Finally the late noon of October 4th was there... Time for Jolande van Oosterhout and me to jump in the car and drive over to Gent (Belgium) for a great weekend full of workshops.

Anna Dabrowska (a.k.a. Finnabair): "Splash" and "Industrial Broque".
Now "Splash" I really loved, but -as I told Anna after finishing the "Industrial Broque" workshop- I had a change of mind: I liked the "Splash" class and I loved the "Industrial Broque" workshop!
It was so great to create such a page. As some of you may know I'm very critical about what I make, but this really loved the page I made in this class. Sure, I didn't make it ton sur ton, but hey... that'll probably come when I'm working with these techniques at home.

Anna weren't enough, I had a third one planned the next morning: "Prima goes Inky". Just as all the other classes Jolande joined me. I'm so glad I was also part of this class, I wouldn't have want to miss it for the world.
In this class we made book covers for a journal.

Donna Downey, but I have to say that class was not my cup of tea. I guess I should've known better: paints and I don't really mix.
That evening Tanya Watts showed us how we could use Ranger's Colorwash, Distress Stains, Dylusions and Distress Markers.
Sunday, time flies...
We started of with a workshop given by Iris Babao Uy. She showed us how to make your own background on a layout by using all different kind of techniques.
Last but not least we went to a worksop given by Corinne Delis: "How to make Awesome Self Portraits". Well, I guess the title says it all. With just a little tips and trics Corinne showed us how to make self portraits. Yeah sure, you can make a self portrait without taking any class, but do you know how to make one without clearly seeing it is a self portrait and not use a tripod?! Well, now I can. Sure, I need just a little more practice to make it perfect, but I'll get there...
After Corinne's class it was time for us to hit the road back to the Netherlands. After dropping of Jolande at here place I headed for my own home sweet home meanwhile thinking back of the great weekend I've had and thinking of how to use all the techniques I've learned.
