Andy's London workshop

Hi Everyone.
I took myself off to Andy's London workshop yesterday and had a fantastic time creating an ATC box and 5 ATCs using lots of his products including the new pastes. I thought I would show you how I finished the ATCs off at home with more of Andy's and some of my own supplies.

Andy demonstrates his products through Creative Expressions on YouTube and I have given you the link to them with each of the samples below.

Structure Paste
This is a beautiful smooth textured paste great for using with stencils but Andy shows you other fabulous ways to use it which included the background on this sample.

Strata Paste
This will give you some incredible textures and on this ATC you can see how well his transfers work even with the bumpy textured surface.

Resist Paste and Rice Papers
Andy's video shows how you how to see the resist paste with two layers of paint but we used it over his rice papers and it worked beautifully.

Lava paste
As you will see on the video Andy demonstrate great ways to use this product which has another amazing texture. At the workshop we used it with a palette knife and a brayer.

I am already looking forward to the next workshop as Andy thinks he will use the London venue again. You have perhaps already seen photos on FaceBook. It was a great room with plenty of space, Di from Tando brought along a pop up shop with lots of gorgeous goodies and lunch provided for extra if you wanted it, just soup and bread but perfect for the day.

Have fun playing with the new pastes and don't forget to take a look at the videos for lots of ideas.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. These are fabulous, Brenda. I wish I'd known about the workshop... ah well, maybe next time! I love your individual additions to all those scrumptious textures and techniques. The Route 66 and the Gypsy Moth are probably my favourites, but they're all fab.
