I did get to go to the Eileen Godwin workshop at our local craft shop on Saturday, and a great time was had by all.I'd booked it as soon as I got the email about it, quite a few months ago, as Eileen is a lady I've wanted to met for some years. When I first started blogging, around 10 years ago now(!), Eileen was one of the first, if not the first, person to leave me a comment, and has always been very encouraging to me.
She's as lovely and friendly as she looks, and made the workshop great fun.
Group photo here, a bunch of smashing crafters, and got to meet a couple who had been Facebook friends for a while, so it's great to meet in the flesh.
These are the days projects- the first one using Brushos in a very controlled way, which surprisingly, can be done. I think the fairy one needs something else stamping, as she looks to me as if she's reaching out to something. Maybe an animal she's going to stroke, or some flowers to pick? Not sure yet.
The second pair used Distress Oxides onto a craft mat then spritzed with water, and watercolour cardstock dragged through.
Both my projects still have to be made into finished cards, with some matting and layering, but I deliberately left that bit till I got home,as I have so much cardstock, it will be great to use some up!
So thats me done for this week, short and sweet. I've had an appointment arrive today to see my original surgeon at the QE on Thursday, so we should get some idea of whether they want to look at this skin flap, or if they think it's healing up fine.
