JD and Do!ts


Hope you all had a lovely weekend!! :)
I had a fabulous workshop on Saturday! It was held at Do!ts and I thank Ivona and Marina for allowing me to share my love for paper crafting and my stamps of coarse!

I wanted to do an intro to stamping using my Jungle Baby (Croatian version). The two techniques we did were paper piecing and using water colours to colour the stamped images.

But first...just check out the wonderful space we worked bright, fun and such a creative atmosphere!!

Or tea! ;)
I baked banana bread and brought it to the workshop. :) That's how I roll! :)

I wanted to share techniques that weren't difficult (because I assumed that the ladies coming to the workshop didn't have much or any experience using stamps) and also techniques that were affordable for beginners. I remember when I got started I was overwhelmed with everything that I needed....paper piecing is an easy and won't put a strain on your wallet. I personally love to colour in my stamped images with my Graph'it markers but markers are an investment so I thought water colours would be a great alternative. 

I also encouraged the lovely ladies who came to my workshop to doodle!! :) Draw a border, clouds, grass, faux stitching, etc.....and they did....and they did it awesomely!!! :)

Don't even ask about the hair....don't! :)  (I am looooong over due a hair cut and my bangs????!!)

Water colours

Paper piecing.

I did bring some of my Graph'it markers and let the ladies have a try at using them...

It was a rainy day but it was bright and beautiful inside Do!ts! I thank all the ladies from the bottom of my heart...for coming and allowing me to share my passion. They did a fabulous job!! And I hope they'll join me again in the future! :)
