Bit of journaling and classes...

Good morning folks.
I hope this finds you well. This week has been one of those weeks where I've only managed to steal moments in the shed but I guess that is one of the advantages of having a dedicated room; everything can sit there just waiting ready to go! So I managed to finish this quick page in one of my smaller journals
I covered the page with random strips of self adhesive canvas that were left over from another project and used Distress Stains to colour the page roughly.
 I added the doodles with a black pen and wrote out the words. This sums up how I feel at the moment " I have a brain like the Bermuda Triangle; information goes in never to be seen again. "  I added some whiter details with a paint pen.
 I also added some textures to some other pages and left to dry overnight so they are ready today.
 So, not an awful lot going on but just thought I'd touch base with you.
Today I need to finish packing for Sunday's class at The Craft Barn where we'll be working on my Burst Book Cover kit and exploring UTEE and other embossing powders o create a loose leaf journal. Still some places if you want to join in the fun? Details HERE

And, while I'm thinking of it, just a reminder too that I'll be teaching at Crafting Time in Shepreth, Cambridgeshire. First class is on Sunday 20th of July where we will be creating a loose leaf journal with my Ancient Book Cover kit and also beginning to explore art journaling. There are a few places still on the first class so if you are interested in art journaling why don't you join us? Inky fingers and fun guaranteed.
