A Fun Painty Day....

Morning folks...oh boy did I have a fun day on Sunday courtesy of the lovely Andy Skinner...it was great to just sit and play...chat...have fun and get mega messy with lots of crafty buddies.  In the morning class we decorated a tag using Martha Stewart paints and drybrushing...a technique I haven't used since my ceramic days...creating metal effects and cool rivets...check out that messy painty craft mat...
 The Maestro in action...
  time for lunch and lots of chat with my lovely buddies Erika...Alison...Anne and Andy...
 back to messy fun in the afternoon....a fabulous gesso technique...more dry brushing and a bit of stamping...
 the finished tag after raiding the cubbyhole hardware box...
and a lightbulb moment for this tag...
another notebook for the cubbyhole collection
So what's on today's agenda....well if you don't yet know all us Timmie fans are counting down to the big day....yes "12 TAGS OF CHRISTMAS" goes live on Thursday December 1st at 7.01am in the UK...so I'm off to get my Penny Black Saturday DT card for this week out of the way....clearing the decks so to speak and then I'll be looking out the Timmie stash so that I am ready and waiting for the off.
But I have a little surprise for 2 of my lovely bloggy buddies who are regular visitors to the cubbyhole...these will be winging their way to you girls as soon as you e-mail me with your addresses....


I'll be having more give-aways with the rest of the cubbyhole stamp clear outs on Thursday...see you all tomorrow over at WOYWW.

Ooh, I love the tag and notebook, Kath - so glad for you that enjoyed your class! Your 'thought-for-the-day' sentiment on the tag has such resonance! Hope you and Buddy have a lovely day! Hugs, Janet xx

I do envy you your day with Andy. I met him last June at the Craft Barn Extravaganza, which I traveled half way round the world to take part in the weekend with other lovely crafting peeps.
Looking forward to the tags with TH too

Hi Kath, looks like you had a super time, love the tags and your note book.

I bumped into Linda Elbourne in Lin Browns shop on Saturday, she send her regards. Lin Brown's shop is closing and she had a sale. Had a nice little spend.

I love that first tag of black & gold combined with your hardware raid. Glad you had great fun & I have to agree with Debz - the expressions on your two faces is priceless. There I was spoonful of porridge poised - & I spy my name ........then the CB stamps.........oh my! What a lovely surprise......thank you so so much. I've just signed up to join in a tag swap with CB so tags are definitely on my agenda & I shall avidly be watching the TH 12 tags this year. Hope it's less draughty where you are.

Hi Kath I've just had a lovely catch up since I haven't been online since Friday. Had a busy weekend making fairy cakes for party bags and Poppy's birthday cake. Not to mention being at the party!!

I'm loving all the makes I've missed. I'm hoping to join in at PB for the fourth Christmas challenge as I've managed 3 so far!

Looks like you had a lovely time at your Andy Skinner class and I love what you made.
