WOYWW #366..Learning and Laughing...


Happy WOYWW to you!!

It is that time of the week when we pop over to join our leader Julia at her blog Stamping Ground for the global desk nosy.
She is still recovering from her op, so Lunch Lady Jan is still hosting us and doing a marvelous job.

My desk is a teeny bit dull after the excitement of the last 2 weeks.. Just my computer, my sippy cup, glasses, die pokey tool and a little pile of paper, cards and dies at the front of my desk. This little pile is something I am working on for a swap with Scrapbook Lynne...a fellow desker..

On Sunday I went to a great class taught by the one and only Dina Wakely (swoon), she is my new crush, she is awesome, hilarious and a great teacher.

Class was fun, as I sat with Cheiron, Jamey and Lisette (an unexpected surprise). I love these ladies, they make me laugh (out loud and a lot!), make me a bit braver in class and are just all round fun..needless to say margaritas and Mexican food followed...

Below is a little collage of my pages from class (and a pic of Moi and Dina)...

Here are a couple of pics of my finished pages, so you can see them in their entirety. We cut windows, so you could see each spread and Dina taught us a whole load of techniques, some of which were new to me..Like rubbing off paint using a baby wipe through a stencil - and my mind was blown!!

Warm spread, using 3 warm paint colours (pinks, oranges, purples)

Cold spread, using 3 cold paint colours (blues, greens, greys)
I'm off to London on Friday for a week, so no WOYWW for me next week - I schedule my posts when I am in London, it's easier that way.

See you all later for a nosy.

  12. Pretty papers on your desk at the ready for the next project. Great job on the journaling class. Fun pages! PJ #47

    1. I just wanted to pop back by and say that your idea of building a shelf for my paper holder was considered by hubby and I. Of course, his idea of it was cinderblocks and a board. He's not particularly handy. :-)

  13. lucky lucky you on a class with Dina! Hope London is kind to you next week and we lay on some sunshine for you! Helen #18

  14. Claire you SWEETIE! I am drooling over those bits of brightly coloured loveliness on your desk... you are such a TEASE! And I am green with envy that you are probably already in the air on your way to London, I will be stalking your blog to see WHERE you are and WHAT you are up to (grin). I am not sure if you will get your "little bit of me" before you leave for London, but it will absolutely be waiting for you when you return! Happy WOYWW Scrapbook Lynne #45
