the girls say goodbye to Norah
I made these atc's today (but they are not finished) to show the younger girls the blending technique with Ranger's Distress ink pads - they are based on some that Dyan Reaveley's made. I thought they were a nice introduction to both atc's and Distress ink blending plus a touch of masking. Very sinmple but very effective.
Tonight at the kidz club Norah popped in to say goodbye to the girls. One by one they went up to her and gave her an atc they had made. As everything is packed for her departure early Wednesday she promised to make and send swaps when she gets back to the UK.
First up was Lauren who is counting down the days till her 'pot' comes off - just 2 more sleeps!
Next was Alice
Last but not least was Emily
I showed them how to blend the Distress inks and reminded them of the rules for atc's. They had a restricted set of stamps but unlimited colours from the Distress range. Two hours went by in a flash - quick stop for drinks and Pringles - no choccy biccies when it's 31 degrees even with air con. Oh no! far too melty!!
Grabbed Alice for a photo as she was headed out of the door - Deena her Mum had a new baby five or six weeks ago so don't keep her waiting.
Emily only started today - her Mum came in this morning to ask about classes for her older sister and was persuaded to let her come too.
and Lauren - our little Miss Cheeky Monkey but so lovable
They made a grand job so well done girls - I'm very proud of you all.
Right I'm now off to have some dinner, put my feet up and slump in front of the TV with the fan going and very few clothes on - not a pretty sight!!! reminds me I have the ironing still to do from yesterday!!!!!
so Bye for now
