LB Crafts Workshop

On Wednesday, I went to a workshop at LB Crafts run by the lovely Linda B. It was a Printer's Tray workshop, incorporating lots of metal. I have quite a long drive to get there, but it is well worth it to attend the workshop.
The class was very intensive, as there were a lot of steps to get through, in order to complete the project. Linda ensured that we kept going, and pretty much finished our project by the end of the day. I had a lovely time, meeting new people, and chatting to them throughout the day. Of course, I enjoyed browsing around the fabulous shop too, in my lunch break, and made one or two purchases.
Linda did some demos throughout the day, to show us what to do, as we went along, and I learnt how to use Terra and Ferro on a tag, colouring them with Precious Metal Paints to give them an aged look.
Most of the metal panels were run through the Big Shot over Kabuka Moulds for speed, and refined by hand afterwards. However, we did some by hand, like the word 'create' as it needed to be taken off a mould seperately.
The finished Printer's Tray looks absolutely stunning, and I was really chuffed with it when I was finished. Even my husband said he liked it when I got it home, and that is rare praise indeed!
Unfortunately, all of my gadding about has probably taken its toll on me, as my cold has turned to sinusitus now. My face hurts, but I'm taking antibiotics, so hopefully I'll be on the mend soon. For anyone else who is feeling poorly, keep warm and get well soon. Thanks for looking, Judith xx

This is a stunning project Judith. I know you had a great time and learnt loads on this workshop, I am dead jealous of you being able to do it. I think my favourite has to be the door panel - really lovely, with a touch of the art nouveau style we both love so much.

Hope you are feeling much better really soon.

I'm so jealous that you've done this workshop and I just LOVE your finished piece!!

Hope your sinuses clear up soon. Its awful when you get this. I try putting a drop of Olbas Oil in a bowl of boiling water and sitting with my face over it with a towel over my head. Mind don't put more than a drop in, your eyes will thank you later LOL!!
