Wendy Vecchi UK Workshop 2015 and more...

Hi everyone and welcome. I've been working hard on commissions and DT pieces recently, hence the reason for my 'radio silence' here on the blog, but today saw those done and dusted (almost!) and I had chance to play (with purpose). Needing a gift tag/card for a special present I reached for a tag base created at the Wendy Vecchi UK Workshop in August (more of that below). You'll possibly spot the dilute Archival Reinker on Specialty Stamping Paper in the background of the finished piece...

(click on the image for a closer look)

I used Archival Inks through Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi stencils to add to the background before turning to the stamping and stencilling - I love the ease with which layers can be added to a detailed image when you employ a SiSi set. You may notice the Mini Mat pot, covered in my own blend of Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi embossing powders and the raised flowers, stamped onto Newsprint and added to Clearly for Art. And finally some Remnant Rubs and a seam binding bow added a flourish. I've just got time to add this to the August Make ART Challenge, a fabulous home for anyone who adores anything Wendy Vecchi - I highly recommend you check it out!

Now back to that wonderful Wendy Vecchi workshop at the beginning of August. It's feels like an age since we gathered in London for a day in the company of this very special lady (and her lovely husband Rick) - I know everyone else posted their photos of the day way back when but for me a holiday in Paris followed the very next day and since then I've been chasing my tail!...


We got to create a beautiful box of tags (which I'll share soon) and learn so many clever techniques along the way...


... and got to meet up with so many crafty friends during the day (and for a few hours the night before). You may recognise many of them...





It was a privilege to spend the all too brief time in the company of such creative talent and I shall treasure these memories. The only question now remaining is when can we tempt Wendy back over the pond?!!!

OK, more work to be done so that's it for now. Whatever you're up to take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
