My friend Leonie and I attended the Scrapbook Convention at Emperor's Palace on Saturday. It was a one-day event focusing on mixed media techniques. I have learnt to go to these events with low expectations, because then I can't be disappointed. I always enjoy spending time with Leonie, and being around creative people and stuff, so it was a good day for me.
The class by Glenda Viljoen was awesome - she shared a ton of techniques from Ranger University. I have many of the Tim Holtz products but don't always know how to use them or use them incorrectly. I learnt so much in her class - local South African scrappers rock!!
This is a canvas mini album, my album cover is pictured below - less stuff and a whole lot simpler than the original! We got to try out the new pan pastels in this class...not sure that I'll buy them, but glad that I got to play with a new product. Donna Downey LOVES pan pastels...me - not so much
...and then I spent the whole day packing up on Sunday (ugh!!). My good friends Lynette and Andy helped me with this monster job. I am such a bad packer and I lose interest quickly. The big truck arrives on Monday morning so I can't dawdle too much.
My new home has been painted out and the wooden floors have been fitted in the bedrooms. It's looking lovely. I can't wait to live in this beautiful space
this beautiful shout of red and orange was waiting to welcome me at the entrance to my new home... hello
