Here are some more pics of the projects from the weekend.
Saturday we made a Lynne Perrella book full of stamped and stencilled fun.
Back and Front covers, tied with beaded thread
Some of us "may" have done a little online shopping for some of the Technique Tuesday stamps we used (the set that these diamonds came from was gorgeous)
Sunday was a day of techniques... as I said in the post yesterday, we tried loads of different things - tags galore!
Love the one on the left, removing the gelato through a stencil with a babywipe, great resist!
the red one is gelato over a clear embossed stencilled image and the gelato removed, the drippage on the bottom one is great, and the other is just blended.
Love the pastel shimmer of the bluey/purple one (over gesso, but it does dry a bit sticky)
You'll have to forgive my big blobby stems, when I painted over the grunge paste my stencil wasn't placed back accurately!
We also tried crackle glaze on fabric, but I've not got a picture of that as my crackle wasn't great - my top layer of paint wasn't thick enough - and brushos - but I mixed mud due to my poor colour choice so you're not seeing that either!
So a big thanks again to Lin B for her trouble with these workshops, and to Lin, Lesley, Karen, Emma and Sam for the fun.
I'm looking forward to some shopping (ahem) and playing with these tags and pages I started!
