Eileen's August Workshop

Fab day at Eileen's today. Love it because she takes me out of my comfort zone with the projects we do!

Panpastels and Versamark background with coloured Versafine Lavinia dandelion images and a bit of Glamour Dust.

Embossed backing paper with clear embossing on raised areas. Distress ink and Gilding Wax. Really didn't think this was going to turn out as well but the wax makes all the difference!
Same embossing technique as above (no wax) but using watercolour paper and painted with distress ink. Think I went a bit bright lol!
Thanks to everyone there for a super day of having fun, chatting, drinking tea and eating cake with friends old and new - couldn't get a better crafting day x
