Not one, not two....but three!!!

Had a great day on Wednesday at Art from the Heart in Harrogate. Was nice to catch up with friends I've not seen for a while and we made three fabulous canvasses. Everyone at home was amazed that I had done all that in 5 hours...and had time for lunch!! There was time for plenty of laughing and talking too, but I've not mentioned that!!!
First of all we made our canvas 'in the style of Tim Holtz'.....

We used the new Kraft resist paper, which was great...I resisted (pardon the pun!) the urge to buy some, then regretted it as soon as I got home!! Oh, excuse for another visit soon!!!
The next one was 'in the style of Claudine Helmuth' and looks deceptively easy!! We had more problems with this one than the other two put together...I think poor Dyan came pretty close to tearing her hair out!!! That woman has the patience of a Saint!!

...and finally we made one 'in the style of Dyan'...this one was nice and relaxing after the previous one!!

This class followed the brilliant day I had with mum on Tuesday. We went off to London to have afternoon tea at The Ritz!! Here's mum waiting to go into the Palm Court..

...someone has already commented to me that she looks quite at home!! the table..

..the stunning flower arrangement..

...and I have to finish with the 'Powder Room' which I think would have suited Barbie perfectly!!!!

...a pink paradise!!..

Be back soon...

Thankyou for your kind comment on my blog. I'm only copying from a picture so I don't consider that real art at all. Your canvases are great. such a wide range of styles.
Hugs Mrs A.

Sounds as though you had two really wonderful days Jayne! Love the art pieces - the Claudine one looks just as fab as the other two.

... and how posh, tea at the Ritz and great company too, your dear Mum - bet she loved it as well!
