The Magic Sketchbook Workshop with Sue Carrington

I have just had the the most Super Sunny Saturday, thanks to Sue and 6 wonderful ladies that have kept me entertained all day.

Sue was teaching the class here at Artist Trading Post, and was joined by Sheila, Ruth, Diana, Rose, Lynda and Jill.

All though I wasn't teaching the class or taking part, I enjoyed the banter, the shared knowledge and of course the good company.

The workshop was to create a journal cover, using mainly Paper Artsy Stamps and paints, with stencilling and individually designed metal work.

The Pink Pig book was larger than most ladies thought it was going to be, so there is plenty of scope for journalling, doodling or turning into a scrapbook album, the sky's the limit.

This is Sue's Sample on a large Pink Pig Landscape book, showing how she builds up the background  layers using Paper Artsy paint, stencilling and stamping with Archival Ink. Then adding metal embossed with 10 Second Studio Tools and other embellishments.

Here's Sheila, Ruth and Diana working hard.

Sue happy in her work and doing a wonderful job.

Jill, Lynda and Rose also busy.

Rose's book cover using various Lynne Perrella stamps, Paper Artsy paints and lots of Crafter's Workshop stencils in the background.

Diana's Cover  using some of the Limited Edition Paper Artsy Paints (which we should have in stock next week)

Lynda chose to go purple.

Sheila went a bit different using the New JOFY stamps, which are really super.

Here's Jill's the colours are really vibrant, sorry about the picture being a little blurred.

Last but not least, Ruth's stunning cover, you can see the Treasure gold highlighting the grunge paste which has been applied through the stencil's.

Well done ladies and thanks again to Sue for teaching all the lovely techniques.
Sorry for making you stand out in the cold.

Look forward to seeing you all again soon.
