Distress With Extra's...

...cor blimey, Wednesday already!  I don't know where this week has whizzed off to, I have just had two days off and I spent most of the time asleep! I think the Manflu from last week has wiped me out!  No more Moomin Mamma, thankfully, the old schnozzle has gone back to the normal size... phew!  Anyways, I spent a wonderful weekend in Telford at Crafty Bunch, teaching lots of lovely ladies all about Distress Inks and techniques you can use them for... and at the same time, they made a lovely piece of bespoke wall art using a Kaisercraft MDF frame.  Here are some pics of the creation I made for the sample:



I won't go into detail how we made the creations as it wouldn't be fair to the ladies who came to play... I can tell you the colours I used are Antique Linen, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans.  And yes, purple again!



Today I am mostly unpacking all the boxes from the weekend - told you I had been lazy! - and then I have this creation popping around my head that I want to make before I forget what I am wanting to make (yes, that happens regularly.. .I even have a little book to sketch things into and forget to use that too!)  



Hope you all having a goodly week.... thanks for looking, TTFN

Love the creation Hels. Looking at your classes list may I ask if you ever come to the south of the country? I live south of London in Kent and never seem to get the opportunity to see you. Willing to travel, but closest seems to be Coventry and full! Glad you feel better, Valerie

Love this creation - now just need to book you to show me how it is done. I am saving my pennies for your workshop in Hessle in a few months time. Glad you are feeling better as it give me hope that my cold might not last long. Off to pop a couple more pills, Take Care.
