Hi, i different post today.
I went to the NEC last week to hobbycraft show.
The show has really changed this year, as a lot of companies did not attend this year due to the high costs and other commitments.
So i did feel the card making and mixed media took i hit, there were none of the new CHA products, I was looking for Tim Holtz and Prima, nothing new. I felt a lot of exhibiters were selling off old stock
But to make the best of a day out, i found two new to me, hobbies.
Wow, i attended all three workshops and loved them, they really are taking on mixed media.
First was this fish, this is how it started.
and how it ended
Next was this heart
The end result.
Then a small canvas with odds and ends.
These workshops are so good as you could do whatever you wanted with colours and designs.
Such great products, think they are addictive.
They have so many possibilities.
Will be making another fish.
Next was felting and made this cute brooch.
I was shocked how well it came together.
Very therapeutic stabbing a sponge.
Again possibilities are endless, small panel on a card or in a frame.
Hope you like my new hobbies, just need more time to play.
Thank you for visiting.xx
