Yest Paul came over to craft and techniquey-fy, drink herbal tea and generally gas (in the UK that means talk, ok?!). Time flew by and 5 hours went like 5 seconds. I was particularly enthralled when he showed Me what fancy things I could do with lavvy roll.
Im not espesh techniquey, I would probably say Im more of shift it about a page and stick kind of girl. But since ive been inked by The Holtzmeister, anything goes - you know?
Here is Paul showing me how to make lavvy roll into soemthing of a phenomena! and then here is Ellie and her friend Beth having a go.
I found the best way to use this technique was better on cuttlebug embossing folders as opposed to stamps.
We loved it Paul! Thank you.
I cant believe Ellie had a go although she was **encouraged** a little. She didn't bother painting it the next day when it had dried but Beth and I did and this is the fruits of our labour.
This is Beths lovely card uisng pink painting to pick up the embossed effect of dried lavvy roll
And here is mine whcih i scuffed green paint o'er the top of.
And here it is close up so you can see what dried lavvy roll on embossing folders can do!
Now I can make funky textures from lavvy roll and embossing folders....for fun!
As its late and Ive not long got back from the most amazing night of my entire life (and Ellies), Im going to wait until tomorrow to share pictures of our heart stopping, enthralling night at the MEN Arena watching Torville and Dean. We were both so so excited and happy and scared and wowed buy the whole night. Im limited to using very basic words that wont do the whole night its justice - spectacular, entertaining, happy..... it goes on. I believe there are tickets left for Sunday night if you are at a loose end in Manchester! The pre-show entertainment is just as magical as the show itself.
Need shut eye now, I have a wedding to shoot tomorrow and the bride is in pink! Happy, happy, happy :)
