Andy Skinner

Long time, no blog.  I'm afraid my COP is back and have now been told it will never go, so increased chemo and see how things go.  At least that explains why I've not had any mojo.  Anyway went to an Andy Skinner workshop at Craft Den yesterday and wowser, what a fantastic day.  He's so talented and shared so many tips with us, things I would never have thought of, so if you get a chance, I urge you to go on one of his classes.

We did a Cracked Secret Drawer Book...




I'm booked to go on two more and just so excited, can't wait.

Right I've got 2 circle journal, journals to do, so hopefully after the inspiration from Andy I should get them done today.


  1. So sorry to hear you've not been well and have to undergo more treatment. I hear such good things about Andy's courses, fabulous that you've been able to go. Love,Helen. xx

  2. Hiya Anne, sorry to hear that bad news, but love your book I did a day course with Andy Skinner last year, which used very similar techniques to your front page, keep meaning to contact him to clarify the process as have got an idea for some canvases for the house. Hope to go and see him again but the local course near me was on my birthday weekend, seems to be the theme this year as Dyan is coming south and thats on my hubbies birthday, grrr. Much love and wishing you better x
