Hi Everyone, how's this weather suiting you? Personally, give me a nice clear, still, frosty day anyday. I really don't like this heat as it makes everything such an effort I find. Sorry about the whinge, I'm obviously getting old, Lol!
Well, I promised to post photos of my makes at two workshops I've been to recently. The first one was at the beginning of the month while I was away with my crafting buddies and we took in a workshop with the lovely (and she is) Linda Elbourne at LBCrafts. If you don't already know her blog and like anything Tim Holtz, Grungepaper, Distress Inks and Wendy Vecchi then you ought to give her fabulous blog a visit here. Not only is she very talented but she is also extremely funny and we came away from her workshop with a lovely piece of artwork and some memories of a great time too. We also bought loads of goodies from the wonderful shop, LBCrafts, owned by another lovely lady, Linda Brown.
Making this canvas hanging involved techniques such as stamping onto tissue paper and Grungepaper and making the Grungepaper roses which I love. We also made the little black hearts using the Melt Pot and UTEE.
The second workshop I went to this month was at Graphicus with the equally lovely and talented Lynn Robinson-Hunter when we made some articulated tags. These were what I call Classy Grunge, lol, and again used a lot of Tim Holtz favourites. We should have made a total of three but ran out of time. We didn't quite manage to finish two but brought all the goodies home with us and I've completed the two that were nearly done. The third one will be made as soon as I have finished a couple of other urgent projects.
This tag involved an image transfer onto Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Backed Canvas as well as making the paper flowers.
I thoroughly enjoyed both these workshops and can't thank Linda and Lynn enough for such fabulous workshops.
I hope to be back in a couple of days to give you a sneak peek of my project for this month on the blog I share with my crafting buddies, Craft Stamping Quartet. It was a project I thoroughly enjoyed doing and I'm really pleased with the finished piece.
Have a good week all.
