Hello fellow WOYWWers.
Just a quick post as not much is happening here today.
I went to a Hels Sheridan Melt Pot workshop on Sunday at Crafty Bunch in Telford and this is the canvas we made as our workshop project. It is not yet finished as I am looking for some more embellishments to add.
The canvas is painted with Distress Paints (Mowed Lawn and Bundled Sage). The images were stamped on to tissue (Kleenex type) and then adhered to the canvas with melted beeswax. We then made the embellishments using UTEE. The rose is a mulberry paper rose dipped in clear UTEE and the other bits and pieces you can see were made with metallic UTEE marbled in to the remaining clear UTEE and then either poured in to a memory frame, mould or Texture Tread.
Today I have added additional Peeled Paint harlequin stamping and blended Vintage Photo DI around the edges of the canvas to add some more interest and to tone down the very bright green of the painted surface.
You might notice that I have a new black "craft mat" underneath my traditional brown one - it is a heat proof non-stick oven liner which at £2.99 is much cheaper than a traditional craft mat - I'll let you know how it goes on.
Ria - if you pop by today - I've had a very quick play with my X-cut screw punch and am pleased with it. Cutting holes in felt is now quick, simple. has no fraying and is silent! The punch is easy to use you just press down on the palm sized handle and it twists itself through the material - no wrist twisting necessary. The different sized punch heads are stored in the handle (genius!) - as I say I haven't given it a full work out but it does what I want it to so far! MMx
That's all from me have a happy WOYWW.
A few changes...
