Cardinal Colours Retreat Part 2

Ok, now to the classes and projects:

I did 2 scrapbook layout classes with SJ, (she blogs at Little Musings)

The background is glazed bazzill, spritzed with chalk ink spray and then wiped off, sort of like a resist method.  Fabby!

The second one is a paper patchwork.  I just love the papers!!  And that heart punch, what a lovely fat heart!  Both of these Los, but especially this second one were interpreted very differently by each and everyone of us.  I like that the best, that we can all have the same inspiration and papers, but still come up with vastly different pages.  I have loads of paper left, and have already made another ‘paper patchwork’ page.cardinal colours retreat 005

I learnt how to use promarkers!  Linda and Lyn (blogging at Scrapology)  taught a brilliant class using these adorable Faye Whittaker stamps.  I actually bought this stamp as my brother and SIL have this painting in their house!

This fabulous pop up book is one of Karen Burniston’s paper engineering creations.  Thanks to a brilliant teacher (Angie) mine has turned out very well, and I am thrilled with it!  I’ll use it to put photos from this weekend in I think.

There were plenty of wonderful make and takes too.  Here’s my felt Christmas stocking (thanks Perdita), beaded pins (thanks Anita) and owl key ring (thanks Zoe).  So much inspiration, I’ll be trying out more of these!

Thanks so much to Gill and all her team for organising yet another superb weekend!

Love your layouts - I wish I had done those classes now but you just don't know until you get there which is going to be the best LOL!! Though I do adore my canvas that I did on the Friday.

The make and takes were great too - I did pins and the felt brooch - must get them blogged soon.
