At the weekend I crossed over the Pennines (gasp!) and went to teach at the very wonderful Craftrange in Burnley, Lancs, for a day of art journaling and mixed media madness using the Media Line by DecoArt. It was a great day, with some lovely people, in a very tempting craft shop!
We worked in our journals, on tags, we rusted card to make faux rivets, we used crackle paint, spread crackle glaze through stencils and we played with lots and lots of colour :-) Oh, and we made lots of mess too, but a mixed media day wouldn't be a mixed media day if we didn't make a lot of mess!
Thanks to the lovely staff at the Craftrange for making us all feel so welcome :-)
Unfortunately on the day I was so engrossed I completely forgot to take any photos. Doh! I am so annoyed at myself for this.
So, what else have I been up to? Well, working in school obviously, and OMG I have been so exhausted! A room full of 7 year olds is lots of fun but also very tiring.....
And knitting socks. Ha! This last year or so I have crocheted 4 full size blankets so I thought it was time for a change. I NEED a project for the evenings when I eventually sit down. I don't relax by doing nothing, I relax by doing something. So here is my first ever pair of socks ta-da! Using Goldfinch yarn by WYS in case you are interested.
