Jude!

Now I thought which papers, well it had to be some of Dyan's gorgeous Blonde Moments papers but which one, I went a rummaging and came up with a page, but the colours didn't quite go, so I sat and painted all the spots the colour I wanted them to be - much fun!  I highly recommend it and because Dyan's papers are so thick they didn't warp from the paint - win win!
Up close!  As part of the weekend we were all awarded with a certificate in Prattology - hence the title!

So if you have papers that don't quite suit your photos but are almost there, then I suggest you get out those acrylic paints and have a play - great fun!
