On Saturday I went to a Paint Fusion workshop with the lovely Sheena Douglass. It was a lovely day, filled with laughter, coffee, messy fingers and cake!
I'm so pleased with the results as I never thought I would be able to produce projects that look this good :)
My first project was a tag - I learnt how to make the crackle background and age it with distress inks ...
... and then it was on to the stamping and painting! I finished off the tag by embossing each of the sides with Sheena's Wow powder - it really is extremely sparkly!
Next, I made a topper using an embossed bouquet stamp. I learnt how to build up the background colours and how to paint the leaves and make the pretty pastel flowers:
After lunch, I decorated a piece of pre-crackled mountboard with the Sheena's Daisy stamp. This can now be used as a card topper or even a fridge magnet!
My final project was to decorate a candle. I didn't even know you could stamp straight onto candles!
I loved the textured look of the paint on the candle:
This will make a fabulous Christmas/birthday present ... I will definitely be decorating more candles - in fact, I just bought some today!!
Have a lovely weekend and I hope the sun shines for you :)
