Now I know this was a month ago and really I should blog as it happens but my blog always seems to be at the bottom of my 'to do' list - hence the delay. I am looking to change that though and put it a bit nearer the top of my list, so pop by more regularly and you might see more posts from me. There I have said it - got to do it now!
So, end of February Abi and me hop on the train to the NEC for a three hour workshop, with Tim Holtz, Claudine Hellmuth and Suze Weinburg. And it was a fab three hours. I enjoyed every minute, although it went too quickly!
We played with Suzes Melt Pot (and of course I have since 'had to' have one), Claudines paints and sticky canvas paper, and Tims Alcohol Inks, Distress Inks, Fragments, and more....
Abi is not a crafter per se, but she is an Artist dahling and so she really enjoyed getting inky and painty. Even to the extent of getting paint in her hair (I clipped mine up so it was free from my face and paint, lol). Please excuse the quality of some of these photos - they were taken in haste (and excitement) with my iPhone!
Three hours flew by, and we learnt new stuff, revisited older stuff and generally had a fun time. Suze, Claudine and Tim and so friendly, so helpful and down-to earth - they made the three hours a complete joy. So if you ever have the chance to take a workshop from any of these guys then go for it!
At the end we had a gooooorgeous arty framed mirror! Mirror is from Ikea! So pop one into your basket next time you are there, it has a lovely deep frame to create some arty damage to.
