Back to class... The Art Society - Soar

Hi there.  I don't really believe in New Year's resolutions, but I have been thinking that I would like to do more different things, learn more, try more, and most of all, use some of the stash!! 

I have always been interested in Christy Tomlinson's style, and when I saw she was doing an online class this year, I thought 'Aha, that's for me!'  So, along with Kate Crane's calendar challenge, and The Craft Barn Quote's and Lyrics challenge...hmm...we shall see, and a few classes with Kate and Andy Skinner, and I have to fit Just Scrapbooking in...Aaaargh!  But such fun...  I wonder, will I be able to fit work in?

It's not appropriate for me to do a step by step on this, but I will add a few photos.  It isn't a copy of Christy's but it is in the same style, but perhaps a little more blingy - of course!!

Just checking everything fits.

Painted book pages

Spellbinders dies cuts, sprayed, of course, with cosmic shimmers

Butterflies and peacock feathers!  Match made in heaven

Normally, pink would be my colour of choice, but...

...cream looked so much better!  Still needed some bling, tho
Just a touch of Alchemy on the butterflies, and on the letters...

Hope you like!
