Sunday 22nd October - Alphabet Quote Cards - 10-5pm

December 1/2/3 - Dylusions Journaling - Back to my Roots - 10-5/10-5/10-4pm
This workshop is first of its kind as it spans 3 whole days!! Yes you heard correctly, we will be creating all day Friday as well as Sat and Sun. Wine and Pizza night has moved to Sat where we will have time to relax and journal together (optional 5-8pm) I was going through some old old journals and came across some that were all handmade, even the pages and it got me thinking how much I miss that style. So that's what I'm doing, going back to my roots, and taking you with me! We will start on Friday with all the prep involved in making up the pages and covers - this could get messy, so you might want to bring an apron! Saturday we will start the decorating using paint techniques, layers of stencils and borders galore! Then moving onto collage. Where to start? What to use? Where to position it etc? Sunday is all about the finishing touches, the quotes, the doodling, the putting it all together - phew!
