No it is not raining in my world..thank heavens, just a lot of colour and spraying and an altered book page made with the fabulously colourful Dyan Reaveley at Stitches last weekend! I have been hooked on altered books since I first did a workshop, almost 10 years ago at what was then HIA ( now CHA) in the States! Tear up a book...never! sacrilegious! How could you? It was heart rending to tear that first page ( of an old and unwanted book, of course!) but I have never looked back. Don't get me wrong, I adore books, and am always buying them, but if a book is unloved and about to be tipped, then recycle it, and use it to make art!
Dyan showed us a great technique and we got to try her new sprays with Ranger ( they will be in the shop soon :)) and some of her stamps and her stencils .. . Lots of paint and my hands were their normal mess when we finished. Thanks Dy, it was a little bit of colour in a black and white world.
I am off shortly to my workshop at Pickleberry, to show my girls the new Distress Markers, and to give them a taster of working with them! hehe. My gorgeous loving hubbie bought them for me as pressie from QVC.. how lucky am I? You can pre-order them from us.... sadly not due in for at least 3 weeks as they have been delayed from Ranger. This week we have FREE postage with no minimum order!
Have a very creative day
