Work in progress

I wanted to share my latest on going project with you. I have been having so much fun. I've enrolled in Dina Wakely's 'Graffiti of my life' online class and I love, love, love it. It's a mixed media class using acryclic paints, colour wash sprays, Gesso, lots of painting spraying, stencilling, flicking paint ( even got some on the window ) OH was livid!! He he! Splodging on paint with oodles of water and watching colours run into one another is so exiting! Dina shows us how to make an eight page journal, with collage sheets which are stitched then cut out and added to the background pages. A few pages have found their way to the bin, all par for the course! I have yet to make the covers and sew it together using waxed thread. I also need to stick down my collaged hearts and add some journaling to my pages. Dina wrote some verses from her favourite songs, I like that idea, I may do that and also add some quotes I like. I will be back soon with the completed journal, Hope you like what I have done so far. Thank you for visiting my blog, I truly appreciate your comments.
hugs Joy xx

OMG look at you getting all inky, loving it all, and am a tad jealous, was the online class expensive, might have to save for it!
