Women's Day 2011

So, what do 6 ladies in the Eastern Cape do on Women's Day? They BLEND!!! LOL!! Yes, we had 6 ladies doing a Tim Holtz mini album at the shop on Women's Day, 9 August.

Here we are doing a technique with Distress inks and Perfect Pearls creating your own background paper

The magic of Distress Crackle paint!!!

Kraft Glassine - all Pearled, wrinkled, stamped, distressed and die cut - ready to make a spectacular, one of a kind flower!

Julie's inky fingers....."how am I going to get my fingers clean??" Cheap sjampoo, Julie, as per Mr Holtz!

Here is what the album looked like after all the pages were covered using Gel Medium, some of Tim's Lost and Found, Kraft Resist and Dictionary paper. The pegs - after having made a few of these albums, I realised you needed something to just make sure the corners stay put!! Tada!!
PLEASE note the cheesecake..................................

Magda and Nicki having a really good time!! It was their first blending session and they really blended away!!

Gloved Gail............always such a sport! Despite her back operation blending STRONGLY!!!

Nicky and Julie seriously covering their books. You will not believe how meticulous they tore the dictionary paper!! ( by the way, they were excellent students!!)

And Leeanne - as usual I am sure she is busy figuring out a shortcut there for something!! Remember the cheesecake earlier? Thanks to Leeanne, we were spoilt with a FAT FREE, SUGAR FREE cheesecake ( yeah right!!) and some champagne to celebrate the day!! ( thanks alot, Leeanne!!!)

The finished product! It was a full 7 hours of blending, techniques, grunging, tearing, distressing and just like minded souls enjoying the day together! Thank you, ladies! We still have some kits available for the ladies who asked about buying them. Please contact the shop or send us an email. Enjoy the rest of your week!
