Easter Party - Are you free ????

Hey girls - Annamarie from The Scrapbook Store and Elaine have organised another great party where you can scrapbook, make cards, shop, take some classes and generally have a fun filled day in Dublin on 18th April. They have very kindly asked me to teach a class and I thought I would show you some photos of whats in store for you.

I am going to teach the distressed paint technique which was recently published in the Stampers Sampler and create a fabulous sketchbook/journal with your finished design. I have lots and lots of little 8 fold inserts which I use for quotes and notes or basic sketches for my artwork and have made these into handy journals to fit in my handbag. I would love to see you there and hope you will join in and have fun with lots of like minded folk.

Annamarie is taking bookings through her shop or you can log onto the forum for some further info.
Hope to see you all there :0)

Here are some samples of the completed journal covers :





And here are some piccies of inserts which I had done last year with coffee stained pages and some added stitching to make pockets etc (my fav)
For Katie Scarlet - Edited to add the hummingbird flourish stamp shown below left here is from here:



I will post you required list of supplies on the forum over the coming days.

Oh, I wish I could come to Dublin fair city. Maybe one day, a girl can dream. Fab projects, Carrie.
Strong tea is also a good dying liquid, in fact I remember even painting with tea.

Your art journals look incredible Carrie, love your distressed paint technique, you need to do an online class for those of us who can't attend :) :)
Good luck with your classes xox

I am so looking forward to your class... I love making little books anyway - will have my daughter fighting to take this one away from me!

Your work is just stunning - I'm so inspired to go and try to teach myself new things!

Would you be willing to share who makes the flourishy hummingbird image? I'm guessing it's a rubber stamp and it would make a perfect, perfect gift for someone I know.

Now, off my to my artroom to play with paint!
