My Lesley Riley class

The class I took was entitled "How to grow wings". We made pages, and applied lots of transfers using TAP. (transfer artist paper).








Well - what do you think? I like the technique, however. I was a little disappointed that for the large amount of money spent, we only got a 10am to 4pm class and only got as far as colouring our pages.
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!

Carole :D

How fun to be able to take a class from Lesley Riley. I love your book - it is beautiful! How was it working with TAP? Which elements of your book did you use it? I have wondered about it, but haven't tried it myself.

LOVELY! Love all of the texture. Makes me want to hold and hug it. haha! My fave pages are the eggs on the music, your center spread of wings and birds with lettering and washy paint.

Makes me want to go make something.
