The weekend started on Saturday when my grand-daughter and I went to the demonstration day in Kendal. It was great to see lovely Lindsay again and her new stamps - these sets are brilliant and we spent some time deciding which to get (although I can see myself having to get them all!) We also got to see Esther Gundry for a bit of a catch up! There were some fabulous products being demo'd, all I need is a LOTTO win!
Off we went into Kendal town to 'Reticule' -the most fabulous little shop with lots of textiles and haberdashery - bought a few goodies and then met up with 'the boys'!
After tea we got started and my grandson joined in. We stamped then coloured the 'Urban Angel' images using a combination of crayon and gel pens and finally (the next day) came up with this.
The twigs were decorated with glitter glue, some bits of ribbon and some sequins that had been on the front of a comic!
Over the three days we made two similar reels.
The last one we made was using a set of 'Molly Bloom' stamps and I must thank Clare for the inspiration, as she had a decorated reel on her demo table that took our eye - nothing like this, but when we saw a bag of reels in 'Reticule' we were away!
We didn't spend all our time indoors, we got out for a walk and lunch at Leighton Moss reserve and also to the beach at Morecambe for a bit of kite flying!
Add a bit of bug hunting in the garden and playing with a ball and yes - a great weekend!
Thanks for looking, I will get back soon with my 366/2012 journal pages, Chris
