Yesterdays class and journal pages

Good morning everyone.
I trust that you all had a wonderful weekend.
Yesterday at The Craft Barn I taught my Art Journalling #2 class which is all about textured backgrounds which is always a fun class to do as it involves stains, inks and lots of paint!



 Here they are, all working hard; don't they look happy?! This is some of what they were getting up to during the day.





Some cool backgrounds ready to work on. What I enjoy is getting more backgrounds done for me to work on too. so when I got home last night I was looking through them and before I knew it these to pages had taken shape

 I love the way this page turned out in terms of the background so I didn't actually want to cover too much of it up but I think these Stampotique work really well on the page. A bit dark but quirky too. The 3 peeps sending a wish flying to cheer the girl up. She does look rather miserable at the moment.

Once I'd done this background I knew I wanted to use the " Mighty Oaks from little acorns grow" sentiment and of course this new Tim Holtz/Joe Rossi image is perfect!

Righteo, I must away, places to be, things to do. Hope you all have a blessed and  creative day.
