Introduction to Art Journaling

Hi Everybody
I hope you are all well and thoroughly enjoying the summer holidays.  Doesn't it make a change for us to be having some warm weather while the youngsters are off school?  I know we keep having rain showers, but they are warm ones!!
Well, we had a good day on Saturday with the Stix 2 and Woodware demonstration.  Michelle did a great job and, since then, we have all been busy playing with our glue guns making pearls and fake brads!!
For those of you who were interested in them, the acrylic stamp storage sheets should be in by the end of the week and the Woodware Christmas stamps by mid-next week.
So now it is time for me to talk about next weekend and give you a reminder that Liz will be here running her 'Introduction to Art Journaling' workshop.  This is what she has written about the class:
Introduction to Art Journaling
 Art Journaling is becoming an increasingly popular activity and loads of fun!  There are no rules, no rights or wrongs, just loads of ways to make art!  Whatever your age, whatever your ability.  And don't be fooled by the word 'art' - it is for everybody.  It is about playing and having fun.  It is free flowing where anything goes!!
  Come along to this 2 ½ hour workshop and learn how to get started. 
We will create a range of backgrounds using Jo Sonja acrylics and then work through a selection of techniques to help you make your very own works of art.  You will use your pages to make a small book that you can take home and continue to use as your very own Journal.   The image shows different stages of the Art Journal and you will be guided through creating your own designs.

The workshops will run from 10am 'til 12.30pm and 1.30 'til 4pm, Saturday 10th August.  The cost of the workshop is £15 for 2 ½ hour workshop, with all materials supplied.  Bargain!
I am looking forward to next Saturday.  I am going to have a fun morning playing up in the workshop with Liz.
Well that is all for today.  I know it is only a quick one, not one of my usual ramblings - but I have a feeling there will be a few short sharp ones during the holidays, so I will probably be back in front of the 'puter next week.
Have a good week, enjoy the sunshine.
Best wishes from Lynn and the Girls. xx
