I am sharing the Make and take I taught at Ministry of Mixology last weekend over on the Tando blog
I used a special paper over gesso which gives a lovely translucent look to create the background and then used media acrylics for the colouring up before I stamped and used a stencil with black modeling paste.
I also used some tissue tape and the gorgeous stars Di cut specially for me.
As always Mixology was an amazing weekend with 70 fabulous crafters and two amazing tutors. It really is the place to be when these events are happening.
If you want to know the paper I used for the background then please pop over to the Tando blog to find out.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week and I hope you find some creative time for yourself.

We used media boards that Di cuts specially for me - they are 12 1/2 x 18 cms and a lovely size to work on.
I had 10 lovely ladies join me and we sat and used ordinary kitchen greaseproof paper for the background.
Because it repels water when spritzed it pools and if you then add tiny amounts of the media fluid acrylics it looks brilliantly distressed.
With some stamping using Andy Skinner Tech Trauma stamps and one of his stencils with decoart black modeling paste plus some tissue tape the background started to come alive.
We finished by painting some fabulous stars that Di also cut especially for this project although I believe she will be adding some to the shop, so keep your eyes peeled.
