WOYWW - 9 November 2011

Bit late to the WOYWW party this week as I've been out of the house all day. Was up and out early this morning to head over to Art From the Heart in Harrogate for an art journalling class with the very lovely and talented Kate Crane!

I had a fantastic time... not only a great class (and sooo many goodies to play with!) and good company but also it was so nice to have a few hours to myself sans kids! :lol: My mum had them for the day for me as an early birthday present. :)

So the workdesk I am sharing today is not my usual one.. technically, it's not mine at all, it's Dyan's, but hey, it was the workdesk I was using today so here it is in all its glory: :)

The work-in-progress shown above was the background for an art journal page. And here's how it ended up:

It still needs a bit more before it's finished I think. I also started the background for a second page during the class and we also made a set of tags each showcasing a different painting/inking technique which we can use for future reference/inspiration.

All in all, a fabulous, inky, painty, creative, fun day. :)

Marvellous - couldn't fail to be at AFTH, huh! Love the journal page - how can you tell it needs something else then? Very glad to see that even an away desk includes a mug!

Wonderful 'busy' journal page. I love Dyan's style, just wish she had opened her shop the day I made the journey.
