Teaching a workshop is pretty amazing. The greatest thing is to see how the workshop participants use the bits of information you have shared, and develop the ideas further creating beautiful pieces of art. And it's not just about sharing but as much about receiving: The participants give me new ideas of how the techniques introduced can be be used and varied, and the joy of creating something together always brings a smile on my face.
This Sunday in May was not an exception, when a group of papercrafters got together for a two workshop crop. The first gelli plate workshop was given by Minna, and as contrast to strong colors and mixed media textures on the first workshop, my workshop was about creating a layout in soft and feminine shabby chic style.
Two BigShots were used side by side when participants were die-cutting the decorative elements for their projects. Many of the recently released Sizzix dies were used (e.g. this, this, and this die), some Prima flowers, and Stampendous stamps. I love all the layouts the participants made! Gorgeous, each and every one of them!
Here's my sample layout I used for the class:
Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by :)
