Anything Goes is the theme over at the last Challenge of 2014 at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog, this will go on for 5 weeks so i do hope you have the time to join in!
On Saturday 13 December i attended the Taster Day at AFTH Harrogate and did three workshops, the last one was an added one because there were spaces and i learnt so much am so glad i was able to attend! Have to say THANK YOU to my wonderful OH who did all the driving and encouraged me to stay for the last class.
On the first one workshop i met the lovely Karen Hayselden who took us through making an ATC with lots of different techniques. It was a fabulous hour, here is my lovely Agatha ATC which i am entering into week 2 of the Challenge.
Karen had us fussy cutting, colouring with Amsterdam Paints, adding washi tape for texture, adding hot glue then going over when it was cool with Treasure Gold and finally adding the black circles around our snow (this had to be done after the ATC was dry).
Karen had pre prepared the sewing on the ATC’s and she very kindly let me have some of the very tiny holly, tree, boots and gingerbread man that she had cut out just in case she had someone who struggled with the cutting (me!). Thank you Karen for saving my hands so i could enjoy the rest of the day.
I persuaded my lovely OH to attend Karen’s class and here is the ATC he made. I must admit i like his better!
If you ever get the chance to attend one of Karen’s classes at AFTH or wherever she teaches i would recommend you attend, i am sure you will come away with something wonderful and have fun.
Thanks for dropping by.
