Artsycrafts Weekend

Last weekend I was lucky enough to go to Artsycrafts in Warrington, organised by Lin from L B Crafts and Leandra from Paperartsy.  The organisation was great and I met some lovely people and generally had a fabulous, messy time. This is what we started with:
This is what mine turned out like by the end of the weekend:
The photo has made the stamping look a bit wonky, but it's not QUITE as distorted as that in real life! :-)
We also played with terra and ferro paints on a mail slider:

I think I'm going to add some more metal and stamping to this later.
Finally we decorated a small tray with metal, paint, glimmer mists and tiles:

We learned loads of techniques and the whole weekend just flew by.

Brill photos Anne. Told Linda you were thinking of going to NP - so glad to get your comment. Tried to persuade Paul to go.

oooo lovely. Looks like you had a great time.

Haha I had a look at the retreat but not quite my thing :)

These creations are wonderful. They look as if you had a great time getting messy and arty.

As for where I got my stamps? A certain friend of mine whom you've recently been sitting next to at a certain arty retreat bought them back from America for me. I'm blessed with brilliant friends.

Looking forward to seeing you at Harrogate & catching up on the gossip :D Pxx

Fabulous projects Anne - so glad to hear you had a good time - I remember Linda, I used to go to her stall in Milton Keynes and then her shop in Olney when I lived in Bedford - does she still have it? - I am talking 15 years ago though so things may have changed.
