One way to get my scrappin mojo back...

...was to attend a FANTABULOUS class taught by the one and only Ms. Wendy Vecchi! THe class was FANTASTIC! I really enjoyed it, had a lot of fun, and left there feeling more scrappy motivation than I have felt in a loooooong time! The class I took was called "funky flowers" and we spent a good 4 hours playing with Distress inks, Grungeboard, Grungepaper, adhesive...and a few embellies...but the majority was ink, grunge and grunge...AND the really awesome Studio 490 stamps! Here are the six flowers I made!

This was the first one we made, and we hit it with some distress stickles (antique linen), the bottom layer is grungeboard and then their are two layers of grungepaper:

This was the second and most complicated...mine didn't work quite the way it was supposed to, but it's still cute!

This third one I tried out the Mustard Seed ink for the first time on grungeboard...and i was really happy with the result:

this fourth one had a boo-boo when i was making it (flower color is aged mahogany - a gorgeous color on it's own) but i got an extra piece to fix it later: #5 and #6 are my FAVORITES! The dimension is fabulous, the layers...they make me smile!!!

Well, that's all for this moment in time...I have to say that this class was one of the best things I could have done to kickstart my motivation...and Wendy was the coolest of the cool!


  1. Oh my goodness these are so cool! I love every single one of them! Sounds like your class was a lot of fun!

  2. oh, WOW, Lesley!! no wonder you enjoyed the class so much! these flowers are GORGEOUS! i love the second and third the most, but they are ALL so beautiful!


  3. these turned out so great!! I wish i was there to make them too!
