Dina day!

I have been lucky enough to attend at least one day (some times three!) every year for the last four years, Dina Wakley’s  art journalling courses held at Art from the heart.  This year was no exception.  I went to the ‘colour wow’ day. We learnt about analogous, complimentary and loads of other colour schemes. We got to play with her new vibrant gorgeous paints that aren’t out until April and new stamps.  As always, Dina showed us a new technique, reduction stencilling, which  you can find on her demos from CHA 2014 on utube . A day with Dina is a delight, she is funny, encouraging and helps you push your own limitations and believe you are an artist. She was the one who introduced me to using acrylic paints, which I love.

Dina’s example pages

I am really pleased with my attempts, Dina breaks everything down to easy to follow steps, that produce a result.

And a page from the lovely Sue with a message to us all! Sorry it’s a bit blurred. It reads ” You are enough, be kind to yourself”.

If you can’t get to a Dina day of your own –  her  on line courses are also excellent.  I will do the “Facing the facts” soon, to help me draw better faces.  So hope you can enjoy your own Dina time!
