Haven't blogged for a good while - I am immersed in the words of my book and going through everything to see if there's anything I have forgotten. I have only one week to go, I plan to send it all off on Friday 30 March - well......that's the plan.
In the meantime, I had a small wee workshop that I was delivering for Liverpool Limmud. It's a Jewish learning conference that happens in Liverpool every 2 years, all denominations are most welcome and it is a jam packed day full of talks, workshops, lectures and food! They asked if I would be interested to do a Jules Dolly workshop - I only had an hour - so I wondered what could I do that could be linked to a Jewish theme. I decided to create a new design and teach everyone how to make a decoupage greeting card.
I love this process - starting off with the sketch, then the colour, then the paint, then the finishing touches to the design. Moving straight to copier and reducing the image - Voila - we have a design for an A5 card.
It was fun. I introduced them to my 6 step guide Cut Glue Stick Build Embellish Varnish. Can be done with wrapping paper but obviously it's more fun to do it using your own design!
