A Wet Weekend in Wales at Wendy's Workshop.



Roy and I visited Wendy and her husband for the weekend, unfortunately altho' we had a good saturday morning weather wise the rest was pretty grim - but - a very wet sunday meant we didn't feel at all guilty spending the day in the craft room (we wouldn't have felt guilty if it had been fine come to that). We had a great time playing with metal, I hadn't done much of this before as I have no tools, so, under instruction, I was able to put together a wall plaque using Ten Second Studio metal and tools in addition to my cuttlebug embossing folders, I love the result. We then covered a mini canvas with embossed metal , added an embossed word, a sizzix die bookplate and punched flowers, the turquoise colour was alcohol ink. After working in Wendy's wonderful new craft room I have returned home to my room that, at present, is best described as a tip - so - no crafting until it's tidy again!!

I love what you have done here Maureen. Anything with tag shapes, script and celtic scrolly bits gets my vote and the piece on canvas is great too.
