Rochester March 2016 Workshop. Group Two - The Results.

Got Yer Sylvia!
Morning all... Sharing the Group Two results with you today.  I consider myself very lucky that such talented Crafters attend both of my Rochester Workshops. Not only talented, but kind and generous. Always willing to share their stamps and stuff with each other. And, at the end of each session I always get help to clean and clear the hall. All stars, in both groups, a pleasure to know you.  xx
Good to have Barbara Cleggett as a friend too, 'cos of her fantastic baking!
We did 'Mail Art' this month... look at all the beautiful Art Work.

Stunners ... every one!

Seth Apter Spellbinder Dies and Distress Crayons

Yo ! I would like to share this Canvas with you today. Some textured Watercolour card, primed with Distress Collage Matt Medium, before introducing the new Distress Crayons!  I used most of the fantastic Distress colours, building up the layers of colour slowly for the background.

 I'm also featuring  two of my new dies from Spellbinder, designed by Seth Apter.. I just love these dies called Drip Drop and Coffee Ring. I've used the Andy Skinner '' Quick Rust Technique'' to colour the die cut images.

You will be seeing a lot more of them, plus the four other die designs and some Seth Apter Stamps all available from Oyster Stamps. The Eye Stamp is from a  Studio 490 set by Wendy Vecchi.
Thanks for looking today, back soon .

Rochester Workshop March 2016 Group One - The Results

My Workshop last Saturday was a cracker!  We sang happy birthday to Hils, rejoiced with Margaret 'cos she had good news to share, welcomed some special visitors who had driven many miles and endured the M25! Plus, we all had a thoroughly good, messy, inky time... Only sad note was missing Debby and Gill, who have left us to begin some new adventures in Texas. Hurry over for some holidays soon you two!

 Mandy and Me!
Cannot wait until this Saturday when my Group two ladies will fill the hall with colour too! .. and Barbara's cakes!
Thanks for looking
