Went to AFTH on Wednesday to take a workshop with the extremely talented Kate Crane, I feel so lucky to live near enough to go to Dy's and enjoy a day of creativity and total relaxation. Kate is a superb teacher and spends time explaining things thoroughly and she certainly was generous with her ideas. In the morning we made 6 tags, inking, spraying, cutting sticking, yet get the idea, and this was mine...
The tags are joined together with hessian and backed with old book pages.
In the afternoon we made a similar tag book, but with more pages, and I used different colours. That is still a work in progress, but I really will complete it.
I'm down in Essex at the moment but did manage to take the photos, and a couple of others which I'll blog over the weekend. Had to go and buy a portable card reader this afternoon in order to download the pictures and guess what I and my granddaughter Charlotte had to go past? Yes, a craft shop, so she bought some papers, rubber stamps, rub ons, and when we got to the check out she got out her purse because she wanted to buy the goodies herself, it came to £16.10 and when she opened her purse my heart nearly broke, so in the end she paid the £6.10 and I paid the rest. I treated her to a Crop-o-Dial because she's really into crafting. When we got into the car, I said to her "Now I'll tell you the first rule in crafting....we don't tell Granddad how much we've spent". She nodded and said it would be our secret, bless.
