My Workshop Samples from Saturday

Another great day at Eileen's Workshop
Here are my makes from Eileen's Workshop on Saturday
Canvas with a few techniques. Heavy Gesso to coat base, tissue, more Gesso or similar glue medium. When dry, Gesso
again. Used acrylics paints to add colour detail. When dry Stencil with a texture paste medium or similar.
Embellishments of choice. This time I used a HoneyDoo Stamp and coloured with Versacolour and Wink of Stella Pens and cut out. May gloss them too. My background stencil was the  Ginko leaf  by Designs by Ryn!/Gingko-Stencil/p/48145946/category=12538212
Second piece is a card. I used a texture paste fairly thinly on the back ground. Left to dry. Distress inks to add colour and when dry tamped image - a Penny Black Stamp. I like the variance in colour shading where the paste absorbs the ink. Used a metallic pen on the "dot" leaves. Inked a narrow border round card before using a silver pen round the border and to add a few dots for interest again with the silver pen. Matt and layering to finish
A card again. "flicked" a masking fluid with a brush. Left to dry. Made mask for moon and positioned before using Distress Inks. Removed masked and coloured moon. When ink was dry Stamped image - a HoneyDoo Stamp and coloured. Splattered water drops to lift some of the ink and when dry removed the artist mask to reveal "white". Used a gold pen to highlight edges.
What a great day and pleased with my results too!!
