Hope It Doesn’t Rain

I held an all day workshop yesterday and I met some amazing crafting ladies, five were new to me and they were an absolute treasure to teach. Patricia came as well but she is already a seasoned crafter so a few things for her were repetition but it is always lovely to have her in my class. Below is the envelope album which we made and as you can see we did some painting. All the papers had an acrylic wash over them but the front of the album when finished was sprayed all over with the Memories Mists Iridescent. Wish you could see the pearl sheen which radiates from the cover it is gorgeous. The roses actually look as if they have been made from opalescent paper but it started as a matt finish.

The two stamped ladies are from Crafty Individuals but with the middle one, only her head was punched out and before putting into the bottle top I lightly embossed her with gold embossing powder. Cut out a Memory Box die with thick cardstock, triple embossed, added two different mica powders then stamped into it.

We did manage to get all the album finished and the front cover embellished but the rest of the envelope pages is homework for the girls and when I next see them it will be fun to see how each and everyone of them have decorated theirs. Will be popping back hopefully each day to let you see my decorated pages.
