We're each going to take turns to make up a kit and decide on a project that we all must do - no excuses - the person who's turn it is is boss! Sam put together a wonderful kit with lace, flowers, leaves, stencils, paper, masking tape, stamps and drippy ink and a photo of the three of us together at Ally Pally.

Dina is so funny, inspirational and just a joy to learn from. The first day was all about textures and layering, we worked on plaster tiles and book covers using rigid wrap. The rigid wrap is like plaster impregnated bandage, as it's quite messy we all went out onto the fire escape to wet the rigid wrap and apply it to our covers. What we didn't factor in to this was that it was blowing a gale at the time - just picture plaster dust, drips from watery plaster and bookcovers being whipped out of peoples hands and ending up in the carpark! I blame Dina, she had done a snow dance earlier and although it didn't snow then I do think she's responsible for the weather - they don't have winter where she lives :)

I loved this class too, playing with stencils, sprays and paint. I also bought Dina's book, which I would recommend to anyone interested in Art Journaling.
