Nyt keväällä osallistuin taas Liesbeth Fidderin leimailukurssille Amalian tiloissa Espoon Kaisankodissa. Tällä kertaa ehdin osallistua vain yhdelle kurssille, joka oli ATC-kurssi. Kursseilla on tosi kiva käydä. Siellä oppii aina jotain uutta ja muiden askartelijoiden kanssa on mukavaa. Nyt, kun on olen muutamalla kurssilla jo ollut, alan tuntemaan ihmisiä. Aiemmin askartelin vain itsekseni, mutta kursseilla (ja myös facebookin askarteluryhmissä) pääsee juttelemaan samanhenkisten kanssa askarteluasioista - ja myös ihan muusta. Kurssit ovat siis askarteluterapiaa parhaimmillaan! :)
Now in the spring I attended Liesbeth Fidder's stamping craft course in Amalia again. This time I had time to participate in only one course, which was an ATC course. Participating in courses is fun. There's always something new to learn and chatting with other crafters is nice. Now, as I have already participated in a couple of course, I start to know more people. Previously I only crafted by myself, but in the courses (and also in the craft groups on facebook) I can talk with like-minded people about craft stuff - and also about something entirely different. The courses are crafting therapy at its best! :)
First we made five cards, where we stamped the same rose in the middle and then we made them different. We were able to choose what techniques we wanted to use and there was a lot of choice (too much maybe!). :) I tried in addition to stamping also embossing on one of the roses to make it into a "glass rose". Pretty cool effect! We used lovely Art Journey stamps.
Next we got four cards, which were one big picture, but also interesting alone. I loved this background I made, I could have blanked out the center stamp completely. :)
