Good afternoon all, hope you had a good weekend and that Monday is treating you well.
I had a busy time with Clarity Cumbria on Saturday and then the Stitches Trade show at the NEC yesterday,
It was so good to have a catch up with Barbara, Dave, Paul , Linda and the Clarity gang plus to see so many friends...far too many to mention...it really was a fabulous day. Thanks to Glynis and Claire for your company.
On Saturday we had a play day with the petite Gelli plates...
We started with the lace technique, this is so effective and I must thank our Barb for this...did you see her when she did it on tv?
Here is a closer look, I do love to use the charcoal pencils to add depth .
Look what the crafters made
After coffee and flapjack we looked at some techniques using stencils and the Gelli plates
Then after lunch it all got a bit fishy
Look at these
And Freda, look Lisa was top of the class as she added some fishing net to the side of her design , how fabulous..
..wish I had thought of that....
We were treated to special Birthday cake...thanks Penny...and Sheila had made us yummy cakes too,,,so we had tea and cake before our forth design..
We did have a couple of ' naughty table ' incidents which had us in stitches...but my lips are sealed..!!!!
After all ....what goes on in Craft club....stays in Craft club...
If you haven't used you Gelli plates yet , please do get them out and have a play...
They make the most fabulous backgrounds...I can't wait to finish this one..
I do love my workshop days and I have met the most wonderful ladies and gentlemen..It is such a great relaxed environment and a great place to learn new techniques. So if you haven't managed to ever get to a local class...I do urge you to join in...I am sure you will love it.
I have been making Groovi samples today , but I must admit , I have been a little bit tired...so I think I may just hang up my light panel and head for the shower..
Thanks for joining me...enjoy your evening and see you soon
Love and hugs
