but as you can see, Walter doesn't appear to like wearing his yellow woollen waistcoat - he is definitely NoT happy! I spent yesterday immersed in letters, fonts and illustration as I ran my lettering workshop at The Cubby Hole, Crewe...a wonderful day!!!
We started with some loosening up exercises on a large scale, trying different pencils and crayons.
I think almost everyone fell in love with the watersoluble oil pastels that my Mum brought back from the US last year.
The lettering patterns kept us all so quite and relaxed that you could have heard a pin drop!
I love the lettering that Nigel used on this page following an activity creating different line patterns.
This is Nigel's too [he was sitting next to me so I managed to get more pics] and I just love the way the letters in the largest heart come to a point.
Little Sue counted 30 journals at home (how fab is that!) and brought some along to add writing in.
I had anticipated this being a 'less messy than usual' workshop, but no! Although I did have to tidy up before I could continue working on this page...
Ah, that's better!
I am repeating this workshop this coming Thursday and Saturday at Paddy's Stamping Place, Prestwich - no need to book, we'll squeeze you in!!!
