My up-coming class at The Craft Barn - Hearts and flowers


 Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start. I'm back today to show the sample for my upcoming class at The Craft Barn on Saturday 12th January. There are some places available which can be booked on the Craft Barn website or by calling the Craft Barn on 01737 822961 if you fancy coming along for an all day class of paint, stamping, stenciling, image transfer and modelling paste fun!


The canvas board is a progression of  this layout in my art book, slightly modified to fit in with Craft Barn products. I was very grateful to Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs for giving me permission to use the gorgeous spring flowers image for the class, a great one for image transfer.


There's also stamping with paint and ink, texturing with modeling paste and stenciling, so there's a good array of mixed media techniques to delve into.


To finish off there are some words that I've hand written and a bit of sparkle to liven things up. I thoroughly enjoyed bringing this on from the art book to a class and I'm very excited to see how it will be interpreted by the class participants, that's always the best part!

Enjoy your day.
