Workshop Jenni Bowlin by Jo-Anne

Just finished the project I started last Saturday in Ede at the Jenni Bowlin workshop given by Jo-Anne. What a sweet girl!!!

I have learned a couple of new techniques that I'm so glad with! Especially the technique how to glue pages of a book together in an easy way. I will show you this technique later when I can make pictures of it while I'll be making a new altered book.

It was hard working all day, so there wasn't much time to get to know the other girls.
For me it was a long day!!
I woke up at 6 a.m. and left my house at 7.15 a.m.. I drove to Heidi's home, where I left my dad's car and Heidi and I drove off in her car around 8 a.m..
We arrived in Ede around 9.30 a.m. and just made a quick shopping tour in Scrappen doe je zo. It's such a shame that the store has to close because of health problems of the owner! It's not only the shop that is great but they also have this huge space for workshops and crops. Because the store is closing we only had to pay 50% on everything!!!
I bought lots of stuff: from Jenni Bowlin but also stamps from Jim Holtz and some minis from PaperArtsy which I think are very cool. Didn't buy much paper because I have loads of it and I really want and have to use them.
In our lunch break we shopped again and after we said goodbye to Jo-Anne we returned for the last time to the store.

We left Ede around 5.30 p.m. and were at Heidi's place around 7 p.m.. I was home a little over 7.30 p.m.. Feeling really tired, too tired to scrap!!

I felt better yesterday and worked really hard to finish the book and this morning I took the pictures outside in our back yard on the terrace.
I just show some of the pages of the mini book I've made! The mini book is made with fabric and paper. I have stiffened the fabric using gel medium. In that way you can also stamp on the fabric as I have done.
