Cubby Hole Workshop



I had a great day at the " Cub" yesterday at a workshop run by Sarah Anderson called Love collage.


 
We got very inky and messy. All the materials were provided including a wooden frame which will be altered in some way. I also want to add some more bits to the actual collage, text probably. The materials included corrugated card, cereal packets, lace, scrim, tissue paper, kitchen towel etc etc and of course lots of  paint, ink and sprays and lots of PVA!  not forgetting tea,coffee, cakes, biscuits and chocolate!! fun and laughter and sometimes you could hear the concentration :))
The flowers are TH tattered florals which have been embossed  using  heart embossing folders...

The stitching was done by Sarah cos I'm sewing machine phobic! thank you Sarah. I had a great day and enjoyed the company of all who attended...thanks folks... mind you they have to put up with a bit of ***---***! from me now and then :))

That is wonderful and it looks as if you had a great time. I keep meaning to take my sewing machine to some TH tattered flowers but not got around to it yet - where does time go??

Gorgeous colours and textures. I love the hearts within flowers and the contrast of the warmth against the grey. Beautiful.
