Didn't we have a fabulous time?

 What a fantastic four hours!  As you know (I think I have mentioned it once or twice!) I went to Harrogate to take a workshop called Artful Journal with Tim Holtz, hosted by the delightful Dyan at Art From The Heart.   When we arrived the room had been set out with tables for four or five people and at each place was a kit (sorry it's blurred!)

Inside the kit was an Art Parts book (Wendy Vecchi), pre-cut pages for our book which included some of the new Kraft Resist paper (yum!).  Also inks, ink blender, paint dabber, glossy accents and so much more.

Here's Tim demonstrating the finished article and then he handed round so we could all have a look.

During the session we got given other bits of kit including the new Alpha Parts, the grunge blocks (hidden under everything else in this photo!) and a set of salvage stickers.

Here are what was left of the 'loseables' after the session ended.

This is my cover using various of the 'loseables', the Alpha Parts and the Grunge Blocks.

And here are some of the inside pages now that I've stuck more bits down and inked and stamped some more this morning.

And here's a tag using the new set of Reflections stamps that I bought.

Back to yesterday.  At the end of the session Tim gave away some sets of stamps to a few of the participants.  Mario was the Random Generator.   He chose my number and I was given this limited edition bag!

And talking of limited edtions, Dyan made a ticket in her own inimitable style for us as a reminder of the day.  She had a limited edition of 60 printed, numbered and signed them.   Then she 'defaced' Tim on each individual ticket.   I was given number 1/60.  Thank you Dyan.

Thank you to everyone for such a fantastic day: Tim and all his team at Ranger; Dyan and Ben for organising it all.  And all the ladies that took part especially the ladies I shared a table with.
