Fantastic Day Out

Sunday morning my alarm clock sang out at me at 6.30 a.m. Just as I was about to turn over I remembered that I was going to Kent to attend another of Eileen Godwin's wonderful Journal Workshops.With Eileen, there we only five of us but what a fantastic day we had. I'd gone armed with my Gelli plate and a lemon, both of which Eileen said we would be using. However once there Eileen showed us two wonderful projects, one she made while attending a workshop held by the talented Karen Buckle, and one Eileen had made herself very similar but using a different technique that she found on You Tube. Both were stunning and of coarse we wanted to know how she had made them. She gave us a rough idea on Karen's method and then set about instructing us how she made the second. What better way could there have been than getting our hands dirty and trying it out for our self's. I'm not going to go into lengthy details but it involved, White Card stock, Embossing Folders, Black Gesso, Glue and Seal and Inka Gold paints, oh and some die cuts. The picture below was my result, which was done in my new larger Art Journal. Eileen has posted the other three ladies pages on her blog, we all done some thing different so do pop over and take a look and don't forget to take a look at Eileen's project that she made, or Karen's workshop photo's. Needless to say the Gelli plates were put away unused.



Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
