I have just come in from a really nice morning spent with Sue. We popped over to Gordale Garden Centre on the Wirral where we had a sandwich, coffee & natter. It's amazing the topics you cover when you have a good time to sit & chat.
This afternoon I have the photos of the Show & Tell project from last nights Mold meeting. The project was to decorate some wooden plaques that Rachel had given everyone to play with. In the first photo you will see the sort of thing I mean. Joanna who has been looking after the meetings for me was struck down with a very bad cold so didn't come to the meeting but sent me a photo of what she had made. So that is the first photo in the set;
This is the sheet I received from Joanna.
It shows the heart plaque as she had received. The second photo shows it painted black using a cosmic shimmer product. In the next photo she has added some white through a stencil & finally overstamped a floral image in white.
This is Lynn's heart plaque with lots of levels of stamping & paint layering & washi tape
stuck around it. Totally different for Lynn as it is so very pink.
As Maureen's plaque was house shaped she turned it into a tree house compete with toadstool & gnome. Love the sentiment, Maureen.
Rhiannon also had a house shaped plaque & decorated hers to look like the side of a house & added the same sentiment as Maureen -- but in Welsh.
Janet used sprays & textures & flowers & coloured dots (were they gems Janet?) on to green shaded heart plaque. Then Janet decided to mount it onto a piece of card with some fern leaves as well.
Mair's square plaque has been made into a Christmas plaque with a delightful robin image on it.
After colouring the design, Mair covered it in Glossy Accents. Really stunning.
Ah! What a cute snowman decorating another Christmas Plaque - this time created by Joan.
Brr! that paper & those snowballs make you feel quite cold!
Sheelagh had a hear shaped plaque & as she has several Golden Wedding Anniversaries to make items for she thought that she would try the idea on the heart. It is absolutely beautiful Sheelagh & I am sure the couple who receive it will be delighted.
Another heart, this time from Rachel & with a Christmas theme.
I love the colour blending on the background to produce the wintry scene & Rachel has used some puff up texture paste to make the snow.
Another offering from Rachel with a Christmas theme again with this beautiful Poinsettia image.........
............................. and another plaque from Rachel with this gorgeous sunflower on it.
A great use for the long thin plaque.
As the Show & Tell items were on the table in front of me, witing to be photographed, I thought they looked so good I took a group photo as well.
You may notice there is one dark one right in the front - this is not a plaque but a canvas brought in by Sheelagh.
Two months ago we had an evening with canvases led by Janet which Sheelagh missed. But last month Janet gave her a canvas & Sheelagh worked on it & brought it in last night. Here it is;
Its decorated with all sorts of things, including, as you can see quite a few old coins.
I love it Sheelagh it looks really old & rustic.
There you are ladies that's the photos. Tomorrow I will have the Project items to show you.
That is all from me today - 'bye for now.
