PaperArts On Tour 2013

Well what fun we had......onsies, hot chocolate, chocolate fountains, make & takes, awesome food, classes and lots & lots of laughs...

I wasn't too mean this year, and remembered by Sunday that most people just wanted an easy layout, without tons of fussy cutting, so this is what we did, or started to do, most had got the basic idea and just had the photos to add ! Hopefully they will be finished before next years PAOT !!!!

 Saturday evenings class was an experiment with tea bags, I thought it worked very effectively. We mixed the tea leaves with some gesso and spread it like sand on the layout, dried it, we then dribbled another soaked teabag over the top to give the old fashioned tea stain. After more drying we inked it with Tim Holtz's distress ink.

 Early Saturday mornings class, a few minor disasters at the beginning, but luckily they were sorted and we did progress, I introduced the ink stain splatters which everybody had a go at, and even those who thought they wouldn't really like them did and a high sale of stains was reported from the PAOT shop......

So that was another very successful PAOT, looking forward again to next year already, I know spaces are selling fast already so get in there and book if you want to go !
