didn't we have a lovely time, the day we went to Paddy's!

Look! I don't think there's an inch of clear space on that table!!

I spent the day teaching my Art Journalling 1 workshop at Paddy's and some great art was made by all, with lots of laughter along the way :)

I love the contrast Emma's green leaves have against the rest of the page.  Her friend made some beautiful pages in autumn colours...

Love that punched hand!

Amy, Paddy's daughter, made this fab page using the artful stamper stamp I used for this week's pdcc. She made some other gorgeous pages using torn paper circles.

Carol used the same stamp with a completely different effect. And look how those leaves in the background shine! Audrey used the same paint [Stewart Gill Byzantia Illuminata] in her journal. It made me think of illuminated manuscripts when the light caught it...

Audrey and Glo both made beautiful 'girly' pages:



Then we all had a bit of a chuckle when they both produced these pages:



What a contrast!! What deep meaning do these dark black and red pages reveal? Especially with those praying skeletons! LOL

This is what is so great at taking time to play in an art journal. You produce art that you probably never would in any other place, and enjoy it! Just like children play with new colours and just have fun, so should we! It's good for you you know :)

Repeat of this workshop:  Thursday 28th January 2010
2 spaces remaining
