Today I was lucky enough to take a friendly plastic class with Liz Welch. Even better, there were only 4 of us in the class. Liz is so down to earth and 'oozes' with enthusiam, she just wanted to share everything with us.
The class was called 'little book of secrets'. The idea was to make the covers as above, but we sort of digressed!!!
Liz showed us some techniques, most of which I've seen before, but nothing beats seeing them for real with Liz leading the way. The one I couldn't get my head round was the 'peel offs'. No don't worry, you did read that right, it does say 'peel offs'!!! But now I know how to do it, watch this space!!!
This is one of Liz's samples using the peel offs in the friendly plastic.
This is Liz showing us her lacework but in a 'knitted' style.
She then cut the heart shape out, added some flowers and ribbons.
More playing. It was amazing how quick the time went!! But we all had a fabulous day - thanks Liz.
So this is us from left to right. Zoe (who I met for the first time today), me, Mary (no blog yet), Liz and Frankie.
These are Mary's pieces. She was the only one of us who managed to construct the book - well done Mary. The colours are gorgeous, so bright and virbrant.
These are Zoe's makes from today. The oozed diamond at the top is stunning IRL. The flower charm is actually embedded in the FP.
These are Frankies makes. Patchwork, oozing with lace and sequin waste. Knitted lace effect on the large heart.
And lastly, my pieces. My prize possession is actually still around my neck, but Zoe took a photo, so I will have to wait for her to forward it to me or blog it. The red square bottom left, is housing waste peel offs!!!!
Thanks to everyone for a fabulous day, really enjoyed it xxx
If you ever get a chance to go on any of Liz's classes, I really urge you to take the opportunity.
