MIxology Make and Take

 I taught a Make and Take project at the last Ministry of Mixology which was in Milton Keynes in April.

I had made some stencil covers for the new Andy Skinner set of stencils and thought that this gorgeous little rounded tag would create a great little journal/book. So I used several creating a new technique on each one.


I called these -

Dip, drip and dry. 

 Distressed gesso layer

Water distressed layers

There were two others that people could do themselves on the open table if they wanted to.
These are in the sample book I made for all five of the techniques.

I then added a little decorative collage to each one using papers and Di's chipboards ...

.. and some words I create on h PC.

I also use some of Andy'ssnew stencils.

I wanted to show that these backgrounds can be used for grungy or pretty projects, it's just the colours that you use that will make the difference.

I hope you like my samples.

Ooh, so gorgeous... all those blues and greens with added rust and grunge! And the rusted number plate cover is brilliant. Love your colours and techniques - wish I could have come to play.
