PaTwits in Paris - Version Scrap Day & workshop

This is just down the road at the end of our street, although we are not sure what it is!!

And on the pavement just after we've come up from the metro to get on the noddy train to Parc Floral.

Chateau de Vincennes just before the Parc Floral.

In our 'huge tags' workshop intently listening to instructions!!

Brigit, our teacher who spoke perfect English.

Lin with one of her many tags.

My 4 tags playing with the Aladine pigment Iznks. They are half way between acrylic paint and india inks.

Extra curricular activities, Helen drying Emma's journal page with the mop ups!!

Christine and Lin intently following the instructions!!

Then they saw me and smiled!!

Busy, busy, busy, beavering away.

The gang playing and having fun, whilst stopping for a photo opportunity.

Packing away for the next class to arrive.

Guess where we headed off to next.....

Lin making me a tag with greens and LP stamps.

Leandra trying her best at the French lingo with a bit of English thrown in for good measure!!!

Both still demoing after a really long day.

One of the many murals on the wall of the Bastille metro station.

The stash, stencils and stamps....and....

wooden and metal embellies, sanding blocks and ric rac.

Then we hit the town and invaded this place.

Where we had another very traditional French meal, pizza! Please take note of the bottle of wine shared by Emma and Helen.

Lovely post! In one of the pics, Lin S looks as if she's taking the class! Those inks that are part paint part India ink look interesting! Love the look of the stamps, stencils and embellies. We had friends who lived in Paris and we visited them several times, but we never once had a French meal: Vietnamese, Italian, Moroccan - where's that famous French cuisine to be found?
