Had a ...

... meet up with some fellow southern imag-e-nationers yesterday. We took over the Craft Barn workshop for the day. I'd met everybody before with the exception of 2 - Chris (Wellnifty) and her sister Dawn. There should have been one more new face, Carol (Cadge), but she wasn't able to make it as hubby had been called into work unexpectedly. Soooooo disappointed for her as we knew she'd been doing a countdown to the meet and had been so excited. We were all looking forward to meeting her as well. It was good to meet new faces (although not new names - lol!) and great to meet up with people that have now become 'old' friends ..... in the nicest possible way - lol! We do have a laugh when we meet up so we always have a good time, despite whatever we do by way of craft.













The classes weren't the best - or rather, the tutors weren't (badly prepared, particularly the first class and not an awful lot of tutoring) but we did pick up some tips and learnt a bit - me more from Jackie (the newest La Pashe design team member) than the tutors, LOL! First class was making backgrounds in batik style (and a card with one of them), using various mediums and the second was making reverse pyramid (and consequently basic pyramid) decoupage from our own stamped and coloured images. Useful to know how to do it but not sure I'd use it on own images. I got bored colouring so many images the same. Reckon Debs had the right idea - she left hers black and white, uncoloured and it was actually very effective ...

Thanks for dropping by .....
