Something a little...

...different.

Saturday was the monthly "all day" parchment class at Pinnacle Crafts but folk who are 'parchers' would have found it a little strange this month.

There was no scribing, embossing, pricking or snipping going on. In fact, there was some straight-forward tracing and cutting followed by lots of...WATER and ink.

Yes I know, shock...horror...water; dishes of the stuff.

There were lots of traced pieces...
 ...to cut out of our parchment.
Then we soaked each piece in an ink/water bath and applied additional colour around the edges...
 ...a process that had to be carried out quickly...
 ...and then the individual pieces were left to dry whilst we toddled off for a spot of lunch.
It is surprising how quickly the parchment dries and we were soon curling and putting together layers to create...
 ...pretty parchment-paper flowers. Here are the 3 completed but waiting for the glue to dry...
 ...so that each flower could be teased and shaped as wished.
This was the final result (sorry about the glare)...
...a pretty spray that can be used as a button-hole or as a floral piece in the home.

Thank you Joanne for a lovely class............................................................................
