Way back in April I went to the Paperie’s 20th retreat. 20th!!!! We had a blast, and did crazy things, and made fun stuff, and learned cool techniques, and bought lots of new product, and drank Bailey’s at 5am (ok, that may or may not have been just me, in my tea). Anyway, it was good.

And here’s something I made! The retreats are really one of the only times in the year that I make LO’s just for me with no Creative Team or class deadlines in view. It’s when I get to play and go nuts. So I did!


I love this insanely bad camera phone pic of Molly, Gabe, and so I turned it B&W to offset the terrible colour and so that I could use any and all colours I wanted. I also took a whole pack of diecuts and layered the heck out of them!

For the background I smeared paste over a stencil and overheated it to make it puffy. I sprayed lots of Prima ColorBloom over and let it drip.
