Quilt and craft Show

Yesterday I was demonstrating at the Melbourne Quilt and craft Fair on a stall for our wholesale art supplier. I was demonstrating at the BFDA stand using Chroma paints with mediums and so all last week and late (1am) into Friday night I was prepping background papers and making cards and scrapbook pages with the papers I had created or the techniques I had used. When I got to the show I had about a square metre of space to set up and demonstrate in,  and the next 3 1/2 hours went in a busy and happy blur. I was so happy to be able to share ideas with customers and help them with their questions. I found that most interest was in texture so I mainly demonstrated stenciling with texture paste and paint.

I had all good intentions of taking a photo there but remembered on the drive home that I had neglected this little task. Anyway, here are the papers that I was demonstrating and had prepared earlier.....
 and a couple of scrapbook pages too...
I would have liked more time to really have a good look at all of the other stalls as this was the first time I had attended this Fair and it was a feast for the senses. I came came home with quilting material even though I don't quilt and some gemstone crystals to use in my beading as well as some art supplies. So many ideas, so little time to do them in....

Overall I really had a fun day and met some great people. If I have inspired just one person then I am a happy girl.... Now to put these papers to good use and do some more journal pages.

Hope you are having a creative day
Lee:)
