When Timeworn Met the Book of Secrets!

I ran a workshop at the Stamp Attic in Wantage on Saturday and got very inspired by what I saw there.

Lewis, a participant on the Book of Secrets workshop I held there a few weeks back had used the techniques on an artists manikin and gave it wings, I wished I had my camera with me at the time so I could show you.
I met some lovely people on the workshop and just want to say a big hello to you all, and thanks for all the laughs!!
Anyway I will get to the point, I also met Sue Roddis there who's work I absolutely love, I was lucky enough to have a look at some of her journal work, it was the front cover of one of these journals along with the winged manikin that inspired the artwork below, its the Book box from the Book of Secrets workshop, painted with techniques using Decoart Traditions from the Timeworn workshop!

Hope you likey!
