The bits and pieces here are what I'll be working with next. I'll possibly make a long thin card, I used lots of paint layers for the background then ran the top through the cuttlebug, dry brushing the raised areas with white acrylic. I love messing about with my paints.
The hearts were cut freehand and decorated with collage and paint techniques. I'll hopefully get something finished tomorrow.............................
I found a photo to add to the layout designed by Tracey at Running With Scissors. I would love to get confident at scrapbooking, so am looking forward to attending more classes to give me a feel for working on a larger scale.
Now for the giggle of the day. A good few years ago I was fortunate to meet Dyan Reaveley of Art from the Heart in Harrogate at a retail craft show. She was promoting her workshops and I was intrigued by the UTEE on CD's. Although Harrogate was a couple of hours away from Grimsby, I attended the class and was in awe at her creativity. Her work was inspirational and she had a fantastic sense of humour. The workshop was brilliant and I was soon hooked myself!!!! Since then we have remained friends and I have attended more of her fantastic workshops, including a couple of full weekends, which are a brilliant laugh!!! Myself and a couple of friends were at her studio recently at a Tim Holtz demo and hopefully will manage to get to a workshop or two soon.......................................
Well 'dear Dyan' has tagged me!!!!! I had to take a photo of myself as soon as I read that she had tagged me, without any 'tarting up' - yep, no hair combing, lippy adding, I couln't even add my false eyelashes lol. So to keep Dyan happy, here's the photo. Not central, I know, but it's just as I was after my tea time bath, in my old faithful fluffy dressing gown. Thanks for this Dy I owe you one!
Now I have to tag some of my fellow bloggers. Unfortunately I don't know how to add links so, I will have to hope you can visit their blogs by searching for these poor souls who I have decided to 'pick on' using these blog names...............
sorry ladies, but it's all good fun lol
