Workshop makes!

Good Morning Lovelies! I can't believe it been a week since I blogged?? I probably won't blog much this week either as in our beautiful seaside town this week is our annual "Folk Festival" it's a wonderful week of Morris dancing, folk music, a huge craft marque etc, not that I'm into the music or Morris dancing, but I love the atmosphere, literally tens of thousands of people from all over the world and country crowd our little town, but it's fab.

Anyway onto my post, I had the most wonderful crafty day yesterday at the wonderfully talented Eileen Godwins Workshop, such a lovely bunch of ladies, some fab Facebook friends travelled up for the day which made it really great day, was lovely seeing you again Barbara Daines and Elaine Maisey, the tea was flowing the sweets were nibbled and the wonderful cake made by Barbara Cleggett was munched and delish it was too, thank you all for a fab day. Here are my makes, I had to finish my last make which is the embossed card with gold gilt on it at home as I just ran out of time, I made my fairy one 3 times, I just wasn't happy with it, I'm still not really! But ho hum that's life!

 

My favourite is the gorgeous watercolour rose which was embossed onto watercolour card then water coloured with distress inks, I used Chipped Sapphire and Lilac, the background is Shabby Shutters, the fairies is Pan Pastels and versamark ink to create the swirls! The Baroque stylie one is a coloured backing paper embossed and heat embossed with clear EP then inked with Forest Moss DI and gilded with gold wax, I added the Tulle and butterflies when I got home to just finish it off. Thank you for visiting, have a great Sunday xx

Wasn't it a great day? I like your rose colouring. Got my bits to put on too. Thanks for detailing the embossing folder card - couldn't remember the order of works!! .Am going to try versamark diect onto the folder to see if that involves less paintbrush work ( Barbara D!!)
Hope to put onto my blog Mon/Tues to tell you.xx
