Art Journal Class with Dyan

Hi everyone!  I'm sorry I've been MIA for quite a while.  Many changes at work have happened and I was in a total funk about it.

One thing to get ANYONE out of a funk is Dyan Reaveley!  The class was held at Guadalupe Fun Rubber Stamps.  It was a full day of learning techniques to create backgrounds.

You definitely get your money's worth.  She is one quick gal.  We created so many backgrounds using different techniques.  Getting photos of her that aren't blurry is a major accomplishment!
She's a lovely woman with an interesting life story.  The class was non-stop action!
Can you believe I kept wiping my hands off and this is still what they looked like!  Yep, it was a inky mess!

I haven't taken photos of my pages yet but will soon.   Here's more photos from the class.
Pages from Dyan's journal that she shared with the class.
One of my favorites

Hey Pretty Lady! That is a great picture of you with Dyan. I can see the class was a blast for you, and looks fun. Get you some cheap latex gloves(if you can wear them) from the Dollar store. I can't stand inky fingers, but sometimes I forget. I think you're gonna love these sprays. There is a product called Lindy's that I just got and want to try. (Video at Joggles if you're interested). TFS your class pictures - I'm so pleased that you got to attend. Hugs

You are so lucky! I love Dy and a few years ago she would answer emails and responded to a few of mine. I guess she has gotten so big that it isn't possible now days. I hope to take a class with her sometime soone. Hope things are settling down for you! Vickie
