Grunge paper workshop

OH I got so inky yesterday, and more today finishing off my project. But back to yesterday.


Another workshop at Pickleberry Papercrafts with the lovely Jennie. This one was grunge paper and we spent the day creating this DSCF9615

We started by preparing the frame with paint and stamps and some thick medium that I can’t remember the name of. We stamped a wet stamp into that which gave the texture, then painted and sprayed. then we started on the flowers. Roses first in different sizes and finished then we moved onto die cuts and metal. I brought mine home in pieces and finished it today. I had decided I wanted something other than a flower in the centre and found a large key in my stash which I inked and distress stickled. I also made one more flower (bottom right) using a stamp I have and distress inks. It has also been approved for hanging on the wall. YAY.


Next workshop is at the end of July and is a jewellery day. Looking forward to that.
