Catch Up!

I have been really busy lately and haven't had a chance to update the blog. So get ready for a photo heavy post.

Firstly though a little bit of class news. On September 21st I will be teaching a beginners Art Journalling class in Dungarvan Co. Waterford. This will be an opportunity for all of you who have been tempted to start this creative journey, but have just been unsure where to start. On the day we will hopefully complete 2 pages and have lots of fun making different backgrounds for some more pages. If you are interested in coming to the class contact me here in the comments or on my Facebook page.

A second class that I will be teaching is a mixed media canvas. I will be teaching this as part of the 2 day Create with Kate event in Athlone on 5th and 6th of October.

And so to what I have been doing recently. Well my journal journey continues. I am really enjoying playing with all of my products and seeing what works together. The new distress paints from Ranger and Tim Holtz are fantastic! In the latest issue of Crafting Ireland online magazine I did a product review, so check it out here.


Another thing that I have been doing lately is art swaps. 
The first swap was hosted by Create with Kate and was an alphabet swap. We were each given a letter of the alphabet and had to send our artwork to the person above us on the list. I decided on a canvas. The letter I had was "R", and I had an idea based on a quote about rainbows.

Another project I have done is a commission for a 16 year old girls birthday. This is again a canvas with a lots of collage work on it.

So there you go, a little sample of some of my recent work!
