Spring Swap

Back in about April or May I set up a swap on Zuzu's Forum called the Spring Swap for people to have a go at a technique that was new to them. Well it is now November and I finally got round to doing mine. Having been on a workshop in May I wanted to use the Ten Second Studio metal embossing but then did not pick up a tool or a piece of metal till last week and struggled to remember what to do, watched the online videos by Cheryl and Megan of TSS and laughed a lot and learned a lot but was still in a pickle as I only had one mould which was not right for the project so in the end I got out a Cuttlebug embossing folder, some alcohol inks and acrylic shapes and this is the result. . Anyway that got me back into it and since then a notebook was made for the DH birthday yesterday and a picture frame is half done. It made me decide I was definitely going to start stocking it in the shop, lovely stuff to work with. Anyway Carol has received it now so it's safe to blog it. I may now have to go and lie down in a dark room having actually blogged a piece of work for the first time in months.
