Fabulous lady, fabulous workshop
I had the great fortune to attend a journal workshop on Saturday with the wonderful DJ Pettit. What a fabulous person and teacher she is. So kind and generous sharing her techniques and offering so much encouragement along the way. If you ever get the chance to take one of DJ's workshops you won't regret it, she has so much to offer.
Below are some of the pages in my book that I made in class and finished at home. DJ gave us some postcards of her art, I also bought some too. I've dedicated this journal to her class, so it features lots of DJ's art and some of mine. I'm looking forward to making another one incorporating some more of my style inside.
I also met two more talented ladies in Stephanie Lee and Bernie Berlin I would have liked to have done their classes too but the ones I wanted to do clashed with DJ's and that's been on my list for years.
The retreat was organised by Bevlea Ross. Bevlea did a wonderful job, I was only there for one of the days, but from what I can gather it ran very smoothly, it was in a lovely venue with great views from all rooms.
I managed to catch up with some of my ABRR mates including Ursula, Megan and Jan. I got to meet the very talented and lovely lady Nic Hohn, she's such a kind and gentle soul, it's well worth a visit to her blog and web site to see her lovely work.. Dneese from grrl and dog was there too, as was Jen, Jacky, Dot, Julia, Julie H, Christina and Kelsy and some of my altered book regulars Anne, Joy and Sue, as well as lots of new talented people.
All in all a great time was had by all.
