A LOVELY DAY WAS SPENT
AFTH yesterday for a workshop run by the lovely Kate of the Kathryn Wheel fame. It really was a wonderful relaxing day expertly taught by Kate. We made Kate's Tag Book which you can see on her blog and also on Dyan's web site. We made a couple of colour wheels to start with which is a brilliant idea to teach you which colours go with each other, then we spent the morning playing, experimenting with colour using the sprays, punching out mini shapes to use on the tags and then putting everything together using the sewing machineThe afternoon session was devoted to making a book with 8 tags cut from Tim's tag die and using the techniques we had learnt during the morning session. So we actually made 2 tag books, yipee! I am showing you one I have finished and the other is yet to be put together which I intend to do today after all the usual chores. Hey! I have more time now for crafting as I have given up my teaching job, handed in my notice this week and informed all the powers that be. Well you have to give up sometime or I could see myself still working at 80, NO WAY!
