Hello my crafting friends, cant believe its been another week and more since I posted, where does the time go!

A few weeks ago I went to one of Sheena Douglas workshops and had such a fabulous time so I wanted to show you the canvas I made on the day.

So this is it! We first applied Bindex to our canvas over the top of some kitchen towel to add texture, we added buttons, string and beads then left to dry.  Once dry we painted over the top with Black Gesso and let that dry.

We had the flowers and leaves already die cut but painted them with Pebeo Dyna Iridescent paints and added some minol relief glue dots in the middle to add foils once dry. we also painted some of the paints over the board with a dry brush.

We rubbed some Silver gilding wax over the string, buttons etc then added the flowers where we wanted them to go. Now most people did all this at the workshop but mine was not dry in time  to do this (because I added too much bindex lol!) so I finished it off at home and added a butterfly that I had painted in the same colours.

Its a nice little simple piece that looks very effective because of the paints used and I was quite pleased with the end result.

Now in Sheena's group we are starting inspirational posts to show how all her different stamps  can be put together to make a card, painting whatever you would like, we have a rota set up so every Monday & Thursday one of us will post on the Inkettes page (Facebook) and this will link back to our blogs, my turn is this Thursday so I will show you a card I made for a work colleague using various stamps of Sheenas. We are all very excited about this so if you are a Sheena fan then come and join the Inkettes page and see all the wonderful work by the design team.

Until then thank you for looking, Jacquie xxx
