Something New....

... for me .... Canvas Work. Last Tuesday I went to a canvas workshop. I've had a slight phobia of working on canvas... i don't know why! lol so I thought this would be the ideal opportunity to embrace just a little canvas! It was at my local craft stall... Katz & Co...

Firstly, we made lots of shaving foam backgrounds... love this technique for background making. And here's the two canvas's I made whilst doing the workshop. photo's aren't as bright as the real thing.



A week before I took a brayering workshop at Katz & Co... it was fun but I struggled to get to grips with a brayer. It was hard work and I nearly had to stamp my feet in frustration! lol


Both classes were super fun and I enjoyed meeting other like-minded people. And I have a lot of new backgrounds to play with as well! Happy days!
