Yours Artfully Class

My intention was to write this post on Monday, but you know what they say about the best laid plans…..

I had a wonderful time at Lin’s Framed Triptych class at the Bead Scene Studio in Pottersbury, (near Milton Keynes), on Sunday.  It was a project I wanted to attempt the moment I saw Lin’s frame at the Craft Barn Extravaganza Day, back in July.

The Bead Scene is a lovely venue, surrounded by countryside & with lots of chickens & cockerels running around.  This one was especially vocal.

The class was a perfect opportunity to play with the Fresco Finish paints by PaperArtsy.  They are wonderful; a great selection of colours, some opaque, some translucent & they blend together beautifully.

I tried to create a stonewashed effect.  I loved that you can add layers of the FF paint the effect you want.

Lots of stamping & embossing, then it was time to add the embellishments & focal image – which is THIS stamp.

We used Fresco Finish paints to give the metal embellishments a rusty effect & then added tiny amounts of Treasure Gold.  I completely LOVED doing this.  I’ve added some of my own pieces & used the same techniques & it is VERY cool when you see the result.  By the way, Treasure Gold comes in fifteen gorgeous colours & once you have one, you’ll want them all.

And here is my finished frame.  I am very proud of it.

A big thank you to Lin for such a great class & for her excellent chauffeuring duties as well.

Thanks as well to Stephanie for her warm welcome & keeping us supplied with tea & coffee.

Thanks for looking, until next time,

Love & light.
