Art Workshop - 'Lets go on an adventure' with Tracy Easson

Hi folks!!
The day after I did Sandra's Bothams atcs class I was back at another crafting workshop but this time is was at Middlesbrough and was taught by the wonderful Tracy Easson!!!
Tracy had come down to teach several workshops in our area last year but unfortunately I had never been able to get to any of them so I was delighted to finally get a chance to meet her and to take one of her classes!!
Sue Tucker the awesome organiser for Art Workshops had arranged a new venue for us at the end of last year and I was looking forward to seeing it.

It is an amazing space to create in, very light and airy and windows all around with the view of the river!!! fab location!!

Tracy got us going by starting the background on our boards.

While we were waiting to paint to dry Tracy had us trying our hand at using our paints to create little watercolour pictures!!! Here is my little play - so fun to do!!

After lunch we got stuck straight back into our projects!

Here is my final piece.  I still want to do loads of doodling on it but I love the way its coming along. 

 I even managed to paint in a little dog! Sort off lol!! 

Thanks so much Tracy for an amazing class!! I can't wait to see what you will have for us the next time you decide to venture to our side of the border!!!  
I hope its soon hun!

Thanks Sue and the A team for your high quality organisation skills!!!
Thanks Lady's for a lovely chilled out day!!!

Happy creating everyone!!

Regular Art Journaling with Kate Crane - January

Hi Folks just a quick post about the workshop I did with Kate Crane at AFTH the end of last month!!! 
As Kate quite rightly said this time of year can feel a bit dismal with the dark long dark nights and while waiting for spring, so she decided to get us in the mood by showing us how to create these wonderful, bright pages!!

They were great fun to do and it really did brighten up my weekend!
Thanks Kate as always for the instruction and inspiration.
Hope you all manage to add some colour to your life while waiting for spring!!
Have fun!
