John Glossop Workshop....

Well good morning all!!

Congratulations once again to Gillian (Lee) for winning last weeks Give away - I am hoping to have another give away soon so watch this space :-)

Apologies again for my absence from here the last couple of weeks! Terrible aren't i
I have been super busy work wise and quite simply ran out of hours in the day! It has been a fab time though.

So I am having a couple of hours this morning scheduling up several posts for the next week or so :-)

As those of you that follow me on FB  know i went on a workshop with John Glossop last week and this is what we created.....

The old Ikea mirrors got an outing with this and were turned into this lovely textured frame.
Lots of paper, lots of acrylic paint and then the meltpot came out and beeswax was used for the 3d texture and fixing the tissue papers. Finishing touches included Mica and Gilding wax.

The large butterfly is from Tim Holtz and was mounted on to the weaved card background that replaced the usual mirror and then the frame was finished off with stamping and these (dreaded lol!) flowers- those that know me do know I have a bad track record and short fuse making these flowers lol - they always seem to cause me trauma of one sort or another lolol!!

It was a great class and I thoroughly recommend catching one of John's classes/demo days!

I hope you have enjoyed today's offering - I would love to know what you think!

Have a good day everyone!

Crafty cheers for now
