My Mixed Media Mayhem Messy Weekend 2

My Mixed Media Mayhem Messy Weekend 2

Hi All

Recently, I went on a two-day Mixed Media Crafting weekend in Lancaster held by Rowan Tree Crafts in Carnforth, Lancashire. The tutor was Mark Gould from DecoArt.  A big thank you to all who organised this fab weekend, I had a great time I can't wait to go again next year, i'll start saving now!

This year's projects were very different to last years, we were tutored by Kate Crane on the first day creating a lovely journal cover which I still haven't finished, so I will upload it later when it is done.

The second day was with Mark Gould, and we used seven gypsies papers and lots of Deco Art products to produce six panels and the frame you see below, we just chose 3 of the six panels to go in the frame and I have 3 more to create a further project with.  The Seven Gypsies papers were fantastic to use, and so strong in texture and double sided with lovely useable images.

Here are some images of the completed project.

You would never believe those stars were white to start off with

It was amazing, we all started off with the same products, used the same techniques, 
but depending on the colours of paint, panel choices and stamps we used everyone's projects 
were different.

The whole weekend was great fun, I met some lovely ladies, made some great friends, got messy and had a fabulous time, and did a bit of crafty shopping and so it continues! 

I hope to go again next year.

I hope you like them.

Take care
