The very first class Trina and I did at Go Go Getaway last weekend was with the fabulous Lorraine, who showed us how to use Indian Ink in a waterbrush to create a beautiful hand-lettered title for our page. We were provided with the lettering already traced out onto thebackground paper, so it was easy to fill it in and I really enjoyed the process.
Here's my finished page, showing a photo of my sweet step-granddaughter, Macy ...
We also did lots of fussy-cutting (now forever "futty-cussing" in my mind!) from the papers in the kit to embellish the page and then bravely splatted ink about, before finish with enamel dots, the flair and a little pineapple charm - I hung mine from the "O".
The little hearts were supposed to be stitched down the centre, but I ran out of time - I will go back and finish that as it looked really cute. And the letters look a bit patchy now, so I will maybe touch those up a bit and then write some journaling around the edge of the page.
This weekend coming I am off on ANOTHER jolly !!! This time it's Ministry of Mixology in Coventry to spend the weekend learning from three of my mixed media heroes - Kate Crane, France Papillon and Andy Skinner. I expect I'll have lots to tell you about it next week :o)
Thanks for checking out my blog today, see you again soon!
