A couple of weeks ago I gave a workshop to the ladies of the Mosaik group. It was the first one of the year and so nice to see these ladies again.
I thought I’d try and push them out of the size they’re normally used to creating with and have a go at a full sized layout along with some small pre-made embellishments to use with their card making and mini page layouts.
As usual we started with a kit which they loved and I got them sewing through paper and layering elements together as well as adding some touches of gold accents here and there.
The next time we meet will be in May which I’m already planning.
The other workshop was with a group of local ladies who wanted to learn the art of book folding. They’d seen the tree Lena and I had taught Mosaik before Christmas and wanted to do a similar thing. As it’s Spring I showed them a birdhouse complete with little bird and a bit of foliage.

This is becoming a bit of a habit, I think I’ll make this Friday thing a regular date. Now is a good time to catch you up on what’s been happening in the studio and what’s on my desk going into the weekend.
Tomorrow I have a workshop with the Mosaik Ladies so this week I’ve been busy preparing for that. The kits are almost ready, just one or two things to do but on the whole I’m ready to go. The first one back after the summer break is always exciting and I suppose there’ll be lots of chit chat going on but the best thing will be to see the photo’s. Call me nosy but I love to see the photo’s people bring with them to put in their book project.
Some days are better than others as far as inspiration is concerned but today I’ve been on a roll. So far I’ve completed two projects, one of which I’ve posted out for Craft Stamper, taken step photo’s, uploaded them, started the writing and ordered the materials for workshop kits next week. Time for a cup of tea I think.
This is what we’ll be making next week, a mini album made totally from transparent acetate pages. I think it’s pretty neat.
