PaperArtsy Day

I was lucky enough to attend a PaperArtsy day with Leandra a few weeks ago with Chris (my sister) and met up with some old friends and blogging buddies – Gillian. Michelle, Lin, Karen, Neil and Helen and also met irl Susan (owner of Country View Crafts) and fellow DT member for CVC, Gabrielle. It was a hot but prolific day making lots of technique samples for teaching the PA products. We covered the range of Fresco Finish paints and glazes, crackle glaze, metal paper, the bumping technique, paint resist, blending paints, layering the paints, sprays, painting on fabric, grunge paste and treasure gold and not only did we use all these products to go with these techniques we also used Jofy, Lin Brown, Lynne Perella and Eclectica stamps. What a great time we had.

I have already posted some projects made with some of the samples from that day.

Thanks for looking.
Have a great day.

Sandy said...

Oh gracious - you were lucky! To use all these products and see them being used. I really don't do well with reading instructions but watching someone do something is worth a million dollars.

Such days are always wonderful. Your creations look great.

Marjie Kemper said...

Honestly, Brenda, it's a good thing we're so far apart as clearly we would bump elbows reaching for all the same supplies! Love this.
