The Mrs B Weekender At Hope and Elvis: The Sunday!

On the Sunday at Hope and Elvis we were playing with art journaling and monoprinting.
I'd never taught this workshop before, so I was nervous and giddy all at the same time.
I hope the lovely folks liked their jars of arty provisions and sweeties (both equally as essential to the creative process!)
My lovely Mum and Jean from across t'road had been baking for Britain and so there was still plenty of cake to go around.
I would just like to say at this point that, as like most workshops, I feel as though I hadn't taken enough photos, and I know that I haven't done justice to the beautiful art that was produced.
The time went by so quickly that I am sorry I haven't photographed everyone's work.
Please forgive me ladies.
I love this photo of Miss Sam and Miss Debs, Queens of all they survey...

I think that everyone had had their three Shredded Wheat for breakfast!
I love it when the room is filled with colour and is buzzing with energy.
It was amazing to see real acts of creative bravery, stepping out of comfort zones and just playing.
Beautiful journal pages began to emerge...
And even the scrips and scraps on the tables began to take on a life of their own...
And then the lace trolley came out!
Dinner, as always, was wonderful, just look at those colours!
I couldn't capture everything to show you, as one beautiful and unique piece was produced after another.
Many thanks to Louise, Sam, Di Tinker #lacetrolleydolly , Miss Debs and Magie for all your help and general ace-ness.
(And cheers Di and Sam for lending me some photos.)

Would you like to make a comment chuck?
I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
