woyww and workshops

Basically what you see is a lot of random things that I am currently in the process of playing with or putting away in my journal.  I am in the final week of the 3 Hearts journal workshop with Christy Tomlinson and have tried journaling with doodles and a faux batik.  Have to put this lot away before I can start playing with wax and UTEE.

Underneath the doodle page a kids watercolour box (never opened!!) and a page os swatches for an online class with Alisa Burke.  Loved her instructions "don't buy anything" as you may have it in your stash.  How right she was!!   Never realised the classes would overlap but it should work out in the end as I will reduce the amount of housework  I do.....

Off to see what all the other woyww's have been doing since posting their PIF.  Yes, Bella it is flying your way, hope you enjoy.

  1. Isn't the 3 Hearts Workshop wonderful? I really love it. I'm a little bit behind, but that's okay.
    Love the idea of reducing housework in order to do more online classes - great approach!

  3. There's some interesting things on your desk today. I like the look of that colourful piece at the top. Thanks for your kind words re. latest HOH page. I was happy with it but it did look better IRL, and yes, I am making a copy of it to keep.

  8. yep often people buy more and use less, although I have to say I am a believer in decent pigments when it comes to colour mixing...

    I introduced my art teacher to neo II wax watercolours (caran d'ache) and she was blown away

  28. Sounds like you've been a busy crafter!

    Thank you SO MUCH for the gifts & ATC you sent me, you are so talented & kind. Having just started journalling, I will enjoy using the little book to try out my newly learned techniques. The distresser is cool too, I've been amazed at the effect it can have.

    Sorry I'm late popping over, but better late than never!

  29. Yes we do live VERY far away from each other. My PIF has not reached the USA yet either...one of those things I guess. You look very busy with classes and journals etc. Great ideas going here.
