Craft totes awaited our ladies with materials for the mornings project stuffed inside. This session was our technique boutique where we try a variety of techniques using various materials. We decided to showcase these techniques on a canvas themed in red, white and blue to commemorate the forthcoming royal wedding. We even had an embossed crown embellishment on there.
The techniques/materials we used included alcohol inks, crackle paint, cosmic shimmer watercolour paints, grunge paper and pressure embossing.
We enjoyed a carvery Sunday lunch and then back to our final session. Easter baskets with chicks and sweets helped keep sugar levels up. We used three new ranges from Best Creations for our final workshop - let's party, baby safari and travel!
It's always sad when good things come to an end but it's not too long for some to wait until our scrapbooking retreat in july. Everyone had received goodies,
(after asking to have 52 eggs personalised we are banned from our local Thorntons)!
made 20 cards/notelets and a canvas to display in their craft space and some ladies were also lucky enough to win one of the many spot and raffle prizes we drew over the weekend. Hopefully all went away tired but happy.
Nige and I arrived home at five o'clock and were both asleep by ten past!
Onwards and upwards to the next retreat now.
