Well I just finished my my first show as a self-employed person,this was with Kay at Sandown.It was great catching up with everybody on set-up day, then meeting some of the regular visitors to the show.
It was a little quieter than usual,so as a treat and surprise to Ali from Ali-Craft, we each took an hour to do a workshop with her.It has been an age since I did a workshop with somebody else teaching.
I decorated a little wooden chest with Graphic 45 papers,distress inks and some pieces from Tim Holtz idea-ology range.It was great fun,wish I could have played longer.Kay did a mirror frame with some paints from Paper-Artsy.

As I didn't have time to finish it on the day, I had a play at home. So I added some gold leaf and swirly pearls.The pearls I altered by colouring them with Spectrum Noir pens but you could use any of the alcohol ink pens or alcohol inks. I used Glossy accents to attach the idea-ology pieces and to highlight areas of the paper.
Hopefully I'll have another chance to do a workshop soon, but it's given me an idea with what to do with those wooden boxes I've had stored for years.....

Well my next adventure starts tomorrow and I'm really excited, I'm not saying what yet,there are a few who know but I'll tell all in a few days time.
So I'll have to go now and finish sorting out.
Thanks for all the lovely comments,let me know what you think about the box.
