Oyster Retreat November 2014 Projects

What a fab time I had on the Oysters Retreat this weekend. Crafting with my good friends Eileen Godwin and Martine Smith, I demonstrated colouring with lots of  lovely crafters at the Hellidon Lakes Hotel in Daventry. I've made lots of new friends and it was such a great atmosphere of fun and learning !

Details of what I used - 
Carrier bags available from http://www.carrierbagshop.co.uk/  15 x 20 x8cms
Mo Manning designs 'Little Elf Present' and 'Little Elf Mim'
Dies - Little B Die Star, Memory Box Snowflake and Creative Expressions Classic 3D Bow 

Images coloured with alcohol pens and highlighted with Glamour Dust.

For those of you who were asking I recommend taking a look at the fabulous Alyce Keegan's website http://kitandclowder.ning.com/home  where you can learn more about techniques for colouring. Alyce also has a Facebook page - Kit and Clowder.

Christmas crafting fun - everyone from the Oyster Retreat had a great time with lots of laughter. The next one is in March 2015 - not to be missed !
