This weekend saw a few friends meet up in York to say goodbye and good luck to a good friend who is moving to the other side of the planet to work in New Zealand. If you are wondering why their is people walking around in chain mail and horned helmets, it was the the annual Viking festival which I would recommend to anyone that is anywhere near or planning a holiday to the UK, it happens every year in February and included a rampage of warriors through town, lots of hand crafts, live battles and re-enactments and ends with a grand finale of a traditional Viking burial, ie: set a boat on fire and float it off down the river. Amazing festival rich in history.

Unfortunately I had an accident and lost all my pictures on-line and off line.
So Thursday afternoon saw myself, my Mum and Gill heading to Art from the Heart all of us like giddy teenagers in anticipation of a fabulous class. I must admit I got alittle worried that I had hyped myself up too much and it wouldn't live up to my expectations but I was wrong, it exceeded my expectations!
As promised to the lovely Laurel I gave Tim her tag she had made for her 31 day featured artist challenge. Here's Tim with the tag, he loved it!
Now the project!
The project was a book made with Wendy Veechi art parts book covers, sticky back canvass by Claudine and lots of metal charms and fragments. The book is covered with the enamelled kraft paper and colour with the distress stains. Here is Tim's Book. I only took pictures of a couple of pages as they were the only ones decorated.
The time flew by and before we knew it 4 hours had gone! Tim is a fabulous teacher and quite eager to help anyone that was having a problem. He made lots of jokes and made the whole experience fun. I am very glad I went!
My tortie cat Stumpalina trying to drink dirty paint water. (No she didn't want a drink, she liked the smell and its the first thing she does to when she comes in this room, she is really quite a bit obsessed with it)
