We seem to have had all seasons in one day today. Hopefully tomorrow will be more settled as we have to fly to Wellington for my uncle’s funeral – he was one month off turning 90 and had been tramping with friends two days before dying. He was a wonderful big brother to my Mum and will be missed by all.
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to teach a group of girls 4 projects at a 10 year olds birthday party. It was heaps of fun and I really enjoyed my time with these lovely young ladies.
The first project they made was this Jotta pad with a mini gel pen.
We used the Watercolour Pencils to colour in the image from Beautiful You. They each chose different colour schemes and had pens to match the ladies dress . My sample uses the Pacific Point for her dress and the water, Daffodil Delight for her hat and Early Espresso for her hair. For her skin I did a combination of Calypso Coral and Early Espresso.
The second project we made was a corner bookmark.
This project uses three different die sets – the scalloped edge is created with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, the mats and DSP are cut using dies from the Layering Square Framelits. I wanted something that would be flat to go in the centre so had a quick thumb through the catalogue to see what I could use. This cool cut out is from the Support Ribbon Framelits set – add one of our new flat Rhinestones and the project is complete. The paper squares are from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. I gave the girls 5 squares (one of each of the new In Colours) and they could choose to use 4 or all five on their project.
And here’s how it sits on the page
Check back tomorrow for the remaining two projects. I’ll also do another post shortly sharing two new promotions we have on offer this month so check back in about an hour for those.
