Learn Something New Every Day

To day has been a great day. First class was to make these lovely flowers out of beer/coke cans. Petals were dye cut and we coloured them with alcohol inks, once the ink dried we could then stamp them with an alcohol based pad. embossing the underside to give the texture then curl the petals. These are held together with a brad and lifted up on circles of chipboard to keep the curls from getting squashed.

second class was a minibook which I have used to add lots of the photos taken on Rufus's 2nd birthday at Bristol Zoo. I'll share that another day, finally we did a sketch challenge and again I'll share this when the light is good enough to take a decent photo
It is now gone midnight so I'll sign off for now

I love the layouts (cards? pages?) you put them on.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
