Banana Frog Blog Hop - Fun with Fragments

If you are enjoying a hop around the Banana Frog DT today (or even if you are not!) - welcome!

The theme for this hop is 'spring' and that immediately for me brings to mind flowers. So I've used the Scribble Flowers set (again!) for my makes today. I've been playing with Tim Holtz Fragments and I've made a necklace and a fridge magnet with them.

In both cases I stamped the scribble flower, coloured it with pencils and glued it onto book paper. I then stuck it to a Fragment - simple as that! I used gel medium to stick the paper to the Fragment (love that stuff, it's awesome) but you could also use Glossy Accents or Diamond Glaze.

I am the last stop on your hop - or, if you've not come via the hop pop over to the Banana Frog Blog where you can see what my super talented teamies have been creating.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance to win some Banana Frog stamps!

Bye for now,

POTD for Banana Frog

This is one of two 'back to basics' layouts I've created for Banana Frog this month.

If you'd like more info or want to see my other LO, pop over to the Banana Frog Blog :).

I am trying a more minimalist scrapbooking style and loving it! It's so quick to do pages!

Distress Inks masterclass anyone?

My next class - a Distress Inks Masterclass - is now up for booking on over at Bubbly Funk! Distress Ink techniques are something I have been asked for by people attending other workshops, so I put this class together just to teach all the fab things you can do with these inks (can you tell I really like Distress Inks!).

Class takes place on Sat 7th May - it's almost all day 10.30-4. Look forward to meeting you if you come along!

On a side note, a few people have asked me if the class will run again because they can't make the date - do leave me a comment if this applies to you because if there is enough demand I am sure Caroline will repeat the class later in the year :).

I have a lovely vintage sewing themed project in the pipeline for June so keep an eye out for more info on that.

Bye for now :)

Bubbly Funk class

Had a lovely time on Saturday teaching my class at Bubbly Funk. What a smashing group of ladies - really a pleasure to teach. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and all the projects got finished on time too! Didn't they do a fantastic job? I especially like Sally's as she did a different colour scheme which looked stunning.

Thank you to everyone who came along :).

Watch the birdie

This little bird hanging started out life as a class by Kirsty Wiseman but my version turned out a little different (as per)...

The birds are inked, covered in Rock Candy paint and then inked again with brown ink over the top to get the distressed look. The flowers are pounced with Distress Ink then sprayed with Perfect Pearl Mist to wick the ink out.

It presently resides on the back of my living room door :)

Thanks for popping over :)
