We'll be using stencils, paint, ink, stamps and doodling until your heart is content and you can make as many as you can fit in the class to take home.

Quotes for the Soul

 Every time I do a quote book it is a massive hit. I think you are all as hooked on them as me. This year I have been trying to find inspirational ones and this is a collection of some of my favourites, with the odd sarcastic one thrown in ( oh yes..!!) . We will be decorating a tall 10 x 5 chipboard album from Delish Designs, with beautiful Laura Ashley flocked papers . A sprinkling of paint, a splattering of fragments, toss in some tags and add cabouchons to taste. The perfect antidote to our stressful lives( or is that just me ?).
