Canvas workshop

A few weeks ago I went to my regular Clarity workshop - but this time Debbie was going to be demonstrating how to do a mixed media canvas.

I was a little nervous as I have never done anything quite as detailed as this before. I needn't have worried as Debbie had given us all a little bag with everything we would need to make our creation and her tuition ensured that I was able to make this beautiful piece pictured above. I learnt so much from her that day.

It is a lot more glittery in real life but I've not been able to catch that.

I haven't been able to share the canvas before now as there were other workshops that Debbie was going to do this at and we didn't want to spoil it for them. I have been so excited to show what I achieved and you will see going forward this has now inspired my other work - look out for the influence!

Big thanks to Debbie for what was a wonderful day and also for making all of us one of these little plaques which has pride of place in my living room.

An absolutely stunning canvas Lynn. What beautiful colours! I'm glad you had so much fun. The plaque from Deby is lovely and I'm sure you'll enjoy owning it. I now wait to see what else you have to share with us. Barbxx

That is so kind of you Lynn and I am glad you enjoyed the day ... I had such a good time (despite the nerves!!!!) and never need much of an excuse to share what I LOVE to do. Your finished piece was wonderful and I have also yet got to figure out how to photograph them to show them at their best - the shimmer and sparkle never seems to show up! The little plaques are just a representation of what I enjoy doing most so were a pleasure to make for everyone ... like I said, never need much of an excuse to get down & inky! Love to you, Debbie xXx
