#365Challenge.... August

aaaah yes.. August... back when it was lovely, hot and sunny - and I created these pages for my Flow365 project ...

I'm not going to beat around the bush - I a 'little' behind schedule - but I WILL finish this project!! lol   so without further waffle.. I give you ...AUGUST!!



 

I really like the layering on this page - a painted background with layers of tape and papers sewn on, finished with a die-cut and self-adhesive letters.


 


I have a  sheet of this background paper for aaaaages - paper created by layering up tissue dress making patterns and instructions.. seemed appropriate to sew elements on to this page..


Stencilling white paint onto kraft card- what's not to like! lol



Pink and green - one of my favourite colour schemes... here I've cut up gelli printed flowers to mix with die cut flowers.. and more self-adhesive letters (I seem to have quite a lot of those to use up..)

Another lovely gelli print from a stack that needs using - anyone who gelli prints will have a stack (probably an ever increasing stack! lol) of these to use up!


     


 


 

 

 

The dates in the page corners have been created using a circle doodle from JOFY36 and the numbers are 'garamouche' by Purple Onion Designs...

There it is - August!! coming soon - but probably not too soon - will be September and October.

Christmas is coming!! ....

Last saturday I went to Loobi Crafts in Leighton Buzzard and taught my Christmas Blocks workshop... (it was a lovely, fun day - thanks to everyone who came along and created beautiful festive blocks!)

The class was overbooked and so its running again on the 18th November - with only a couple of places remaining - so if you'd like to come to this workshop and create this lovely (in my humble opinion) triptych of christmas blocks then call Lisa at Loobi Crafts (01525 838535) to book your place.

Look forward to seeing you!
