After the excitement of being part of the launch of new stamps by a brand new designer, Elizabeth Borer, over on the PaperArtsy blog last night I now have something to share from my fabulous weekend away with a lovely group of PATwits and learning from the awesome Lin Brown.
As I'm so slow and always way behind the others, I never get time to take pics on the day so leave that up to my buddies Sam and Helen (they take better pics than me anyway, lol) but we had an absolutely wonderful time and Lin Brown is a brilliant artist & teacher (and a lovely hostess into the bargain) and I love making things under her guidance.
On the Saturday we made a beautiful Lin Pirella chipboard mini album. Lots of Fresco Finish paints, gorgeous Lin Pirella stamped images, stencils, colouring in with paints and/or pencils and it was fabulous! Of course, I nowhere near got mine finished and I didn't get chance till last night to do so but I've taken lots of photos to show you the lovely details. I had to change mine a bit when I got home because I realised I hadn't thought enough about which 'pages' were going next to each other and which of the smaller shapes were being attached to which of the larger ones so some of the colours were wrong and/or they were too busy. It doesn't matter though, just means it's not an exact copy which is good, lol!
Okay, off we go ........here come lots of pics!
The gorgeous front cover with my absolute favourite Lin Pirella image!
Inside front cover
The smaller page should have been attached to another page but the colour was soooo wrong, lol, so I made it into another mini page.
Opened out to show back and front covers.
So there you have it! I did enjoy colouring all those images with a mix of Fresco Finish paints and coloursoft pencils...... so relaxing!
On the Sunday we had a day playing with all sorts of different media onto tags none of which are yet complete but I'm going to have a lot of fun turning them into finished tags that I can show you another time.
See you again soon.
