Weekend Workshops


Wow what a beautiful weekend we have had, I love the sunny weather, the birds singing, all the doors and windows open, it just feeds the spirit, just fab :-). As well as breathing in the sunny weather I was lucky enough to attend another 'Carol' from Krafty Pieces workshop it was hosted by Diane from Crafts and Candle Light. We altered a cheese box with gorgeous results and its circular so very apt for this weeks JFF challenge . I also made a tag for the JFF this week sees the start of a new months challenge and it is 'Circles' I used a tag and inked with DIs tumbled glass, bundled sage and worn lipstick and edged in walnut stain. I have been yearning to use the stamp (Tick Tock flowers) for some time and thought it suited the circle theme quite nicely so masked and stamped the tag. I painted the cogs with antique gold acrylic paint and then crackle accents. I also made a grunge flower but out of paper using the same stamps embellished a couple of the stamped cog centers with metal leaf flake to lift it and with a few beads. All very coggy really LOL. Thanks for looking and enjoy the week even if it does cool down.

Oh goody another steampunk type piece (tag). Love that background you have used - Tick Tock Flowers - not heard of it (who makes it please)?
I do like how you have coloured the whole tag in and used the various elements as embellishments - gives it a lovely 3 dimensional feel.
The cheesebox is lovely too.
Thanks for joining us at JFF this week. Hugs, Neet x
