My first workshop this year at Country View Crafts

I had a fabulous workshop at Country View Crafts last weekend teaching techniques and sharing tips with a fabulous group of people who attended. This was the project - a shadowbox filled with textures, images and ideas.

I enjoyed putting this together as well as teaching the process steps and taking centre stage are two od the Tim Holtz Cottontail die cuts, created in a mixed media style.

Participants also put together a collage layer for a rusted frame to sit over using ephemera and papers ....

.... and I demonstrated quick and easy way to add watercolouring using decoart media fluid acrylic paints.

I love the entomology bugs which come as stamps and dies and these are fabulous for adding interest with the layers ......

.... including one hiding in the wildflower foliage.

The crackle background worked perfectly using a stencil with the decoart media crackle paste and then layers of watery acrylic paint washes.

I have a post over on the CVC project blog today that also shares these photos and also a video of the projects made on the day.

Thanks for stopping by.
