High Legh Class results.....

Good Afternoon everybody!!!

Firstly Apologies for my lack of blogging the last 10 days - I have had a few days away from crafting to recharge the batteries and have been working on commissions and projects I am unable to share just yet!! So Sorry :-)

Anyway on Saturday I took a class at High Legh Garden Centre nr Knutsford.

We were working on creating our own backgrounds and then making them into cards....

We started with something super easy.......

....Textured acrylic onto Kraft using natural sponge.

Then we moved onto acrylic resist on Pearl card with over stamping in Archival inks...

I love all the totally different effects everyone got just from the initial technique :-) We then got REALLY messy with some distress paint marblin and dry embossin followed by sandin.

Then...... WELL he he lol!! I took everyone out of their comfort zones he he! I made them wield a brayer with lots of neon paint.....

This technique is courtesey of Ellen Smith Vargo using her Stamps for PaperArtsy (cant wait for the new ones to land this week!!!) 

Then in the afternoon.......and avoiding the Monsoon that even the Indian continent would have been proud of we used our backgrounds to make lots of cards!!

We had a lovely day - was so nice to have my first "international" visitor to class - Scott, all the way from Vancouver :-)

I really hope you like what you see and you can join us for our next class at High Legh - Sunday 13th July 10 - 15.30 - we'd love to meet you!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by....

Have a great evening
