New workshop for CVC

Double Trouble

I am calling the next workshop for Country View Crafts "Double Trouble" purely and simply because we will be making two projects this time round.


I love this frame as it is more understated than other projects I do, with less depth and layers but enough for it to still look interesting and I think this simplicity is a great contrast to the recesses and embellishments and allow them to pop out more.


Each of the recesses is made up in the same way but with different designs and embellishments.


The fall foliage thinlits create gorgeous leaves .....


.... that sit on the textured background beautifully.


This has a harvest feel to it as well as a thanksgiving one too.


The shrine is a fun make to finish off the day creating lots of texture .....


... adding Tim Holtz embellishments and die-cuts .......


... and creating a niche with elements that will be perfect for a Halloween display.


There are more details over on the Country View Crafts Project Blog and the workshop is available to book on the Country View Crafts website. Click on the highlighted words and you will be transported over to both places to find out more details.

I thought we were going to have a few warm days this week but today has started cloudy and considerably cooler than I thought, I hope the next few days will be better.

have a great week.

Love the two different projects. It really gives the participant avenues to stretch themselves. Love the sentiment on the autumn frame. Those recesses are perfect for a project. And that shrine with all its lovely texture and color. What fun. -- Mary Elizabeth
