The first is from a class by Vanessa; I was horrified to hear that we had to punch holes in our photos...... HOLES IN PHOTOS!!!! I started to get very nervous about doing this, but actually its a fab technique that I have already used again, so thankyou Vanessa!!!
The colours were also a little out of my comfort zone as I tend to be a bit "pink" and rarely use primary colours, but I'm pleased with the end result & its so nice to try new things;
The Second class was Nat's and this really pushed me as I had to do lots of sewing (yes I really did sew!). I havent finished it yet so will blog it later once I have. However, it did involve making a cute little felt owl, which was bagged by my DD Tigs as soon as she saw it, as she is in Owl class at school. Mads then proceeded to have a huge tantrum as she wanted a hedgehog as she's in hedgehog class.
So I had a go and was told they had to be stuffed toys.... omg!!!
Tigs was over the moon with hers:
Mads however, looked at the sorry excuse for a hedgehog & said "oh well at least you tried Mummy"!!
Ha ha! you can see her point!!! THIS is why I do not sew!
On the Friday evening we could all participate in a sketch challenge and this is my effort:
Note that I actually used brand new stash that I bought from the shop; lush Sassafrass papers & blooms etc, very unlike me not to save & stroke!
On Sunday I was delighted to find out that the lovely DT voted me runner up!!! I won some gorgeous MME Lush goodies:
Next was a gorgeous class by Claire, using some of my favourite papers from Websters & misting, another of my faves :)
I just loved this class, the intricate cutting is soooo up my street!!!
Then we had a class with the lovely Liane which used some really pretty papers; Dear Lizzie from AC & some lovely paper lace, again it was different for me, I was desperate to distress more & ink!!!
Finally a LO of my own that I did during the cropping time on Saturday (in between several games of bingo; Tracy was the caller & had us all in stitches when she kept getting fits of the giggles!)
I stayed up till 3.15 finishing this & I wasnt the last to bed!!! Another of my purchases used here; more Sassafrass. I also used an Inkadinkadoo stamp & the little picket fence is a digi download from Websters that I think I will be using lots more of!
I'll blog the other LO's when I've finished the one from Nat's class later this week, but for now:
