We had a great time this weekend getting very messy with distress inks and acrylic paint, I think Sylvia may well find little splatters of paint for many months to come.
I thought it would be a nice idea to display some of the plaques the Hethersett ladies did, not all of them are fully completed but I think you can still appreciate them anyway. So here goes....
Firstly we have Margaret's creation which she is planning to put on display in her craft den. I love the colours she used and the big splats of paints, sorry I ever doubted your vision for this Margaret.
Next it's Barbara's creation which just needs the words adding. I think the little girl who is going to get this is going to love it, who doesn't love a cute fairy.
Next it's Vicky's creation. I love the colours on this one and the die cut words.
This is Vicky's card she made using the same techniques as the plaque.
Here we have Heather's plaque or it could be becoming a card for her sister in law. I am going to love this colour way as by accident Heather ended up using the same inks as my original plaque. I also love how Heather coloured the squares behind some of the letters, I would never have thought to do this.
Last but not least it's Pauline's creation which is going to be proudly hung in her newly decorated cloakroom that has a seaside theme. We had great fun trying to make the mermaid look less like she was hanging in mid air and I think the addition of the handmade sun really helps.
Thanks to everyone who came this weekend, sorry I forgot to take photos of the creations on Saturday. I loved everything you all made and I really hope you loved them too. See you all next month x
Hi everyone hope you all had a lovely Easter and that you all had loads of hot x buns, Easter eggs and roast lamb to eat ......oh I LOVE Easter.
Well on to this weekends projects we are doing cards at Aylsham and a plaque at Hethersett but they all use the same techniques which involve a LOT of MESS so have those gloves and aprons at hands if you hate getting covered in paint etc.....so here goes .......
Aylsham projects only - sorry only just realised that all the photos have a cloudy look to them think my camera lens needs cleaning
Card 1 Butterfly tag card
I have 2 colour ways for you but use any colours you fancy - the ribbon I coloured myself to match my butterflies
Card 2 - Messy background
This uses most of the techniques I used on the plaque because of the colours I used it turned out quite masculine hence the car but you could use the butterflies again if you prefer.
Hethersett only - this is a plaque to cheer Amy up whilst she does her upcoming GCSEs so you will want to change the wording - I would just google "inspirational words" and you should find something you like.
Hope you like these projects see you all over the weekend.
Fingers crossed the weather will be kind to us this weekend but please do watch the forecast and if we do get the bad weather we may have to postpone. I will post any postponement on the blog here so please do check before you leave home.
I am hoping we don't postpone as this month's project I really love even though it's not a card. So here is a picture of it
It looks even better in real life and to think it all started out as a simple piece of A5 Kraft card, of which I have plenty of stock.
I think on the supply list I missed of the following things:
Eyelets & setting tool - I will bring my crop a dile
