Workshops Updated

The workshop list has been updated, just press the workshop button at top of the page.

Georgina has organised the dates until Christmas, except I just deleted the Spooky Card dates (Mouse aka Tally is competing in London with the Syncro ice skating team - family support needed), so if any one wants to make Halloween Cards just let us know and we can arrange an alternative date.

Bookings can be made for the workshops by telephone 0114 2786314 or give us an e-mails on dorrie@sheffieldboats.co.uk

Happy crafting.

Dorrie says

That I must take photos when I completing a project so I can post how it's done. I know I should but I get into the zone and the project completes it's self before I even think to get the camera out.This time the camera was placed next to me I managed a few photos of my latest journal page while in progress. I used black gesso to cover the page and then wanted to use some old rub ons from my stash.

I added the rub ons top left and right and bottom right of the page.

 I had a quote about dreams that I wanted to use.I tried writing it with a white paint pen twice but didn't like it as I felt that it was too thick, I gessoed it out and the third time I used a white gel pen, which I liked better, Re-gessoing the page made a different background effect from where I started sort of like a blackboard that has been wiped clean, which I quite like.  

I then used a white pen and silver pen to outline some of the flower rubons and added a couple ore rub ons to complete the page.

Until next time happy Crafting from

Journal page

It seems a long time since we posted on this blog. We are in our summer workshop break and I am suppose to be updating the Autumn workshop list, but I am skiving and playing with journal pages it really helps to restore my mental wealth. The page below has remained unfinished in my small journal since June, but I think is now finished. I was playing with distress paint and thinking of different ways to apply it. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the background when I completed hence the wait before the page was completed. In the end I kept it simple. The words are not very clear in the picture, but it is from one Dylusions word stamps that says I'm currently unsupervised ...and the possibilities are endless.!! In our household Mouse has changed it to Grandad is currently unsupervised and the possibilities are dangerous.

I will work on the new workshop list tonight and have it up on the blog at the beginning of next week in the meantime I hope you are all enjoying your summer.

Keep crafting
