Banner class on Wed 3rd and Sat 6th Nov.

 I have a lot of people a little dubious about this weeks class. After all "banner" does not really describe very well, the vision I had in my head. But, I have finally prepared the sample for you, and hope you like it. This little banner is constructed in covered chipboard, so its very tough, and most of the elements decorating it, are also chipboard. After all, its something that would only be out for a month and then would be packed away for another year. I am also hoping to prepare a blue/cream sample tonight, so if your decorating style differs from the traditional, you can opt for that version.

The big shot is used extensively in this class to create the elements and give lots of lovely texture. Its just amazing what this machine can do. I also have a great little trick for colouring pearls!

This class is offered on Wednesday the 3rd November at 10am and Saturday 6th November at 10.30am. The cost is $25 and includes all materials and morning tea. If you could bring along a pair of scissors sharp enough to cut the ribbon and lace that would be helpful.

If you would like to make a larger banner at home with the words 'christmas' on it to add to the 'merry', I will be preparing kits for this at an additional cost of $8 by request. The add on kits will include, paper, pre cut chipboard, ribbon, lace, flowers, buttons and pearls but will not include inks (old olive, real red and soft suede have been used), adhesive, glimmer spray, tools and stamps. You are welcome to glitter the letters in class if you wish.

The whole banner is coated in glimmer spray (made from the new champagne Ink) which you can just see on this pic.

On a more personal little boy was off sick two weeks ago and was very sick with a very high fever for days, but finally recovered enough for me to send him back to school last week. On his first day back, he arrived home and sat on the lounge and was asleep within seconds. I just had to take a photo.
