Weekend Workshops!

Still trying to catch up since returning from Decoart but it has been proving impossible, I returned on Thursday 2nd and this is my suitcase, still mostly unpacked!!

The first weekend back I was at the Craft Barn, here is one of the projects we were working on, these are book boxes.

While I remember I did promise a more detailed picture of the Canvas I painted while at Decoart so here goes, lots of Modelling Paste, Traditions, Americana, stencilling and a lush new Dazzling Metallic colour called Peacock pearl.

Not only have I been running more Decoart workshops but have been busy in the background and all I can say at the moment is that there is some very exciting news coming so keep tuned!!

Ok this weekend I was at The Craft Den on Friday holding a Gelli plate workshop and then on Saturday it was time for the Tando Clock, this is a new revised version using som new colours.... here are some of the brilliant finished clocks, a big hello to Lynne and everyone attending, I had a great time.

Finally on Sunday I was at The Stamp Pad, Thanks Gwen for your wonderful hospitality and again a big hello to everyone attending, you made some amazing boxes!

Thanks for reading,
