Well what an excellent afternoon I've just had.
A month or so back my forum friend Karin mentioned to me there was a workshop at the South Stamp Show in Worthing taken by Lin of LB Crafts which would cover the Ten Seconds Studio equipment. YESSSSSSSSS!!!!
So sitting at the table next to Karin from Chrysalis forum, opposite Crafty Trog aka Alison from UK Stampers forum with our little bit of kit we'd all been given to make the example with (I was very excited, talked way too much, sorry Lin), who should walk in but Helen Chilton who's also on the Craft Stamper DT with me but I've never met..
This is what we made...its a little wrap which reveals a metal frames paper Arsty image. Sorry re poor pics, the lights fading fast.
And then afterwards went off for (another) spend up at the stand. I also think Karin should be on commission as just when I thought I'd bought all I needed, I was talked into 'you have to have this' pearl metal.
REALLY enjoyed it.
Couldnt have done it without Dave sorting out the afternoon with the kids. xx
Heres the stash of crafty items I ended up getting.Lots of metally bits and pieces, crackle and stuff to alter.
If ever you have an opportunity to take any of Lindas classes I highly recommend it. It was the fastest hour ever.
I also met a friend of 'Crafty Trogs', Jackie, who had made a card using the technique I featured in this months Craft Stamper (a couple of posts lower than this- Branching Out). That was really strange meeting someone in real life that's read my article and actually was inspired to make something. I've experienced it online but never face to face, so thanks very much for showing me it was a wonderful effect using the fern.
I enjoyed every minute. I see now why people love workshops. That was my first one ever but certainly wont be my last.
Thanks girls for a wonderful afternoon.
