Japanese Tea House

Yesterday I attended an excellent workshop at Victoria Stampers and the tutor for the day was my good friend Neet of Hickdorums blog.(If you look at hickydorums blog there is so much more information and photos of samples of this project.) I really enjoyed making the Tea House and, amazingly, managed to finish it all in class. Didn't think I would as there was so much stamping and it is quite a complex construction (and we do a lot of chatting and laughing)... but most people did complete. Thanks so much to Neet for a great class.
The beads and tags are like mini pulleys which can be raised and lowered and the whole thing folds up into a book structure for presentation. Quite novel!

Beautiful Jo, love how you take the ideas of the workshop and run with it to produce your own very clever style. Inked, spritzed and beautiful. Px
