Hello friends,
As promised I wanted to share with you the project I made when I was away.
This was Donna Salazar's class and I enjoyed every second of it! 
As you can see some serious distressing took place!
The elements I love are the cute bird and flower...not a butterfly in sight!
The die templates are Mix'd Media ElementsBitty Blossoms and Shadow Flowers.
The embossing is super enhanced on the leaves, you can achieve this by dampening 
your paper/cardstock just a tiny bit, spritz it lightly before cutting and embossing.  
Distressed, shabby chic projects are so up my street, they allow me not to panic 
if things are not quite straight or inked properly! 
And here we all are!  The complete Spellbinders 2012 Design Team. 
You can see many technique videos that Donna has put together on 
You Tube featuring her Spellbinders die template collection.
Back tomorrow friends.

Hi Christine, What a wonderful day you must have had. Must have a go at this, love the use of newsprint and diecuts for the background. This would be a good project for the grandchildren over the Easter holidays. Anne x

Hi again Christine,
Well it's been a busy day for me with my grandson, so I'm sorry I am so late commenting.
Love the photos, it looks like you had great fun. I love the piece of work you did with the 'class', very trendy shabby and distressed. A lovely memory for your craft room wall.
All the best Linda
