Today I was on a secret mission to attend a journaling class, yes, I did say a journaling class, with the lovely Kate Crane at AftH. The reason for going was because Em and Lin and Chris were all going. Em made it as you can see here, but unfortnatley, Chris and Lin ended up waiting for a recovery vehicle on the service station about an hour away.
So the theme of page one was black and white and shades of whilst trying not to make it too muddy. We preped the pages added the white panel in the middle and outlined it in a black. Did some stamping in the paints and added some music paper to create a frame.
I chose to use the main image from The Presenters plate by Brett Weldele. We had to colour it using shading using pencils and the like. I've never been any good at colouring and shading, so I did mine with black soot and iced spruce distress ink markers and a water colour brush.
Quick blast with the heat gun before we moved on!!
I didn't take any steps in-between as I was covered in black, white and shades of grey paint - lol.
View from above. The afternoon page was to use a splash of colour. I chose purple and used the Dylusions paint in the tubs, it's lush. Thick, creamy, vibrant and very quick drying.
I wanted to use another image from Brett Weldele but unfortunately there was only the one I'd already used available in the workshop, so I left it empty and am going to finish it off another day when I find the right image.
Emma colouring in her image for the second page, just look at all those coloured pencils!!
Everyone chilling colouring their images and adding colour to their pages.
Emma's pages. She put them to one side for them to dry whilst finishing her colouring. She used the Dylusions teal paint for her splash of colour.
And whilst in the process, she managed to dunk her elbow in the black paint - mucky pup!!!
Had a fab day and really sorry that Chris and Lin had car troubles and couldn't join us - next time, fingers crossed xxx
Just lifted this of Kate's FB page, just to prove I was there you understand
