Dyan Reaveley is such a lovely, lovely person! Very talented, yet not in the least diva-ish. Full of energy, yet still more than willing to take time to explain things for the second (or third!) time! Lol
She made the entire weekend a pleasure, from start to finish.
Here is what we made .......
First of all, a lovely 'SMILE' mobile/ wall hanging. This was much bigger and better than I expected and is made using Cosmo Cricket 'Love Notes' papers, which are in colours I really like!
Next, we learned how to make gorgeous backgrounds using dye inks and water. Great fun! We made these backgrounds into ATCs .....
We also made this funky Christmas Tree, using Blonde Moments papers ......
The colours wouldn't be anything like I would have picked, but it works and I'm sure the kids will love it! :)
This is a wee Blonde Moments accordion book, which we decorated with 7 Gypsies papers and stickers. I love his one!
We also made this fabulous mirror, which taught us how to do various techniques such as crackle effects, triple embossing, painting with Perfect Pearls and altering.
This will definitely take pride of place in my craft room - especially because I used photographs of Aaliyah and Saffron on it!
Finally, we made this waterfall book. Again it uses papers and colours that I would never have dreamt of using, but I really like it! lol
I was so inspired by the technique mirror (which used 3" x 3" tiles, that I have made a minibook and decorated thecover, this time using 1.5" x 1.5" tiles. I have to admit to being quite proud of it!
Now I just have to decide what to put in it!
More tomorrow - all being well!
