Today I wish to share an layout I created months ago, plus some pics from last weekend in Sweden where I taught two workshops with a great bunch of fun and sweet ladies!
First the layout. "Do You Remember Your Kitty? We tried to save her but then she was gone..." I think the title says a lot about what this layout is about. It was a little cute kitty we tried to save from some neighbors who wanted to just put her down at the vet because they didn't want to pay what it had to cost to save her when she was sick. I just couldn't accept that, so I paid the bill and told the vet to do what they had to to save her, and then I brought her home to us, to her "new family". The kitty recovered, and my daughter totally felled in love with her. But then, on the 31st of October, on Halloween, she just never came back home again.. Only about a month after we saved her. Kind of a sad story for us, and we really miss her. So I created this layout about "the story" for my daughter;
I used lots of Prima products in a different way and style on this layout. I used light kraft cardstock as background and Prima masks in a negative way for the white branches on the background. I simply added on the masks where I wanted them, then draw a line around them with a thin black pen, and then added white paint pretty randomly inside of the drawn black lines.
The flower is self made from different Prima flowers and center, and the "Remember" title is hand cut out from an old Prima pattern paper. The picture frame is also made with a mask and the same technique as the branches, but this time I used different Distress Inks to color it.
Here is some close-ups;
The touches of steampunk; the details with tiny clock gears, clock face and colored Gesso is totally inspired by the amazing Finnabair, who I am so proud of having as a friend. She is so talented and I totally admire everything she do! Please make sure to check out here blog here!
Workshops in Sweden
Last weekend I was in Sweden to teach workshops in Uddevalla, an great event ran by CountryScrap. I met a lot of lovely ladies and had such a great time over there. It was just one hour flight, but it doesn't matter where in the world I teach when where I am is just like this! A beautiful place on the countryside of Sweden, ran by some lovely ladies from Countryscrap, and lots of fun ladies who attended the classes! Great food was served, with BBQ dinner on Saturday, and even the weather was great, just like a beautiful summer day! Could we ask for more? No, this weekend was just perfect! Such a great place and such great classes to teach!
Here are some images of the Saturday workshop, in the class room.

And this are some of the lovely ladies from the Sunday workshop which was a smaller workshop then the day before.
And of course, we had to do a "jump of joy" shot too! ;O)
