Artsy Crafty Weekend

I was given the most amazing gift of attending the Artsy Crafty weekend by my dear friend Kaz. Sadly due to personal circumstances she wasn't able to join us, which did put a bit of a damper on the weekend for me, but I realised that I had to honour the kindness shown to me and really make the most of the weekend.

It really was a great weekend, so much thought and attention went into it by the organisers LB Crafts and Paper Artsy stamps. The venue in Newport Pagnell was perfect for the event, providing wonderful food and a cosy atmosphere.

The ladies responsible created some wonderful projects for us including a stunning clock, a fun box, and a fab embellishment. And we got right down and dirty making them all. Of course the shopping opportunity was pretty great too!

I've never really worked with metal before so learning some of the techniques was a wonderful opportunity and very inspiring, but I particularly liked playing with the textured paint techniques as this is a current passion of mine.











Thanks again to Kaz for being such a kind and special friend, to the organisers for their hard work, and sharing their knowledge, and to all the lovely ladies who made the weekend such fun.

Your clock looks gorgeous and so does your box, Audrey. Metal is a fantastic medium to work with and you've created some wonderful distressed embossed panels. We had a great weekend and it was a great pity that Kaz couldn't join us.
