A Long Weekend & DD Class projects

Hope your Queen's Birthday Weekend is going well (if in NZ).  I am enjoying the company of two of my DD's and DGS although one daughter had to return home for sport today. 

I was checking the HELMAR blog and guess what - I was a winner of their May Challenge so that was a nice surprise.

Consequently no scrapping opportunities but maybe tomorrow so in the mean time here are the projects from Donna Downey's Timaru classes a fortnight ago. First a mixed media canvas - lots of fun and I am looking forward to having another go at this style.
 I used a photo of '4 Generations' - I am the child being held by my Grandmother, then there is Mum and my Great Gran. 

The second project is a 'Vintage Shabby Chic' Mini album for which I used a theme of my Mum and her best friend and sister-in-law who sadly passed away almost 16 years ago.

 The right hand pages were the pages from Donna's class and the left are ones which I have added myself. 
 Below left - I had a play of masking onto the calico (need to gesso it first). 

 I haven't quite finished the album yet as I am waiting on another photo but the last page is a memorial page.  I felt the angel wings we were given to work with lent itself to this.
It was an enjoyable inspiring weekend. 

The next Embellish It Crop is Saturday 15 June in Timaru and 16 June in Oamaru and Joanne is also having her first one at Fairlie next week.   If you are interesting in joining any of the above please contact Joanne here.   Also it will not be to long before we are heading to Raincliff for the Winter Retreat on 16, 17 & 18 August - a great weekend and we are starting to work on some classes for those interested.

Well that is all for today.  Thanks so much for visiting. 

Until next time.....
