the girls next challenge.....

...so, after the jigsaw pieces, came the star and now the fan.....



now that Janet has got her fan piece I can show you....it started off as part of a five piece fan kit with harlequin patterns on both sides....the top was left "bare" then pieces of black paper with text print added in strips at angles, this was then stamped and embossed with cosmic shimmer utec...which was then sprayed with cosmic shimmer mist. A piece of white paper was coloured using chalks and then the text was stamped. Some wire was curled around a pencil and this was then fitted behind the text... a metal embellishment and some crafty notions dew dropz were added and voila...
The other side was painted with daubers whilst wet some ultra fine black glitter was dropped on the top. The top was stamped and embossed in gold. The face was stamped onto text paper and only part adhered to the fan, an invoke stamp was used on shrink plastic and adhered to the bottom....can't wait to see them all together bet they look fab!!

Had a good day teaching yesterday....the girls made some gorgeous books and all so different. Keep an eye out for some more teaching days and some more great and different ideas....one of which is a metal arch which Ang and I are hoping to organise. If you live in the area and are keen to try something different give me an email and I'll let you know what we're up to.....

Wow Carol what an unusual challenge both sides of the fan are really stunning. Wish I lived in your neck of the woods - your workshops sound like fun - have you got any pics of the books you made?

Caroline said...
