Eileen Godwin's workshop

Good morning Lovelies, back again :)

I spent Saturday and Sunday at the lovely Eileen Godwins workshops down in Rochester and what a fab time I had on both days, such lovely company, good laughs, good chit chat, tea and cake, what more can a girl ask for? Oh and of course loads of fab inspiration from the fab Eileen. Saturday was a Brusho workshop which made a lovely change, now Brusho's if you are not familiar are very fine crystals of pure paint, water colour, very versatile. Check out YouTube you will find various tutorials. So here are my Saturday Brusho makes.

My first is Penny Black - Delicate Florals stamp

My second and third are Sweet Poppy Stencils


Fourth is Visible Image stamps

And finally another Penny Black stamp.

Sunday was an Altered Art workshop and we altered a very cheap IKEA mirror, just plain white, I should of taken a before and after photo but I didn't have my camera with me, but after lots of embossing, die cutting, sticking, black Gessoing, Painting and gilding, here's the end result, very pleased with it indeed.

Thank you so much Eileen for your wonderful inspiration, wit and general loveliness.

Thank you all for visiting today, I hope you hab a lovely day xx Zoe xx
