Catching up !

I am long overdue sharing the photos from the Journal Journey class that I taught in October at Artist Trading Post. As yesterday was the day of my Altered Beer Mat class I thought I would kill two birds with one stone !

The Journal Journey class was also the first class in the new workshop and it was great to have lots of space !

This is Pam's beautiful cover, the texture and blend of colours really does look like leather !

Hazel took a completely different approach and used pastel shades, absolutely beautitful !

Sheila created a stunning red cover, my photo really doesn't do it justice !

Love how Sheila has added the words to the back too !

Marilyn created some lovely depth  on her cover.

Apologies to Ruth as I didn't manage to take a photo of her book, which was stunning too ! Everyone then did their own thing on a page inside and there was lots of playing, experimenting and laughing !

Yesterday I taught my Altered Beer Mats class and I was joined by 6 lovely ladies who worked very hard all day !

This is one of my samples, you can see all the details of how I made it here on the PaperArtsy blog. 

There was quite alot to do in this class, lots of stencilling, layering, stamping and painting !

Everyone managed to make all the components we just ran out of time to assemble it all together.

Pam chose a beautiful combination of colours and stencils and is just doing some dry brushing !

You can just about see here Jean and Di's beer mats, again some beautiful colours and combination of stencils being used.

So, that's my round up of my last 2 classes and also rounds off this year for my classes. I'll be back at ATP on the 29 November but this time I'm attending a Finnabair workshop, so really looking forward to that !
