Happy saturday to you all!
A couple of weeks back I went to the sydney paper crafts festival.
What a great day I had.
Donna and I have been communicating via email for a while so it was great to actually get to meet in person.
I also met one of my other online scrappy friends. Annette a friend from the Forum I live at- Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.
Annette and I did two classes together. One was Nic Howard's class and the other was Lou Nelson's class.
Both with such different styles but both such lovely ladies and such talented artists.
I was sat in Lou Nelson's class next to a lovely lady. I asked her name and she told me Leonie. I know of 2 scrapping Leonie's on my blog roll. So I asked her surname and sure enough she said Waldron, I had been following her blog for some time! It was once again fabulous to get to meet her and watching her scrap was awesome too, she was a natural at Lou's style. Check out Leonie's blog here.
I didn't get time for much shopping with classes on most of the day but I did manage to nab some new chipboard and alphas.
Here is my favourite layout from the classes. It was Lou Nelsons' class of course. We played around with misting gesso and organic elements. Notice the gorgeous imaginarium designs chipboard designed by Lou herself.
And a 2nd layout from Lou Nelsons' class. Playing around with tissue paper, wire and more misting.
I'm not so happy with how this one turned out. But really enjoyed the creative process and learnt from it.
