...a few weeks ago I taught my Mixed Media Masterboard class and for a change, I actually got a class sample finished! Oh yesh, normally, class samples get half made and then end up bunged under my desk in a bag with the idea that one day I will finish them... yep, one day! Anyways, I loved the colours I used on this one so much I carried on when I got home and finished off the decorations.
As this is a class sample, I won't go into great detail on how I made it but I will tell you about the colours... aren't they gorgeous? I used a mix of Cosmic Misting Ink Jade Sea and Dirty Martini Dylusions sprays and blended them together with water to get this washy effect.
The flowers were coloured with Ancient Green and Egyptian Blue Cosmic Sprays with a smidge of Black Marble Dylusions to get some metallic effect onto them. The butterflies are coloured with Peacock Feathers DI's and painted with a waterbrush to get the blending on the wings... and the sentiment is one of Tim's original woody stamps I have in my collection.
I have had a marvellous few days! Grim whisked me off to North Yorkshire for a few days R&R = we stayed at the most delightful hotel just outside York called The Sidings. The rooms are all in converted Mark 1 railways coaches... and they are about 30 feet away from the East Coast Mainline... a real "trainman's holiday" - laying in bed of a morning watching high speed trains whizz past the end of the bed... cool! Of course, it would have been very remiss of us not to visit the North Yorkshire Moors Railway... so we did! And yet again, I didn't see Sir Nigel Gresley!!! One of these days I will get to see "her" in steam!
I am back up north again now... sitting here in me hotel room in Preston - I am here for a workshop tomorrow and a demo day on Friday at Inspirations. If you are around on Friday it would be great to see you! I shall away now, time for my bed! Thanks for looking, have a goodly day! TTFN
