I've been quietly busy

Although I havent posted much just recently it doesnt mean that I havent been creating! here's 4 of what I did at the weekend, and later today, when I have finished cutting him out, I will post a pic of a vvery labour intensive project that I have been working on.
But for now, here are pics of what I created at the Harrogate GNPE workshops this weekend...........



 I had been having trouble with my Pan Pastels turning muddy, so the first workshop I booked on for was Aly's Inky Fingers.
And I learnt what I was doing wrong, so watch this space! Just do NOT reload the pads constantly!! you dont need to at all, which is where I was going wrong! Sorted!













This next one was another paid workshop, Clarity, using the blender tool on the splodge mat. I do have both sizes of Splodge mat here, just hadnt taken them out of the wrappers yet, bad crafter! So this was an ideal opportunity to learn, before I got frustrated.




This one was done on Sunday, at Amy Shaw's free Craftwork Cards workshop, not exactly as she did it, but my take on it, Bless Amy I was having real trouble getting my times right on Sunday, I turned up an hour early, then 20 minutes late, but she squeezed me in at 1.30, coz I was getting cross with myself!



This one I am really pleased with, this was Sundays Clarity workshop. Using the brayer on the splodgemat, well worth investment of my time! And yes I did buy the stamps for this, as its a lovely set.

Right I have quite a bit to get on with, please pop here, and enter yourself in my bloggerversary Candy draw, theres some real goodies in there!
