We had a wonderful time, loads of mess, chat and tea/coffee (oh and don't forget the biscuits and scrummy cakes provided by Evelyn.) and EVERYONE went away with a completed canvas.
These are the two I did as examples
The first one was the more challenging of the two and I thought only a few would have a go but no, everyone wanted to do this one except my mum
who chose this one
which is all about creating a background.
As with anything, these can still be added to but I called a halt as I didn't want to frighten everyone off lol. (that's for another class).
There were two things that everyone found difficult. The first was remembering that ANYTHING GOES and it doesn't have to be symmetrical or pretty when you are preparing the canvas. Scrapbookers found this really hard.
The second was ignoring colour when placing the embellishments. It wasn't until everything was eventually painted white that they all understood the process and how it works.
I think everyone had a good time. Evelyn was one of the only people who added her photo on the day so here is her finished piece.
