Anyway talking of Artsy Craft in normal late style I thought I would share some picks of the event with you and tell you how brill it was. Lots of lovely people and Lin & Leandra were alright too (well, went we weren't been frog marched around - I was starting to think we were at boot camp when the cuttlebugs were needed!!!)
The first project was called Secret Garden and this was great fun to make.
We were asked not to show full photos or give full descriptions so here are a few pics to wet your appetite. We decorated a canvas layering up as we went and used some of the new Hot Picks from Paper Artsy (1004 and 1005) for the background and texture paste to decorate a tree.
This is a photo taken during the process but we ended up with various metal embellishments adorning the tree and surrounding area from the Flora and Fauna stamp sets by Paper Artsy. I love all of the stamps, but particularly set 2 and 3 which have a really cute hedgehog and owl on them.
All in all it was a fab weekend and I met or caught up with some great people. If you haven't been I suggest you pop over to LB Crafts or Paper Artsy and book for October, but not until I have my place secured thank you very much!
Thanks Lin & Leandra and not forgetting Jo Firth-Young (the Cuttlebug Guru), Linda Elbourne (Tim Holtz' stalker) and Karen Daniell (the Queen of shops - forget Mary whatsername!)
