Workshop diary with a bit of sparkle


Wow it has been a long time since I blogged, 7 months!  Not good.

What have I been up to:

My business as Art Workshops had a really busy first full year and I guess time just run away with me.

On the note of Workshops: My latest creation was to transform a plain old black diary into in my opinion a piece of art for my workshops in 2015.

I also created a new Workshops note book..................Loving the Finnabair influence.

The amazing Finnabair has a challenge up on her blog called Sparkle-shine blog hop.  So i am going to enter the diary into the challenge.  Believe me it was a challenge, because I am so not a glitter girl....But I felt I could just about cope with using Finnabair Charcoal Art sugar.

 All you have to do is create a piece of art that has sparkle or shine, upload it and whilst you are there pop along and visit all her amazing creative team, grab a cuppa as you will be there for a  wee while . All details are to be found below.

Hopefully I will not leave it so long to blog again.

Take Care
