The Craft Barn Extravaganza

Hi everyone! On Monday at the Craft Barn blog we had a post about the June Extravaganza with photographs of some of the demonstrators and some of the gorgeous samples they were showing. It's always a great event for everyone and I know I appreciate all the hard work that goes into organising it by the team at the Craft Barn so that everything always runs very smoothly and we're all looked after so beautifully. Thanks again to everyone, I enjoyed myself as always, catching up with the customers that I've got to know over the last couple of years and also meeting up with blogging pals that came to visit which was a huge treat. A few of my samples are posted on the Craft Barn Blog on Monday's post and I thought I'd post my own photo's here although I didn't manage to take photo's of everything.  


So to start off I made an Easel on an Easel :) with the sweet 'hang me out to dry' Gorjuss girl. She's coloured with pencils and the paper is by Craft Creations.A lovely and very reasonably priced little stamp set with pretty accessory stamps.


Followed by 'Waiting', very sweet too and coloured with copic markers this time. 

I made an ATC with 'Puddle of love' which I covered with book print, stamped over the top and then coloured with pencils.



Tatty and her sunflower image is coloured with copic markers and spritzed afterwards with a shimmer mist. The paper is by Craft Creations. I also did a tag with Tatty on her swing in the same style as the Gorjust tag above and this one is on Monday's post at the Craft Barn blog with lots of other photographs of the Extravaganza.




Enjoy your day :)

So many beautiful projects with different coloring mediums. The first card, the easel on easel, is the one I fell in love with when I saw it on the Craft Barn blog. Your coloring on Kraft CS is beautiful so I had to go and get some to try.
Thank you for sharing your creative talent...lots of inspiration.
