What a terrific weekend we've just had with Hels Sheridan. We made two outstanding projects, I love them both. There was 17 of us and we all did our own individual take on Hels instructions. The results were amazing, so many wonderful FINISHED projects. Yes we all finished our projects, which is very satisfying when you arrive home with something finished to look at.
We really were very productive considering all the belly laughs and the off-crafty-topic conversations we had! A huge thank you to Sue Tucker who organised the whole thing like clockwork. :)
Here we're all are engrossed in painting our canvases.
Here's Gemma, Tracy (me), and Helen.
There's Lou in the middle, probably looking for the Bora Bora PaperArtsy Fresco Paint! We kept
stealing it sharing it with each other all day.
Naughty Sam holding up
her probably someone elses canvas background! You gotta keep your eye on this one or she'll be licking, sniffing and stroking your make if she likes it better than hers!
Tracy working on her gorgeous canvas.
Helen rubbing treasure gold on the edges of her lovely bright canvas.
From front to back: Sue, Jane and Joan all with goldfinger's!
From front to back: Debbie, Jane, Gemma, Helen and Lou (still on the cadge!).
From front to back: Donna, Susie, Janet, Sam, Joan and Jane. They were a noisy lot on that side, sheesh!
Can't take em anywhere! Joanne was on the end, but she's not in the shot.
Sue Tucker got all adventurous with my camera and did lots of tilted pics. This is one of them, but I straightened it in Photoshop. Love the way some people are leaning over to the right, as if that would make a difference! I just love everyone's expression on this pic, it summed the weekend up really.
Full of fun.
Hels looks ashamed though :), we were all like naughty kids!
Hels made each of us a little bag with a name badge in and some die cuts. It was such a nice touch, I loved it.
I'll use the name badge forever now, Thank you x
Here are the two projects I made :)
The edge got in on the action too!
This project uses TH burlap panels. Love these panels.
It's very Tim tastic with lots of die cut elements, Distress paints and Idea-ology.
Well if you've got this far then you deserve a well earned cup of tea and a biscuit to keep your sugar levels up! Thank you for popping along and reading my blog post.We had such a great time on the workshop, and I think we're all pushing for a repeat performance very soon.
Have fun in your crafty space, Michelle xxx
