Hi there everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. I did.......
On Sunday I taught a class at The Craft Barn. This is what we were doing
Quite a bit of measuring and trimming involved in addition to all the ink and stamping. Then we looked at triple embossing with trapped highlights and adding texture to the gears.......

I love doing these classes and seeing how everyone achieves a different look and feel to the same project by varying the colours, images and placement!
It was great fun! My next class on Sunday the 11th September still has a couple of places left; we are playing with alcohol inks mainly as well as some other inks to decorate a tag book and tin. Details are here.
After the class I picked up the wife and family and we popped over to visit some friends and had a lovely evening together.

I also received a parcel from Bella in the post. She sent these lovely tags as well as a lovely card and some lovely little tickets and flowers! Thank you Bella, they are brilliant and will be added to my wall of inspiration for me to enjoy.

Right, I'd better be on my way, I'm helping my daughter make flowers and stuff today. She's made a sketchbook already for her textile work and the first lot of flowers are drying as we speak.
Be blessed in your art today.

Wow this is a spectacular calender and I love the tags. Hope you have fun making flowers with your daughter. Not that you'll need any help, but I have quite a few flowers tutorials on my blog if your daughter wants a wee nosey. Have a lovely day. Lee x
