GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came back and created.... I 'played' and came up with this.... Sorry, I didn't get photos of Pol's...next time.
I even stitched a border .... I have to say using Emma's stamps makes it an easy task, then I added a few of my own from WOW Embossing Powder, some grunge paste, embossing and stencils and .... TA DAH !!!!
My previous one today was this little gem...... I think I like circles LOL !!!
I'm working it in my Dyan Reavley book....nice thick pages :) 
Here we are showing our masterpieces, as taught by Emma and Paula

                                                  
This is my card using the Tonic goodies and the WOW Embossing Powder Stamps

It's a shame you can't see the pearliness going on...... Lush !!!

So I'll be getting my paints out more...good job I've got loads !!
As we all blow you a kiss goodbye......
Take care
Hugs
