Today I have been playing with Acrylic paint and the effects you can create with it. Once dry I will sew into it.
We started with Lesley talking to us about health and safety regarding the use of needles and disposal of them. We chose our colours as we had tea and cake. then the work began. With Lesley showing us step by step we are all happy with the results. lovely fairies for our homes.
Another workshop will be organised soon for those of you who missed it.
The first Bouquet is made from Silk Peony flowers with new vintage looking brooches wired into the centres. Then two ropes of vintage pearls threaded through the flowers with a froth of organza to finish off. Jewelled headed pins holding the ribbon down the stems.
The second is made from velvet roses and a vintage black and metal necklace reassembled into individual pieces wired in between the flowers. Black beads threaded through. Black organza to finish off and jewelled headed pins to hold the ribbon down the stems.

Seventeen ladies of the Flying Geese Quilt Group of Snettisham enjoyed a day of experimenting with Scolabrush.
The morning started with some raised eyebrows when I explained that we would be working on paper initially to get used to the products. New sketchbooks were given out and taken apart ready to start working onto the pages. A tentative start grew into exclamations of wonder as they used different products for the first time and began to understand how Scolabrush works.After lunch we moved onto fabric and the ladies had the chance to compare the different effects and how the products work very differently on fabric when compared to paper.
