All these photos were taken early evening on Sunday, after the conference and after we have packed everything at the shop. It was freezing cold and wet with a strong wind blowing, but we were adament coming back with at least a few shots of the Strand beach.
The idea behind these really peculiar looking photos, was to create an illusion that we are actually touching the koppies in the distance ... so there was really a method behind the madness.
Then of course the highlight of the conference was that Doing Life's representation, of 4 ladies, walked away with the honours for three of the five projects presented during the 2-day conference. I won the canvas painting/distressing technique with the above project I created with Amber's photos. I am definitely not an off the page person, but really enjoyed this project with which we had quite a bit of freedom to do our own thing ... it was very similar to decoupaging.
And then Sheila walked away with Retha van der Walt's class for her stunning layout (don't have a pic of it yet) she did with her daughter's hens' party photos. Below was my take on Retha's layout. Sheila also walked off with a third category which was a single page presented by Judy of Forever Memories. Well done Sheila!!
Unfortunately, I cannot reveal the double page layout I presented, as it will be one of the layouts the Tweespruit ladies in the Free State will be doing at their upcoming one and half day Scrapaganza on 18 & 19 June.
