More Pans at Eileen's Workshop

Another super workshop from Eileen Godwin (Eileen's Craft Zone), great to meet up with friends from the previous one and some Clarity friends who travelled quite a way to get there. Now find I need to buy more pans, modelling paste, stencils and a gorgeous Penny Black stamp called Fantasy Tree. Can't find it anywhere at the moment but will keep looking.....

Here are some of the things I made -

The first one makes you shiver just looking at it and seems appropriate at the moment as it's so cold! I used pans to colour and then stencilled with modelling paste which I then sprinkled Glamour Dust on to. Once dry I then stamped around the edges with 2 colours of ink and 'Fantasy Tree' and added some gems.

The one on the right is a simple blending of 2 colours with a Lavinia stamp and a Clarity sentiment. A few gems added just to lift it a bit and finished with a ribbon.

 This is a Lavinia stencil, called Poppy but we all thought it was a fuschia! Either way it is beautiful with the paste and glitter treatment. Then simply matted onto mirri board, added a few gems and mounted on a card - seemples!
More Lavinia stamps to create this lovely scene. Used a moon mask positive and negative to create the background before stamping the images.


And finally a card using Versamark and the resist method plus the dreaded shrink plastic!! Need to remember when using the Versamark to dab the pan pastels so they are absorbed in before you start swirling the colour to blend. As Sue said 'dib dab dob and then swirly whirly' ! Not sure about the shrink plastic, personally feel it's too 'heavy' looking but then I did have to be rescued by Eileen from a near fatality of the butterfly!

Another fab day with some lovely people, thanks to Eileen for her patience and persistence and to  Chris (My Crafty Card Place) for her added assistance and for sharing both her knowledge and her crafty goodies with me! Already looking forward to the next one ! x
