A Grand Day (Weekend) Out

Good afternoon and happy Monday! I recently went on a fun weekend crafting retreat Mixed Media Mayhem with the wonderful Kate Crane and Mark Gould. It was a day with each of them, and this is what I made.

This was made with DecoArt media and some gorgeous 7 Gypsies papers. I may have enough papers to set up my own shop, but now I have some more! Mark made the stars himself, 2 for everyone on a 2 day retreat, mmm sounds like fun!

On Kate's day we made a mini album. Again all the paints and mediums are from DecoArt.

This is one of the signatures.

This is the inside.

There are spaces left for photographs

This was a great weekend, two very different tutors and projects. Mark's was finished on the day, and Kate's will be played with and added to over the coming weeks. I also met some of my blogging buddies which was fun.

Thanks to Kate, Mark, and Sharon for organising, and also DecoArt and 7 Gypsies for the materials.

Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking x
