Distress to impress....

That was the name of the class I attended last Saturday at my local scrapbook shop. Though I enjoyed the class very much, the papers and colours wer'e not my choice. We distressed first layer of paper by screwing it andinking with distress ink and roughing up th edges before sewing on to card. Then we stitched down the next piece of paper using stranded cotton, covered brads in fabric, used tape to frame the photo and stuck down a piece of very stiff hessian. We cut a flower from a sheet of paper and used some adhesive BG letters for the sentiment. The photo is of my son Wayne and his girlfriend Kirsty, a ticket is tucked behind the photo for adding some journaling. An added bonus of this class was I got to meet up with an old friend I hadn't seen for almost 10 years and we have agreed to meet regularly and craft together.
Thanks for stopping by
Hugs Joy xx

That's a beautiful page (and a lovely couple). You actually inspired me to contact a friend I haven't seen in a long time... we used to have a great time creating together. And since I don't have your email - I'll answer your question here - yes, I do ship to UK (free of charge). Thanks for visiting my blog! xo
