journal workshop

I've had a wonderful day today.  I taught my steampunk journal at Paddy's and thoroughly enjoyed myself :)  

And got to meet a blogfriend IRL!  Sarah A and I met over at The Play Date Cafe and it turns out that she doesn't live that far away, and was able to make it to the workshop today :)

As usual I was pretty rubbish at remembering to take photos.  We had a fabulous time with walnut ink, various autumn colour inks by Sticky Fingers, and Distress Inks.  Everyone had to restrain themselves from cuttlebugging too many of their pages!   The ruler and the cogs were particular favourites.

We had a very special treat at lunchtime.  Sue and Cynthia, like the good students they are, have been off journalling.  They've taken Dina Wakley's online graffiti class, and combined it with some ideas from my journalling classes and come up with some regular prompts to use on their pages.  

I love Cynthia's money tree!  And should have got a photo of Sue's word collage on a hand shape.  I'm off on my hols on Monday - two weeks camping on the Isle of Wight.  I'm scheduling some posts but please forgive me for not visiting your blogs for a while.


  1. Just WHAT am I going to do without you, dear friend? Make sure you have that new smart phone set up for FB updates or I'll go mad ; )
    Lovely workshop photos and always wonderful to see what your students are doing xx

  2. The workshop looks like great fun and everyone's artwork looks yummy, can't wait to do that class LOL. Have a fabulous holiday and a well earned break. See you soon. Tracy Evans x

  3. Hi Sarah

    Well is was a much fun as a student gleaning your knowledge as it was for you teaching us! REALLY enjoyed the class and I am woking on my journal as I type (well not exactly at the same time LOL).

    Thanks so much for putting on the workshop and for introducing me to Paddy's place!!

    Have a FAB holiday and maybe when you get back I will have completed my Steampunk journal hehe

  4. Gorgeous pages in all the journals. Layers and layers of goodness.

  5. Your workshop looks really good fun, Sarah.

    The steampunk journal is a great idea, must give it a try.

    I have an aversion to straight lines, rulers and anything that cuts in a straight line. But, I guess you mean a ruler die, I think I know the one you mean.

    (Hope that's the right spelling; aversion????)

    You must be like me and can't sleep, or have you got 'steam' rushing around your head.

    Best wishes
    Sue xx

  6. Have very happy hols :-) Hope the sun shines for you! Kate x
