Another workshop

Jennie form The Artistic Stamper took another workshops at Pickleberry Papercrafts yesterday and it has to be my favourite so far. We made this and I am so pleased with it.DSCF9579It started with a blank wooden framed mirror, we stuck, inked and  sprayed the frame then made all the embellishments. We played with UTEE, transferred from a picture on paper to canvas, die cut metal, painted, stamped, used alcohol inks, distress inks and so many more things. I had so much fun! It was also lovely to catch up with familiar faces and old friends.


The only drawback – wait for it – taking the photo to post here. I have taken about 10 till I got it right. To start with the mirror was so smeared. If you ever want to see if a mirror is clean – take a photo – every little mark shows up. I cleaned, polished and buffed till I got that right. Then I couldn’t find the right light to give the best colours, well the most like it really looks. Daylight seemed to make it just too light. Still I got there in the end. Now I am looking forward to the next one.


I nearly forgot – even Chris likes it and I will be putting it on display. Now maybe that is the incentive to finally finish the UTEE canvas and get that on display as well.
