Preview Day at AFTH and new journal

Art from the Heart (AFTH) is my favourite art shop in Harrogate owned by Dyan Reaveley the creator of the Dylusions inks, stencils and stamps.

I love it when AFTH have a preview day because there's such a buzz in the air. Lots of people and blog friends turn up and we all have a catchup and get inky. I really wish I just lived round the corner. I loved meeting up with Sandra aka RedKittyBcreates, she makes me laugh, and the lovely Ruth too, so pleased she turned up in between classes so we could have lunch together. Mel popped in to say hello too, nice new hairdo Mel.

We had our first class with Kaz Hall, she's such a great teacher. We made a calendar tag using Perfect Pearls mixed with Dylusions inks. I love those giant black Ranger tags......they jumped into my basket though naughty tags......... We finished our class by doing the conga around the shop! 



Our second class was with Kate Crane, with a brilliant idea of a ATC in an arty envelope, It's so gorgeous I love it. I made the big mistake of putting my Stickles glitter on my wings before I had cut them out! Kate rubbed it in because I was being cheeky in class, that's karma I suppose :-) . 


I was running out of time and I forgot to stamp my sentiment and the boy stamp that I wanted for the ATC...oops. So I improvised when I got home. Luckily I had stamped the cats so I used two of them. but added some angel wings to the cat with a heart and drew a tree for him to sit on. The expressions of the cats just make me laugh.

I also managed to grab me one of these!


So I had to get started ASAP, still a working progress though.
I used Kaz's perfect pearls technique on the stars.


I had a great day out again.  
Thanks xx
