More Workshop Makes

I'm a little late posting these, but last Saturday saw me up early and off around the M25 to Kent again to another of Eileen's super workshops. This time canvases were on the agenda for the day. We started with the small one at the bottom, this one involved a lot of acrylic paint, some stamps and a little paste. The second (which I will admit to this one being my favourite) larger canvas at the top was made using the bleeding tissue technique. I had never tried this before and will admit I came home and ordered some of this tissue right away. As well as the tissue we used a little white acrylic paint, some stamps and the gorgeous large Daisy stencil by Designs by Georgina with black Archival ink.

The top canvas has been mounted onto some white mount board, I still have to mount the bottom one.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Oh you lucky girl . . . Eileen's workshops are always such fun and you always come away with something different that pleases you. Love both canvases, but agree the top one is my fave.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Lucky you going to Eileen's workshop. I really like both canvasses very much but the top one is also my favourite. I think the bleeding tissue technique is great fun and have used the pieces a second time too for a more pastel background. I like the way you have stencilled and used paste round the edge too. A super idea. Have lots of fun when it arrives. Barbxx
