Finnabair Classes with Scrap Matrix in Darwin :) :) :)

Hello Hello :)

A couple of weekends ago I ant to an amazing 2 days with 4 workshops by the incredible talent of Finnabair run by the fabulous Rae at Scrap Matrix in Darwin!

It was Faaaaaaaabulous! Ania is quite possible one of the best teachers Ii have seen!!!

Today I want to share 2 of the projects that I completed in Ania's workshops!

Materials; patterned paper - 7 Dots Studio, canvas, bling, stamp - Prima, metal rings, Tim Holtz, gesso, Ranger Ink, vintage book page, lace, tulle, and lots of vintage findings LOL :)

This was my first attempt at Finn style! The one thing I learnt is not to put the gel on the patterned paper as it stopped the mist from taking ....dam!!! LOL :) Live and learn! :)

Materials; patterned paper - 7 Dots Studio, flowers, bling, stamp - Prima, distress ink -  Tim Holtz, gesso,chipboard - Imaginarium Designs, vintage book page, lace, tulle, and lots of vintage findings LOL :)

OMGosh I felt like I had used a years worth of embellishments just on this one layout!!!! LOL :)

If you ever get the chance to take a class/workshop by Finn,....... DONT PASS IT UP!!!!
