March Workshop

They arrived, ready to take on everything I could throw at them...

Not one project, but two...

At the same time! 

The results were amazing! 

My goodness, they look fantastic! 

After lunch, we cleaned away the ink, paint and ribbon.  We got out our pencil crayons, courage and black card...

I'm sure they thought I had lost the plot.  I took them through the stages of drawing a bubble or two. They continued to follow my instructions despite their misgivings, then the magic happened...

We had bubbles, lots and lots of bubbles! 


The bubble technique was used to add the finishing touches to the last project...

A magical combination! 

Well done everyone! Beautiful work! 

The next workshop...

Great news on the venue front... it's warm, bigger, has its own kitchen, parking... just about everything we could ask for!  Straightforward to get to (A6 Loughborough).  I will pass on the full address to those interested.

New Lavinia Creative Challenge - March 2017 Colour, Sparkle & Bling!

Good morning and welcome to the start of a New Lavinia Stamp Challenge - March's Challenge theme is Colour, Sparkle & Bling!

So, please don't forget that the winner of the Lavinia Stamp Challenge will win a £40.00 voucher to spend in Lavinia Stamps web shop, and my goodness me what a choice the winner will have!  There's  stamps and SVG Cutting Files and all kinds of exciting goodies!

Just how excited am I?  Oh my goodness me, I was blown away to be asked to join the Lavinia Stamp Design Team!  I'm just so very happy to be part of such an amazing team of people!

Without further a do, I am really pleased to show you my first two card designs for this months Challenge Colour, Sparkle & Bling...  Now those who know me, it must be really funny to see that my very first samples are covered, yes blooming well covered in that nasty shiny stuff, glitter!  I do have an aversion to all things glittery and I swear it brings me out in a funny rash every time I get any where near to it... I am currently undergoing sparkle therapy with two of my wonderful friends, Eileen Godwin and Pauline Butcher, both of them tell me that it's OK to sparkle and that in fact it actually enriches your life...   If you can mix it with watercolour, then I guess its OK with me too (just this once!)

See... more sparkle than I'm used to using!

Now don't forget to add your entry to the Lavinia Facebook page by clicking HERE.

I can't wait to see what you make and just how much glitter and bling you can get on a project! :D  Good luck!

Thank you for dropping by,  please do leave me a message.

Crafty loves and hugs,
