Workshop 11th February 2017 - Fantastic Day!

Good evening and welcome back!

Oh my goodness, what fantastic results!  I though I would share a selection of the makes from this weekend's workshop!

This was the first time I had used the Boat House at The Gate Hangs Well, in Syston... they didn't warn me that it would be so blooming cold first thing!  Jules, Mark and I arrived nice and early to get set up to find that the heating needed turning on!  Perished we were! Note to everyone... don't forget your thermals!  With any luck the Landlord will remember to stick the heating on earlier for us (don't let the Chef light the fires tho!).

Our first make was using JOFY and Distress Inks... check these beauties out

What a beautiful variety!

The wall hangings are just stunning!

We used a range of different stamps for this project, but in the main, Tim Holtz Papillon stamps and dies.

Then back for another play with the JOFY stamps!

The results... bright and beautiful! 

and just check out the colours in this one, beautiful shading too!

Well, until next time....

WOW!  I just love um!  You guys rocked!

Don't forget the next workshop dates are:
25th February, 11th March and the 25th March.  Please let me know if you are interested!

I really do look forward to hearing from you, so please do feel free to leave us a comment below.

May your pinkies always be inky!

Love & hugs always,

Good evening and welcome to Create & Image's Blog!  We can't wait to share with you our workshop  details, our art work and everything else we come across along the way!

Yesterday saw our inaugural workshop, and from the feedback and bookings I've received today, I would say it went down very well!  I was joined by some very talented folk from the crafting circles I navigate every now and again, and they loved it too!

A few of us stayed behind to try the local fare they serve in the pub, The Gate Hangs Well, and I must say the fish and chippies were rather delish!

The next workshop is on the 25th February 2017, 10:00am until 4:00pm.  Please let me know if you would like to come along, it would be fantastic to see you!  Details can be found below...

We are also taking bookings for the 11th and the 25th March too, same details found above, but places are going quickly!

Over the next few days I will be posting our makes, and possibly a few cheeky photos of us crafting...

I really do look forward to hearing from you so please do feel free to leave us a comment below.

May your pinkies always be inky!

Love & hugs always,
