A Day with Lady Dy, Queen of Journals

I had such a fun day yesterday at the Scrapbooking Studio in Moline Illinois. Dyan Reaveley was there to teach two classes and I took both. I learned so much I just can't tell you what a great teacher she is. I have a ton of ink on paper and some pages in process I would like to share with you. We did so many wonderful techniques my mind is just racing. I have plans to help a friend today but will want to get back to my journal this evening. This is so addicting.
 Be forewarned, this can become habit forming. 

First I had to find the right outfit to wear. I decided to decorate a shirt with Color Wash and use some of Dyan's fun stamps. This is Petunia in the flower patch. Of course, I was teachers pet! Right Dy? I did hear you say it.

I need some flesh toned paint to finish Petunia off correctly.
 I was so out of time.

Lovely words to live by, don't you think?

The queen and her court

Of course I had to take my Color washed and stamped 
shopping bag and CC101 apron with me
 so I was fashionable attired.
So these are some pages in progress from my fab day out.
As Dyan says,'You can't walk on water if you don't get out of the boat".

Well let me tell you, this is way out of my comfort zone.
 It was sink or swim.

I know I have a voice, but what am I trying to say?

Fun stained glass effect with Dyan's new stencils.

Well Bloggers, that's it for now.
I am off and running for the day.
