Art Journaling with Dina Wakley

Well i have had great day today in Harrogate with the lovely Dina Wakley trying my hand at Art Journaling. I have had a go before with Dyan Reaveley at Art from the heart but when i saw that Dina woz coming over to the UK i knew i had to take her class.
Shaun had to take me as my Dad could not get the day off work. Shaun decided to bring his brother along so he would not get bored going round harrogate on his own.
Dina woz so amazing the class woz all about texture and layering on are pages. At first we just practise the new techniques from the "toolbox" and then we got to play. Dina decided that she wanted to play
as well which woz kool. It woz great to see Dina doing her stuff i just loved the pages that she made.

The challenge Dina set for us woz to have 25 layers on are page. I tought this would be hard but it woz not and i really enjoyed trying something new. 
Here is a picture of me and Dina at the end of the day. I had such a great time and would love to take a class with her again.

Here are the the layouts that i made today. The one below is the main one i did. After class i asked Dina to sign it for me.

Still need to do some writing on the one below.

The two top pics came from the lovely Sandra who i meet at Harrogate last time i woz taking a class.
