For those of you who asked, I did get to Betty's and sat in the window, sipping a Viennois coffee (yummy) and eating their chocolate biscuits! I even managed to shop in Leeds on the way home!
I almost forgot in my excitement to show you what we made! Day 1 was a birdie canvas, containing lots of paint and pencil. Do you like it? mmmm think it needs work....
Day 2 was my favorite.. a Coptic stitched book, which I loved creating, with lots of painted pages and stamping using Dina's stamps... still a work in progress...
The final day for me , was hard, intuitive painting is not one of my strong points, but I persevered, and the challenge for me was quite hard! I only admit this to people I know! LOL! The final outcome was to make this into a book.
I do admit I loved it once it was made.
It was a glorious messy painty weekend. Thank you to Dina and Dyan , I am full of ideas that take me out of the norm, and into getting messy!!
