Altered Book Class

Evening All,
One again I haven't blogged for over a week, slap my hands. I have been so busy in the shop, helping prepare for Toms show tomorrow at 12 on Create and Craft, crafting myself, house hunting and also addicted to reading the Hunger Games. Another good excuse is I have had no internet access at home as my laptop was being used to save all my photos before the drive broke, so be prepared to be inundated with scrapbook pages and mini books. It is my gorgeous nieces 16th at the weekend so I don't have long to make her book.

Back to craft......on Saturday in the shop we had Annette Lee teach an altered book was a very intense class with lots of patience and new techniques but WOW the results were amazing....

Everybody was busy all day, sorry to the others at the other of the table, I didn't realise I missed photos of you :-(
Texture paste!

Start of Karens the colours she used.
Also love the pink tones on here... Can you believe this effect was baby wipes...

Stamping on tissue paper....
Sams book progressing.....

I love how Karen cut the pages until she came to the stunning map on the background. Karen brought her book in today and the blues and silver are beautiful..very eye catching.

On Monday a long awaited order arrived......Smash Books and accessories, half the stock sold before I could get it out of the box............

...even Mo was converted into the Smash Book Gang!!
Lots of accessories...really pretty in real life.
Today Jaynes daughter, Bridie, was off school due to the flooding so she came into the shop for an Art lesson not only did she join the Smash Book Gang but she was also working on her own altered book..I honestly thought Jayne had made it....WELL DONE Bridie....

so what do you think of that? I think she has done an amazing job...she obviously takes after her Mum in the artistic department as Jayne brought in her book to show us her wow wow....

And finally I would like to say thank you to Nora for knitting me these stunning baby booties when she has so many other things to be doing, I don't normally post my baby things but I was so touched by these. I have had so many gorgeous knitted clothes, socks and booties made I am overwhelmed by them. Nora asked if I was superstitious about receiving baby items before the baby is born, everybody in the shop laughed as the upstairs is more like a baby nursery now...all I need is baby furniture and a peugeot of Joan and we are  completely ready for the I will leave a picture of the gorgeous booties.....(I'm only sucking up because she is knitting me some baby ugg boots lol)....

Thanks for taking the time to read..

  2. It was a really good day, I definately got in the zone but I was so impressed with Jayne's book I love a "full Story" but I agree with you Sue they were all really lovely - its great to sit with other crafters because you pick up so much from people doing things in different styles. When in the follow on class then? Sam
