I was actually in the right place at the right time to take in a workshop by Louise Collins at Papermaze on Wednesday morning! So along with a lovely group of ladies I created my page - well more of a picture for the wall as it's never going to fit into an album!

 My photo was taken in Rendlesham Forest in November 2011

We were given some corrugated card in the form of a pizza box to cut into a circle, and strip back to show the 'ribs'.

The twigs, fir cones and acorns had been gathered by Lou in advance of the class.

There were brads (Prima Sunrise-sunset Mechanicals Vintage Trinkets), white Bazzill card stock, Kaisercraft flat backed pearls in red, two Studio Calico clock faces and a sheet of Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic Textbook paper.

Also a Kars wooden ornament house which I swapped for a toadstall from my stash when I got home.

We were able to use some leaf punches, a Cheery Lynn die - Window A, distressing ink, cheesecloth, Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel and three different sprays, varying makes - to add colour to the punched leaves in yellow orange and brown. We also used a hot glue gun and a heat gun.

The leaves were punched from Bazzill and coloured with spray inks, distresses and inked again.

Thanks to Louise and Vanessa for a great workshop.
Thanks for looking.
