Image Transfer Workshop

I have just spent the weekend at the Craft Barn where on Saturday we were demoing Xmas cards, a bit out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed it.

On Sunday I held the Rejoice workshop which involved paint and rust techniques followed by image transfer and two step crackle application.
A big hello to everyone attending… cakes to die for and a very talented bunch!
Here was my original piece.

Unfortunately we struggled for time on this workshop, all the elements were made but we did not get time to antique the two part crackle medium and fit the bits together so the pieces were taken home to add the finishing touches but all the techniques were covered.
Here are the pictures of everyone's pieces before antiquing and adding the remaining elements, I think you will agree that all of them are brilliant!

Finally I noticed a parcel placed in my paint brush bag, I checked it for ticking and apprehensively opened it to reveal this fantastic Edward Monkton cup!!
A huge thank you to whoever left this, there was no name on the tag but just to let you know I love it!!
Thanks for reading,
