Hello all! How are you? I hope you've survived the weather. It really has been incredibly windy up here - hope all is okay where you are.
On Saturday I had the most wonderful day at a workshop at Clarity Cumbria with the wonderful Jo Rice. We all spent the day decorating letters spelling a 5 letter word. I chose the word Dream and these are my results:
I used a different technique on each letter but in all cases started with gesso then worked throughout with paperartsy paints. On the D I used the Tim Holtz paper distress mosaic kit. I made the papers up using distress inks (thanks Babs) and an Indigo blu stamp. On the R I used a clarity stencil and grunge paste and after painting added glass beads. The E was first painted a purple colour then paperartsy crackle glaze was added before overpainting in pink. Once dry I stamped with a clarity stamp. The A was painted then stamped in versa mark with the clarity snowflake stamps and white embossing powder was added. I also added some blue dots that I later topped with glossy accents. The M had Jo's bubbles added in Wendy Vecchi crackle paste and when dry was painted. Next I added flitterglu and flake using an indigoblu stamp. Finally I added glossy accents to the blobs too.
A really fun day - we had a christmas buffet :
which was wonderful ... and plenty of time to be nosy!
So a wonderful day all in all!
I can't believe we're into December tomorrow - where does the time go?
Have a lovely day!
