Earthquake Crop

 This layout is based on a sketch (below), uses a mixture of Pink Paislee papers donated by Kays Company and some from the workshop kits.

 Loved both of the pages designed by Trina & Rachel and had fun putting them together.  It reminded me how much I get out of doing workshops by others.  There's always a style or technique I can use in further layouts or projects.  Thank you Trina & Rachel for the inspiration :-)
Some of the things I loved most...
  • the little details
  • using fabric (loved the muslin with Trina's page)
  • the artisian elements
  • multimedia component (feathers, beads and doily)
  • Rachel's wee embellishment packs were gorgeous, didn't want to open them to use and the pre-threaded needle rocks!
  • having the workshop but being able to adapt it to do my own thing e.g. mirror flipping it to fit the perspective of the photo.
Thanks to everyone involved in organsing the crop.  I was really disappointed that I couldn't be there in person but pleased I was able to participate in a small way while my husband enjoys a fishing weekend.

I think you did well to replicate the layouts after seeing what the ladies down in Invers did. Your layouts are stunning. Looking forward to seeing you in November.
