My little crafting world....

Hi all
I'm a complete craft addict! I have a small business called Surrey Crafts teaching craft workshops from my studio in Esher, Surrey and at venues around the country. I teach mixed media, decorative painting, card making and papercrafts, jewellery making and creative embroidery classes.

Mini books for the September workshop

Here are samples of the second part of the workshops I'll be running on Saturday. Little bits of colourful fun that can be adapted, added to embellished to your hearts content! We'll use alcohol markers, paints, mica powders, stamps and inks to create these little lovies!

One side of the concertina fold-out

The other side of the concertina fold out, and a very different look. I'll enter these into the LEJ Designs Challenge as their current theme is 'layers' and this project has quite a few (inside & out!), the My Creative Moments challenge and Ali-Craft Blog (Great to see you at Ali Pally on Sunday honey!) as their Challenges are seasons/ Autumn and the colours I've used for the main sample are very Autumnal,  another Autumn challenge is on the Artistic Stamper blog and as the flower image on the front of the book is a 'twinchie' (2 inches x 2 inches) I'll also enter the 'Show us Your Twinchies' challenge as their theme is Autumn too!
Here is a pic with the other colour sample.
I'll also add this to the 'Pile it on Challenge' as these fit both the 'cool or warm' themes!
