We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Colour in the sunshine

Had a fabulous day on Monday at the Craft Barn, taking part in a workshop with Lin Brown.  The Craft Barn had their extravaganza at the weekend, which I didn't manage to get to, but the marquees remained up, and this workshop was held in one of them.

Such a beautiful day, with a gentle breeze blowing through, and the light was fantastic in the marquee - just like crafting in the garden!

We created a panel using Fresco Finish paints - as you know these are my favourite paints, as I've probably mentioned countless times before!  The panel is covered in some Tim Holtz tissue paper, before painting the background.  We used Lin's latest stamps, and paint stamped onto black card, which meant lots of cutting out, but these stamps are very easy to cut out.  There are also a few metal dies available that go with some of the stamps. All the cutouts were arranged on the panel, and in-filled with  stamped words; finishing off with some little embellishments.

Here is my panel, and I love how colourful it is.

A really relaxing and fun day.  Of course I had to buy a few things in the shop ......
