Kate Crane Art Journal Day

For my Birthday this year my Sister in Law took me to The Stamp Attic for a day with the lovely Kate Crane.  The class was "Drawing in your Journal", everyone can draw, I guess I just need more practice!

We started the day with a few drawing techniques, sketching without looking, then drawing the person opposite you, sorry Alexa!  We tried drawing the person opposite with your non dominant hand, surprisingly my left hand drawing was better than my right!

For the journal pages I drew a funny bunny character and some houses, the first journal page was painted with acrylic paint then used stencils and bottle tops to add textures.  The second page we used the Dylusions spray inks with stamping over.  I still need to finish them off but here is the work in progress: -

Here are a couple of photo's Kate took of me busy spraying and all the ladies on the day.

Whilst I was browsing in The Stamp Attic (as you do!) I spotted this really cute paper by Prima so just had to buy a couple of sheets and made this page of Mark and I in Kefalonia last year.
