Result of a weekend of crafting....

Hello fellow Crafters,

Last weekend I went to a Craft Retreat hosted by De Craftorij. It was very well organised by Lia and the teachers were absolutely wonderful.

On Saturday the first workshop was taught by Andy Skinner and we made two wall hangings. I really enjoyed doing something I wouldn't normally do and went out during the class to buy some of the stuff to use at home !

This is the first wall hanging, made with crackle paint and faux rusted metal....

This is the second one, made with paint and more faux rusted metal....

On day 2, I went to join France Papillon to make an art journal. The coptic binding was not easy to do (I am blond, you see, lol) but France helped me to finish it and I think the end result looks awesome ! 

In the afternoon we started doing spreads in our journal. This first one is when France told us what to do/use to create layers....

This last one, France made us do a spread on our own and put into practice what we learned about journaling but also about ourselves....

That was it for today !

Thanks for stopping by !
