Didn't we have a lovely time...

Hi folks...another fun workshop yesterday at The Papeterie with a full house of crafty hooligans...only joking was a fast paced workshop decorating a Travel Memories Box...we started off by applying a layer of gesso followed by a coat of Decoart's fabulous Chalk Paint...the colour is the most gorgeous duck egg blue with a hint of turquoise called Vintage...
 making sure it was dry...
before moving on to some fun stamping with Tim Holtz...Cityscapes...Ledger Script and Correspondence Stamp Sets...
with a blob or two of glue to hold it's beginning to look like a box...
a quick rub-a-dub scrub up before lunch and just time for a bit of sneaky crafty shopping before we were back to a fun spritzing session with Fossilized Amber and Iced Spruce Spray Stains...
 and then on to a mega die-cutting session...
and the decoration is in full swing...
but we were running a bit behind and beginning to flag in the heat of a surprise "Summer returns to Aberdeen" a huge thank you to my trusty helper Carrie for helping me die cut what seemed like zillions of tattered florals and to everyone for their wonderful truly are crafty superstars.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you the finished the meantime I'm having a "putting my feet up" have fun whatever you're doing.
