Art Journal Class 27th June

Hi Lovelies,

 Yesterday some of our Art Journal ladies gathered for a class
with Helen to create this beautiful page.


As always, the ladies have endless amount of fun, while learning new techniques 
and leaving with their very own masterpiece.


The ladies began by spritzing their page with Tim Holtz Distress sprays and Dylusions to create a base.
Jo Sonja's paint was then added to a few sections for more dimension.


A multi size circle stencil was then used with Jo Sonja's 
paints to add small pops of colour.


The key to a good art journal page is layers, so another 
was added to the page using various stamps in different colours.


After a light wash of Dylusions 'White Linnen' to soften and blend everything 
together, the ladies were ready to draw and colour their flowers.


The pages turned out beautifully and everyone was
very impressed with their work.


When you look closely, there are so many elements to this page that
all work together to create a mini masterpiece.


A little bit of black grease pencil around the edges made the flowers stand 
out on the page and was the final touch to this stunning project.


Our Art Journal classes are held on Tuesdays and Fridays 
and are always full of fun and laughter. 

Call our lovely ladies at the Scrap N Patch if you 
would like to share in the fun.

New South Wales Adventure - Armidale

We today we ventured about Armidale on foot. We started at the markets having a look see at what they had at the farmers market. A few marketers so not much to see today really.

Off we walked around town to see the historical sights. Lots of old buildings from the early days.
 In Armidale 100 years ago you had a choice of 21 Hotels!! Today there are 9. Sorry beer lovers.


 These guys had a 4 displays of miniature figurines- really cool

 Lots of churches within cooee of each other ; Catholic, C of E, Pressy, and Baptist. Lovely old buildings to be admired.





This Celtic cross was erected to commemorate the first Christian service held here in 1845.

A walk through Central Park we came across some structures to commemorate efforts of soldiers in wars.

Her is our van setup at the Showgrounds. A good walk to the amenities keeping us fit!!

Day 2 - Tin Can Bay

First an explanation - as we travel around we will be sharing our travels on our blog.  A number of our family are not on facebook, so this is our way of keeping them in touch.  Not totally craft related, but you never know when some craft may show up :-).

Another Day in Paradise

We were off to a bit of a late start this morning.  Slept in until 8am.  Life is hard :-).

We decided to take a stroll down the Kath Kelly path.  We were told it was about a 30 minute walk and there was a little coffee shop at the end of the road where we could refresh before wandering back.

When we set off the first thing we noticed was that someone had pulled the plug on the ocean.  The tide goes out a long way here.

The path winds along the shoreline and there are lots of signs showing the different bird life and trees.  There are also a number of different pieces of exercise equipment.  It is really a lovely walk.


Now okay we did amble in our walking but we were a bit shocked to find that we took nearly 2…

Day 3 - Tin Can Bay

Evening Lovelies,

This morning we set the alarm for 6.30am so that we could go down and feed the dolphins at Barnacles.  It was a little chilly this morning with the temperature at 3 degrees, but the wind was a pretty gusty so it seemed cooler.  My family must love me that they got out of their warm beds at that time to go and paddle in the water.


We did think that there would not be so many people there due to it being a week day, but we were wrong.


We only saw one dolphin this morning, his name is Mystique.  He was the alpha of the pod and is about 28 years old.  He was very gentle and a little battered as you would expect from an animal of his age.  Andrew, Rob and I all took a turn at giving him a little treat.

Back to the van park for a cuppa and then Gramps gave Rob a lesson on how to put the annex up on the van.

 It did not seem too hard, and hopefully Robbie will remember how to put it up next time we need it.  They were thankful for Andrew's height to help when we had t…
