The second layout

This is the second of Michelle's layouts from the weekend. We used a paint splatter technique on the paper to start us off - made a bit of a mess on the pavement outside!
I must admit I wasn't loving the threading of the beads for the wirey bit at the bottom of the layout but eventually liked the end result, although it was very nearly abandoned a couple of times- I couldn't get the knack of keeping the shape and  threading the beads... there was a lot of ' leg  jiggling ' going on !I definitley think if ever the chance arises - jewellery making is not for moi !
It's going to be another crafty day tomorrow as I am off  to a new one for me- with Ifa Zainon - I shall be meeting the lovely Deb there too- so we should have a fun day.
Now- it's Friday-its the return of Strictly Come Dancing tonight - can't wait won't wait!

The beading was well worth the effort - another stunner.

I love those beads and will be expecting an instruction on how to do them later today! I love the comment about leg jiggling, to those who don't know Denise personally I would like to explain that when she isn't happy with something on a layout and trying to get it sorted so it looks perfect, she starts jiggling her legs as she concentrates hard on her dilemma. When I sit next to her at a crop I can always tell when she isn't happy with something as her legs start jiggling!

I'm laughing at Deb's leg jiggling explanation!

I would love to go to Ifa's crop. Say hello to her from me :)

Oh, and I love the paint splattery effect too
