Odds and ends from the last few days

Good morning friends.
I hope you are all well. Behind the scenes I've had a busy week but not much to show for it that I can share now. It seemed to take forever to unpack from last weekend's fun, I really must learn to take less with me for these demoes! (Like that's going to happen....)
Then it was cracking on with some deadlines as well as garden duty. Yesterday I was at The Craft Barn for one of my journaling classes which are always good fun. Here's some of what was going on. Some of the regulars couldn't make it so the ladies had loads of space, and boy did they fill it!

 Some of the pages and projects in progress...

Other than that I've been having a play with my melt pot and taking inspiration from Kaz Halls tutorial HERE I made these

 However I used acrylic paints to age as well as adding some Treasure Gold in different colours to add more depth. I just love the fish; fiddle to do but so worth it.

I've been having fun with UTEE, Treasure Gold and paint onto embossed card too as you can see on the left; I'll be doing a tutorial on that soon as you've got to see it in reality so get the full impact of the depth!

Right, I'd better get cracking, still more deadlines looming. Take care everyone.
