Work shop

was so excited! I finally got to a work shop with Jo Firth Young at a lovely craft shop in Marks Tey called Birds in the Barn.    

I love this shop the staff are always so helpful and friendly. There is always an abundance of stock and a variety of samples throughout the store. They also run a loyalty card which great, to add to your stash when it hasn't cost you a penny.

Anyway to the workshop. Jo's project was a triptych using her fabulous stamps. First we painted the triptych in a dark neutral colour. Once dry Jo showed us how to apply crackle glaze. We did this to the top of the project and a little down the sides. This left us some space to stamp without the cracks.

We then painted it all with nougat fresco from Paper Artsy and watched the cracks appear as it dried. Next we stamped the flowers and finished off following Jo's great demonstrations.

Colours used all from Paper Artsy: fresco acrylics  back ground - nougat,  grass - tinned peas and hey Pesto flowers claret and inky squid
And here it is 

Thanks for looking Dxxx
