Workshop Wonders

Perhaps a bit cheeky to call them 'wonders' but I did enjoy the making of them.  A friend and I attended another Judith Maslen Workshop down in the New Forest on Saturday.  Our days there are always such fun and so instructive.  They are held every couple of months from March through to November and I admit to having booked my place at them all this year.
We always manage a couple of projects and our two yesterday were very popular with all.

This is the first one - all whitework - called 'Flowers by the Window'.

And the second one is called 'Pink Fantasy' - although I used red ink for mine. 
This was an exercise in penmanship and then using various dilutions of the same colour to add dimension and shading with a brush.
Judith will notice - if she visits - that the border I have presented here is a little different to what it was when I left the building.  I was trimming the edge and caught the scallops in the guillotine so I had improvise.  I cut off the originals and made a new larger parchment backing piece with new scallops.
Here it is:


  1. They are absolutely gorgeous Carol.
    Well done. I so wish I could get to classes as these cards are the best in card making in my opinion.

  2. Both beauties Carol but I think the first one is exceptional. Hugs x

  3. Two gorgeous cards Carol, especially like the second one. xx

  4. Both of these cards are super Carol. I don't think I would be able to pick a favorite though.

  5. Thank you for your kind comments Ladies. They are very much appreciated.
