July Craft Stamper Project (written by Judith)

Now that we've  all posted our Flag Books, and had time for the dust to settle, we'd like to let you know what Jo has chosen as our next project. She has chosen Linda Elbourne's 'Playing Tag' on page 16 and 17 of the July edition of Craft Stamper magazine.
Linda's example is a lovely zingy red and gold creation, full of texture and bits and pieces of Maya Road chip, Ideology fragments and a Memory Frame in the centre. Where will we go with our own pieces? I for one will remember Linda, and the lovely class that we took with her at the beginning of June at LB Crafts, when I am working on my example. It was a time when we were all able to craft together, and chat and laugh, and spend some quality time in each other's company.
For those of you who are new to our blog, this is where we have an opportunity to feel as though we are crafting together, even though we live miles apart, because we are working on the same project. However, no conferring is allowed, and we usually end up with very different end products, although there have been a couple of close shaves!
We hope that you will come back to see our finished canvases in a week or two, and we may show you a couple of progress reports along the way, time permitting.

I was so eager to have a go at this project mine's almost finished but it's had to go on a back burner now as urgent bits have to get underway.

Like you the mention of Linda's name or seeing any creation of her's will always remind me of the two occasions when I've been able to get together with my 3 buddies all at the same time. The first time at Ally Pally when I could have watched Linda demo for hours (and almost did) and the second time at our smashing Retreat. Oooh, that was just the of best times!!!

I'm glad Jo chose Linda's project as it would have been my choice too had it been my turn.

Hugs

I think I've picked us a cracker here and it will be tough to come up with something that has the class of Linda's brilliant canvas. I am thinking I might be the one to deviate most from the original. But then I'm on Plan G aready so who knows what I'll come up with. I'll not be the first post this time as I have to fit the project in around my travels but hopefully I won't be too far behind the deadline.

Thanks for picking this Jo, it is going to be a great project.

Yes, I had forgotten Lesley, Linda E has featured in both our full qurtet get-togethers hasn't she? I am glad she is doing a happy dance, because i think maybe we are too. I have been doing some flower making today inspired by Linda's teaching!! She was right, the fear has gone!! I have chosen a truly awesome and mad colour scheme for my project, I just hope it works!!
