End of a fabulous workshop

Well the most fabulous workshop ever ended yesterday, Timeworn Techniques by Andy Skinner. I had so much fun getting messy and inky and painterly and playing. We had the option to enter a piece by the finish date into a competition with the chance of winning some prizes, here is my piece. I will let you know if I win!

The theme over at Simon says stamp and show is paint it up, since this is all paint I am entering it into this challenge too!

I took some Christmas tree baubles and then used the techniques and created this little steampunk hot air balloon and dirigible army. These will be going on my Christmas tree this year and every year! Might make more in different colours too!

I love these.....saw them on Andy's blog this morning. It took some detective work (I couldn't find a link, unless I just missed it) but I googled 'andy skinner timwork challenge' and found you. I love, love these pieces. How clever!
Thanks for sharing. Best, Laura

Eegads, Clare- not heard of Michael DeMeng?!? oh no.... You must fly to the U.S. and take a class with him - he's offering several September and October. Barring that, please run over to his blog http://michaeldemeng.blogspot.com/

and check out his post on July 22- he alters an ornament! Also, if you scroll up, you will see a video under his post "Afraid of String?"- he's talking about the class I'm taking in October. ok, sorry for the long comment! take care.

You will love it! He's one of the best instructors I've ever met. And one of the most talented artists. And he's just recently married and SHE is fab also. Enjoy the class and let me know what you think!
