Hels and Els - Classes with Wendy - Day 2

Hello again!

As if Friday didn't provide enough excitement.... Saturday morning we arrived at Queens Ink to take the first of three classes with Wendy Vecchi

As you know... Hels' friend Freckles has traveled the world getting up to all sorts of mischief... when we arrived in the morning, we found Freckles on Hels' desk all wrapped up like a babe in swaddling clothes... the lovely Janet had given him a little blankie for the night.... Here's Janet with her new UK baby...


Our first class was called "Do NOT Mess With the Queen" - how perfect for The Queen's Ink!  It's a small rectangle art part base, with lots of art parts elements and a big grunge flower - plus some clearly for art, too!  Here are some pix...




Great project to start off with.  We had a two hour break at lunch time, and during that break we discovered that Terry Horvath from Ranger was in the class too!  We sat in the sunny courtyard and ate our lunch together.  Hels and Terry attended Ranger U together in the Spring - what a nice surprise that they got to see each other again.


And after lunch we were off with class two, called "Inspiration Station".  For this class we used a large art part book cover and Tim's binder rings to make a hanging refillable notepad....





My friends Connie and Matty took this class with us, so after class we all went out to dinner together... it was great to introduce my friends to Hels - they fell in love with her, of course!


That's the wrap up from Day 2.... I'll be back again tomorrow with pix from the third class with Wendy... it was a BIG project and I know you'll love it!
