The photo below shows me (on the far left) the wonderful Dyan and my good friends and fellow Tuesday Taggers DT members Emma and Janet at the end of a fabulous two day mini-ranger university techniques weekend masterminded by Dyan at Art From The Heart in Harrogate.
Two days of wonderful inky, painty, shimmery play....combined with good food, great company, plenty of laughter and crafty shopping !!! what more could a girl ask for?
In two days we completed 38 different technique tags, using acrylic dabbers, dye inks, pigment inks, distress inks, distress crackle paint, perfect pearls, Claudine Hellmuth studio paints.....etc etc.... we spritzed, embossed, blended, resisted, painted, coloured in, altered, distressed, grunged and babywiped to our hearts content, ending up with each of us creating a wonderful resource file full of information, tips and techniques which can be added to in the future.
Some of the techniques were already familiar to me, but Dyan managed to put a new twist on them, others were entirely new and have opened up new ways of using my crafty stash. So huge thanks to Dyan, and to Emma and Janet for such an enjoyable weeked.....and here's to next time !
Bye for now
