What a brilliant weekend Jan, Jackie and I had in Eastbourne! The first Cardinal Colours Seaside retreat was so good last year we were really looking forward to the second one – and we weren’t disappointed. :o) The cost of the retreat (£299) included a choice of four super classes and as many ‘make & takes’ as we could fit in! The page on the right is the LO I did for a sketch challenge, which I was lucky enough to win, and below are all the class projects I did.
My first class on Saturday morning was lead by Sarah-Jane, of Little Musings. I’m a great fan of S-J’s, by the way. The kit for this class, called White Space, included Glitz Designs Afternoon Muse papers. I love all the layering and I’ve learned not to shake a bottle of Chalkboard Mist!
My absolute favourite class of the weekend was the one called Paper Patchwork, also designed by S-J. The colours of the Glitz Design’s Laced with Grace papers are delicious and the finished page is just gorgeous.
On Sunday I went to Lynn and Linda’s (Scrapology) class, We’re all going on a Summer Holiday. I did expect to be serenaded by Cliff but he didn’t appear LOL. This class was right up my street! Lots of bright colours, cutting out and layering. Super!
I have often said I’m not a card maker – but I am slowly becoming a convert. I am so pleased with the cards I made at Lynn’s session, Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside. Lyn gave a super tutorial on using Promarkers for shading and blending; I’ll be dusting mine off now! I may also be investing in the lovely Faye Whittaker stamps we used.
I’m looking forward to next year, Jill!
