Back with my haul!

Well I had a great time in York, Sarah Millican was brilliant. I found this great second hand shop called the Banana Warehouse, the window display just stopped me in my tracks straight away. It was just stacked hap hazardly with old vintage tins, tools and tat! The inside was an Aladdin's cave of organised chaos. There were sections for old books, bric a brac, trunks and suitcases and lots of furniture. I spotted an old coronation tin from 1953, and a silver jubilee book from 1977.  This book is full of old black & white pictures from 1953 to 1977, I'm sure I will use them lots. I picked up two fantastic large scale hardback music books too.


I can see one of the music books being used as a journal book, probably the Beethoven's Sonatas, because someone has annotated many of the pages in pencil, and it looks great. There's a Sunday School Prize badge in the front dated to 1932. The other 'Popular Songs' music book is dated to 1913. I love em! Guess how much........only £10 the lot BARGAIN!


Then I went to Art from the Heart this morning, I couldn't wait to get in there. Here's the haul from today. I bought the other 6 dylusion's inks to complete my set. I've got something in mind already to get cracking with tonight, probably using the Dina Wakely stamp, hell yeah! I bought the last copy of Art Journalling mag, it was meant to be.  The 'Art at the Speed of Life' book has some amazing techniques and projects in I can't wait to try out. I still have so much to learn. 

The Posca pens which were recommended to me by Kate Crane, the last time I was at AFTH, I got from Stuff 4 the Office in Ripon (or as my sat nav says Ripe-on! Stupid thing!)


I think I'm going to be very busy on my week off work, and seeing as the weather is...well...erm...CRAP...I guess I have no alternative but to force myself to get inky! What a crying shame.........NOT  :-)

Oooo I forgot to mention, I also booked myself onto one of the AFTH classes, for the 9th of May with Kate Crane, a drawing class for your journal....Must......Contain......My....Excitement......or Kate will think I'm crazy.
