Andy Skinner at The Stamp Attic

I am in love. It's true!  I went to Andy Skinner's gesso carving workshop at The Stamp Attic last weekend and as with his last class (Book of Secrets) totally fell in love with the technique we learned - I want to put it on everything! ha!

We worked on the front covers of hardcover notebooks/journals that we brought to class with us; this is my piece from the class:

...and this is a pic of all the books made in class - same technique and materials but all different :)

After class we met with lovely Wendy and Colin for a drink at the coffee shop next door, and were also joined by Sue Roddis who was at the class yesterday - fab to see them all!
Many thanks for a great day and class, and I'm looking forward to the next workshop I have my eye on at The Stamp Attic ;) 

p.s. I also posted my DT project at the Stamp Attic today so please go take a peek! Here's a pic from above just to keep you guessing ;)

Happy scrapping!

Oh wow, that's gorgeous!! I'm very jealous, one of my most important ambitions for 2013 is to take an Andy Skinner class.

Gorgeous look to the books... sort of like a modern version of medieval illuminated books - fabulous work! Andy has so many amazing tricks up his sleeve...

Gesso carving...what a neat technique. Your cover is reminds me of the artist Marc Chagall's work. xo Evie
