Dina Wakley Weekend

Can't believe that this time last week, I was in the first of three fantastic days of Dina Wakley classes at Art from the Heart. It was a fabulous experience, not least because not only did I get the opportunity to have three days of guilt free art (no thinking about whether the kids are hungry, thirsty, watching too much tv etc.)but I got to meet some of the people I have previously only met online! It's hard to know where to start, but I guess the pictures can do most of the talking!

Dina, of course makes it all look so easy, her style is so effortless and even when she just throws something together to illustrate a technique, it looks way cooler than I could achieve with hours of deliberation. But these pics are the results of the first day of spraying and daubing and generally playing!

Special mention should also go to Dyan, as her altered originals inks were a key part of the creations we made!

More next time, although I am not allowed to publish one particular picture of Kate when we shared a room....


  1. Oh ha ha ha. Very funny. I just know you are itching to do it :-)
    V nice pictures indeed. Was it really only a week ago?!

  2. Gorgeous, gorgeous pages, love the colours and I particularly like the first butterfly one. Good to meet you.

  3. Now I'm so admiring that art, but in the back of my mind is a gnawing longing to see that piccie of Kate.... hehehe....
    I like the first page Sarah, how you used part of 'Betty' (the one that is furthest away) It looks great and adds to the whole picture.
    I really enjoyed meeting you and LOVED looking through your journals - amazing! x x x

  4. Sarah you make this look so easy, just beautiful art work. What a wonderful experience and sharing with awesome Kate.
    Your pages are so colorful,I just love them.
    Thanks for sharing this wonderful workshop,wow !!
    What an inspiration you are.
    Have a great day, Hugs Laura. xoxx

  5. I've just made a page I'm not sure I like, but yours are FAB. I really must get myself some inks, plus a tent or holiday cottage right next door to AFTH ....

  6. These are truly stunning...and would Kate be mad if you sent me the picture and I posted it? ha, just kidding.


Thank you for taking the time to visit. It's always nice to know that someone has stopped by, and it would be lovely if you left a message!
