A Donna Downey Weekend

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you have had a good weekend - I certainly did.  Artful Crafts hosted Donna Downey (all the way from North Carolina, USA)  and I attended all three classes - two yesterday and one today  so what better way to spend a rainy weekend than creating with a celebrity mixed media artist and a group of lovely ladies from  Auckland to Balclutha.  We created a technique journal then put some of the techniques into practice on a mixed media canvas then today created a Vintage Shabby Chic album so I will take some photos over the next few days however in the meantime ......
 Donna Downey  is a great tutor with amazing knowledge and talent.

Today I will share a  card that was created last weekend and posted to Australia for a birthday celebration that we were unable to attend this weekend. As my mojo last Saturday at the Embellish It Crop was on a 'go slow' and I had limited time I scrap-lifted it from Joanne (pictured above above right). 

 The image and sentiment are Lili of the Valley and papers Bo Bunny 6 x 6 pad.

Well that is all for today.  I will be back with some more photos later....

Until then - have a good week.
