Cardinals Burlap Panel (1 of 4)

Saturday saw me leaving the house early to travel down to Southampton for my first time teaching at Pickwell Farm. If you like fresh from the ground produce and to ‘pick your own’ this is a great place to go. Alongside that it has an amazing craft section organised and run by Carolyn, she not only sells a wide range of craft items, she runs workshops herself and also invites others to teach there too. It is packed with so many goodies you would be amazed if you haven’t visited there.

Today I am sharing one of the four burlap panels I designed and also some photos from Saturday too.

To start we covered all four panels in the same way but using different papers and masks to achieve different looks.

Everyone soon got busy creating and learning or re-visiting techniques.

We used coredinations papers, sanding, inking and painting to get some lovely textured effects.

Pam loves inking everything like me and soon got down to gathering all her greenery and blending both green and brown distress inks over the pieces.

Anne said she was very new to these products and techniques, but looked a real natural to me.

We added an altered muse token, glittery stars and used a black pen to get the more realistic markings on the birds.

It was also lovely to meet up with Von (on the left) as I haven’t see her for ages, at lunch time we mooched in the shop and had a good catch up.

As always it was amazing to see everyone's different versions at the end.

They did a brilliant job and they all looked so different.

Thank you Carolyn for having me and I’m already looking forward to my next visit in January when I will be teaching a vintage tag book.

Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
