Saturday saw Jo and I attending another workshop, this time run by Lynn Robinson-Hunter and called 'Canvas Creations'. All we knew was that it was on canvas (suppose the name gave it away LOL!) and that we were gonna be working in a neutral palette, a first for both me and Jo. We're the ones that are practically guaranteed to have the brightest colours of any workshop which are usually purple and green for Jo and orange for me!!
I drove on Saturday as I felt fine. We met the other two participants, Joan and Karen. Joan's daughter Rachel was ill and lying down in the car outside. Bless her she finally made it into the workshop for about the last hour or so, but she got so much done!!
There were 8" x 8" deep frame canvasses waiting for us on the table with some dictionary paper and a Tim Holtz Ornate Plate. Lynn then began to tell us of the colours we could use which she had totally restricted to the neutral palette and that we had to try and build texture on the frame.
I began by using one of the Tattered Angels Masks on the top left hand corner of the canvas and pushed Golden Fibre Paste through it with my finger - YUK!!!! I hate having anything gooey on my fingers. Lynn had gone in search of palette knives, but I just thought 'be brave' and off I went in with my finger. I was still picking bits out of my nails on Sunday even though I'd washed my hands thoroughly!!!
