It's been a while . .

Above is my nearly finished piece from a class I attended at the Craft Barn last Sunday with Sussex Girl, AKA Claire Boelema.  (Just need to varnish it)

The class was run by Andy Skinner, now I have some of his stamp sets but hadn't been to a class of his before. I really enjoyed it and finally after all these years and many attempts got image transfer to work, with Andy's tried and tested technique.

Now due to us creative luvvies not being able to decide what to do, choice of colours etc, we didn't manage to finish the piece on Sunday but had all the parts to do so at home.  So I have spent a happy week after work finalising various bits, loved Andy's technique for singing the edge of paper, unfortunately had to redraw the E on rejoice as it went up really quickly, LOL.  Also had a lovely picture to put in the hole but managed to ruin it, so had to search for a different image.  All in all a fabulous project a great class and some new techniques learnt.

Now this week I also had the luck to finally win some blog candy after many many years, I commented on JoFY new Christmas stamp range on Paper Artsy site, and won my choice of a mini and a set (Ichose the candle 08 and the hanging bauble set 06), cant wait to start creating with them for christmas, but still a wee bit early for me, maybe in two months time . .  LOL

So thanks for stopping by, hope all are well and enjoying crafty things.

I've been looking at everyone's shrines (?) from this class and am very envious. Everything about it is right up my street. Glad you had such a great time. xx

Hi Siobhan, long time no speak but I saw your creation pop up just before Claire's and thought I ought to come and say how lovely it is. Love the colours and the texture looks amazing. Andy is a great teacher.
