Tag - You're It! . . .

...was the playshop this week at Puffin Design , and didn't this group ROCK it!?


Using all sorts of tag blanks from white to kraft to Gelli-printed ones, they simply had WAY too much fun.

Gay and Barb tear into it
The mom and daughters trio were a delight, outdoing each other on a constant basis, and 

Jennifer, Carol and Nicole egg each other on

 moving so fast their hands were a blur.


The group generated somewhere between three and six tags each in a three hour session - amazing!


 The studio was a riot of colour and laughter as they stamped,


 stencilled,

 and used every medium in sight (and there were at least 10 of them).


The tags came one after the other, all evening long,





and sometimes three at once!


 You can imagine the angst as they waited for things to dry.


 All in all, I'd say it was the best kind of evening - chaos, colour and beauty -


 everywhere.

If you've got a yen to get your creativity on, Bart has an upcoming Illuminating Workshop on Wednesday,  November 25 (6 - 9 pm).  He's a dynamite teacher (he taught me how to wire a lamp, so he could teach anyone), and you'll go home with a completed piece of beauty too!  Pop into Puffin today and register!

  3. I can see where this event was a huge hit. Smiles abound. Industry everywhere and a lovely, BIG tangled mess of materials!
    All the tags are wonderful, especially that last one! And oh, the wine, I love that there was wine served!

    1. It was great, Val, and I'm taking some time to think about a daSytime one (or more). Do you know of anyone else who might be interested? How about some Creston Art Club members perhaps?

  6. This must be the best way to craft, spending time with other like-minded crafters. Brilliant! I am lucky enough to be going to a Melt Pot workshop next week with Hels Sheridan and I just can't wait! Thanks for the visit to mine Win, pleased you liked the Masterboards and cards. Happy crafting, Angela x

  8. That looks like SO much fun, and what beautiful results!!!

    (My daughter-in-law is fortunate enough to have a grandfather who has all the knowledge, tools, and supplies on hand to create all kinds of amazing things like that lamp, so she is taking a course, too, in a manner of speaking!)
