A Textured Canvas Workshop

I recently did a workshop with a lovely group of ladies making this textured canvas.
There are numerous layers of papers, paints, texture paste through masks, stamps, tea and embellishments and although I prepped by doing the die-cutting before hand we still got these made in three hours.
We used the Tim Holtz clock die and the jumbo and normal tattered florals dies too.
The Martha Stewart punched butterflies were laid over a stack of three white butterflies stuck together to give added dimension.
The cluster of embellishments at the bottom really makes a statement….
… and the butterflies flutter up the canvas to create some height.

And these are what my lovely ladies created – I was so proud of what they achieved in terms of techniques and final outcomes.


Didn't they do a great job?

Yesterday the workshop focused on the gelli plate and we had a great morning just playing making mono prints, ghost prints and layered prints - such great fun.

Hope your week is going well.
