Ranger Uni - Day 3

Day 3 dawns nice and sunny. Can't believe it's the last day but I'm going to enjoy every moment!
 Breakfast first though!
 Tim started off the morning with colourwash before handing over to Dyan Reavely for her Dylusions range of inks.
 Cue mucky paws!
 Lunch was Subs, delicious fillings but I forgot to take a photo! The afternoon was taken up with ALL things distress.
 Then it was over! Certificates handed out
 Class photo taken
 Time for some photos with new friends (Ellen and Hege from Norway)
 Then out came these amazingly large boxes! This is mine!
 Yes I know you are all curious so here it is spread out! I had to remove most of the packaging to get it in my cases (that's my excuse for unpacking it anyway!)
 Next morning it was the cab back to the airport
 Last pic at the airport before saying goodbye to Kaz and Kate.
Then home! Tired, head buzzing with ideas and  this is what we covered on day 3.....
 Colourwash - just love the faux batik!
 Dylusions

 All things distress _ some of these have to be seen in reality to get the full beauty!
 Distress stains
 Distress markers
3 amazing days,80 technique tags and memories to last a lifetime. That's my Ranger Uni experience. Thank you for putting up with these marathon posts but I do hope you've enjoyed sharing it vicariously with me!

Really enjoyed reading about your Ranger Uni experience over the 3 days, what alot of information and techniques were crammed in.. I cant wait to be able to get onto one of your workshops at Craft Barn so I can meet you in person and also maybe learn a few of the techniques you learnt at Ranger... I was on Andys Timeworn Techniques course and am also friends with Rachel Card Queen..... love your work Neil, you are so talented.....
