As for my absence ...... Wynneth arrived on Friday afternoon and we chatted, laughed (long and hard - Wynneth's mascara quickly made her in to an Alice Cooper lookalike!) and crafted. Anyone else ever used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board? Hmmm
Anyhoo, we dined out at the fabulous Rising Sun where my sticky ribs were piled so high on the plate there was NO CHANCE of dessert!!
Yesterday saw me meeting up with a group of crafting friends .... we met at Snazzys in Swindon, for a private workshop entitled "The Queen of Art" - a mixed media project..... well, actually, we met at the outlet village about 1½ miles away (for a brief shop (mostly at the Cadburys shop!) and lunch beforehand). We were pretty spread out, coming from Cornwall, Essex, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire!! - but it was a great chance to craft together and to try a different venue. Of course, there were photo opportunities, SOME of which I am happy to share with you!
|Wynneth hard at work|
|Works in progress! Who looks guilty then?!?!??!|
|L-R: Lauren, Debs, Wynneth and me!|
|Four crazy crafters with their finished projects!|
- Black card, white card,
- Die cut frame (I think it may have been sizzix) and alphabet
- Images by Dark Room Door (playing cards)
- Unknown crossword image and alphabet stamps
- Hero Arts definition of ART image.
- Shrink plastic (for the joker .... I had to have three goes at this because I forgot the hole in the first one, the 2nd one did what shrink plastic likes to try and so did the 3rd. Although I DID succeed in flattening the 3rd by far the best was indeed the 1st so I hit it with a crop-a-dile to punch a hole - VOILA!)
- Playing card and crown charms
- Jump rings and chain to hang our project
- Embossing folder for the white card
- Treasure Gold in white fire - to highlight the letters, frame, joker edges and embossing
- Distress Inks in antique linen and vintage photo
- Versafine inks in black and red, applied with an ink duster
- Embossing pen and clear embossing powder (to protect the ART panel)
- 3D foam pads
- Brown brads to attach the art panel
I added a Recollections "splatter pattern" image (using Memento rich cocoa) when I got home
|A little shopping!|
Have a fabulous Sunday, me? I'll be trying to catch up on what I missed today - may be back later!Saturday challenge from Simply Less Is More is "A Card for Jen" as it was her birthday yesterday.
- 5" x 7" white, 300 gsm scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
- My new JOFY JM20 lovebirds stamps (cut to separate) stamped on to a white card off cut using Memento rich cocoa
- Inkylicious foliage for these birds to sit in, stamped using Versafine onyx black and highlighted with CG1 spectrum noir

And, over at Pan Pastels, their new challenge is "Lots of Layers" - I think my Queen of Art should be perfect for that, don't you? I hope the peeps at P.P.'s will think so too
