From the weekend | Art Specially 2015

Marsha Valk | Scrapbookzolder at Art Specially

Art Specially 2015 in Nijkerk was a blast! Birgit Koopsen and I spent all weekend make ‘n taking at the Scrapbookzolder stand.

At Birgit’s table participants could make a Gelli Plate print with her brand spanking new Carabelle Studio stamps:

At my table it was all about spritzing with Letraset ProMarkers and NeonMarkers and the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer and (almost) no cutting in craft sheets:

Birgit taught her Gelli Plate printing techniques in an hour-long workshop:

And I tried really hard to teach how to make fun backgrounds with Letraset ProMarkers and NeonMarkers:

The hours flew by! In fact: the entire weekend went by way too fast! It’s so weird that something you’ve been looking forward to for many months is suddenly over!

I saw and spoke to a lot of familiar faces and I’m terribly sorry I still missed so many of the people who I know where there too!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hi and/or took the time to take the make ‘n take or the workshop: you’ve made my weekend!

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Scrapbookzolder for having me!

And finally: thank you Birgit for your lovely companionship! It was fun!!!
