Good morning everyone, Brenda here and I am sharing my project and class photos from our workshop on Saturday.
It was a great day with a fabulous group of participants who enjoyed the session and went away with six new techniques to create metallic effects using DecoArt projects, particularly the media range.
I had devised and created six new techniques -
.... and we spent a large part of the day with me demoing and the group creating their own sample cards for each effect.
Everyone worked hard and got very involved in their samples and I had given each of them a sticky label with the process steps for each one to stick on the back so they could go home and create them all over again and use them as aide memoirs in the future.
I had made a shabby/metallics box and a grungy/metallics box so everyone could choose one to make to keep their technique sample cards in but I knew there wouldn't be time to finish it all but everyone took home two boxes and all the embellishments to create both of them at home. All of the card embellishments were made using the eroded metallics effects.
I highly recommend the fluid acrylic paints for a variety of reasons and for mixed media work they are excellent value for money as you need such little paint to create your effects. They are made with fabulous quality pigments and heavily loaded with them so that a little goes a long way. They are more fluid than regular heavy bodied acrylics and blend well, they are also permanent, flexible and have great adhesion and therefore perfect for all the layers we create. Everyone who attends a workshop gets 10% off all products in the Country View Crafts shop.
My thanks to Sue, Cathryn Nikki, Chris, Linda, Margaret, Heather and Dan for making it a fun day on Saturday with lots of laughs and to Susan for bringing all the products over and creating a mini shop for people to top up their supplies.
Have a fabulous week.
hugs Brenda xxx
