Workshop with Jayne

As the workshop season now seems to be here it was time for a visit to the wonderful Jayne Nesotrenko's workshop in July.  I had missed her earlier workshop due to being away on holiday in Arizona and  as I had only been back a week was still suffering a little from Jet Lag - it had hit me hard this time.

I had a really good trip seeing such wonderful sights as the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and the Rainbow Bridge, Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly.  I even signed up to the Michael's loyalty card and found a wonderful craft shop in Page that had gorgeous papers that I just had to bring back with me. 

Jayne's workshop was based on her new collection "Grande Journeys" from her "Just my Imagination" range and  I was bowled over by them.  Jayne had released them 3 days before I was due on the workshop and I did not really get a good chance to look at them before I went.  The samples that she had on display were superb and I had seen that we were going to make a Japanese fan card. 

The fan shape was made using the Glitter Girls Elegance & Fantasy board and we got to choose what coloured background card we wanted.  The scene in the background is Jayne's Kyoto Garden which we coloured, cut and attached to the card and Japanese  Geisha which we also coloured.  We had the choice of whether to decoupage the image or just have it as a single image.  I decided to decoupage and ended up with 4 layers. 

The flowers and fan were from "The Grande Journey Accessories" stamp plate and again were coloured and attached to the card. 

I really enjoyed making this card and the instructions to make this are on Jayne's website here .
