So we started off on Sunday with a plain bog standard photo frame. Obviously I haven't got a picture of it naked, so hopefully you can get an idea of how it started life from the back.
After we'd finished it looked like this!
As I mentioned yesterday we were able to pick our own colour and choose our own text to add to it. It would have been easy for them just to print off a phrase and get us to use that, but no, they brought an old fashioned typewriter with them so we could type whatever we wanted. Boy, do typists have my respect, we forget how easy with have it with modern keyboards now! All the flowers started off as white and we coloured them to match our projects.
I said yesterday that Hels and Pauline's attention to detail was fab, this is the water that we had each day. It was too pretty to drink, so I made do with the tea, coffee, fruit teas, squash, Diet Coke and diet cherry coke instead!
I can't wait for the next weekender, the projects haven't been finalised but are likely to be bookmaking and a niche canvas. Hels and Pauline make a great comedy double act, I learnt so many techniques and now have the confidence to get messy. Can I have the cheque now please?! Seriously, if you get a chance to go to their workshops you'll have a great time. I went on my own knowing no one and now feel like part of a wonderful community, much like the wonderful blogging community. Can we have a group hug?
Oh yes, I said I'd fess up about what I bought.....
Look, I saved £15 okay!
