Today I have the pleasure of teaching ladies at the Surreal creations retreat. It was lovely at every fine detail. The ladies were beautiful to teach and I hope I inspired them today. The food... well don't get me started divine comes to the mind instantly! Not to mention the absolutely stunning accommodation.
It was such a lovely retreat and I was sad to leave as I was just there to teach today. It was a quieter smaller group and so I wanted to give the ladies something special as a memento for my class so last night I created these personalised tags that they could hang on their tote bags. They were so much fun to create.
Next I coloured up the embossed metal shapes with Tuskineko Gold metal StayzOn. I also added a little purple colour with a Copic Marker. I made up the bead charm using some beautiful beads and wire from Beadalon and added that to the Bezel. I also used the Beadalon Jump ring mandrel which the lovely Julianna Hudgins shows me how to use at the Spellbinders Retreat. The last step was to add the personalised chipboard alpha for each of the ladies names and fill the bezels with some Susan Lenart Kazmar Ice Resin.
When cured I added them to come hand made tags that had just a little spray with a stencil and some scripts stamping randomly. Each tag had the words 'Dare to be the best you can '
Here are some pics from the day.
Busy Busy teaching
