Don’t you think it would be horrid to live in a world without seasons? I find towards the end of summer I’m kind of looking forward to getting snugly and then towards the end of winter, I’m rearing to get out and get a bit sun on my back and colour on my cheeks. So now roll on winter.
Anyhows, I digress: this week’s page is….. ummm, The Page With No Name. You see, I’ve made it up but without pics (hence no title either). I’ve used the Kaiser Craft range (see attached) which is currently one of my fave paper ranges. I think the papers lend themselves towards sepia pics, possibly with a bit of a heritage feel but I don’t see why you can’t use colour and any pics that take your fancy. You will need:
1 A5 landscape (half an A4, 20cm x 15cm)
3 (2up’s, 10cm x 7.5) landscape
1 jumbo – portrait
Workshops are on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday morning 09h30 – 12h30 and Thursday evening 18h00 – 21h00 unless otherwise stated. And still the cheapest workshops in town.
Sadly, I have absolutely no news this week. There is an ancient Chinese curse that goes “May you live in interesting times” so maybe it’s just as well.
When phoning me on my land line, I’d be grateful if you’d use my new Vox line instead: 087 802 9718. It won’t cost you any more than the Telkom line.
I’ll end with this bit of a fun – nothing more enjoyable than an intelligent insult…..
