... hello everyone - hope you're having a good day. I've been busy this morning catching up with some ironing and I finished it. It was made so much easier as I watched Silver Linings Playbook - which was excellent.
I told you yesterday that I was going to the Great Lakes Mega Meet - well, it was brilliant. I took two classes about colouring with Copics - well worth it too. I feel much happier about colouring now. My third class was about Zentangles. Our teacher was Diana Hirsch - she is a super teacher. She created a wonderful atmosphere of calm, which was very welcome after walking around the exhibition, and then started to teach us three basic tangles. After our class we had all completed a tile - here's the photo of the group's work:
With only three tangles - each work is totally unique, and it really was lots of fun. I felt very relaxed at the end of the session and also want to learn more! Here's a close up of my very first tangle - I think I'll be making more.
I did get a number of bits and pieces at the show, but I was reasonably restrained. I got some scrapbook templates to make shaped pages, a few books with new tangles in them, some stencils for mixed media and art journalling, some wonderful new shimmer acrylic paints (Silks), some Cuttlebug 5" x 7" embossing folders, some laser cut titles for scrapbook pages and, the best deal of the day, a lot of new Copics. I got a selection of greys and the fluorescent colours! Very pleased with my stash!
That's all for now, as I'm off into my craft room to play - got to make a card with some of my new stash!! See you soon.
