Fantasy Prisme

Well, I took my Pebeo Fantasy Prisme class up at the Craft Barn yesterday and it was great fun.
Didn't start off too well though as I got all the way up there only to find I'd left my bag with money, phone. camera, lunch and general junk sitting on the chair at home. Thank goodness I'd got all the class stuff!
As it was I had to borrow some money for lunch - thanks Kati - and Liz very kindly took photos of all the artwork for me.
There were 10 ladies in the class and we had a good time trying out various colours of this paint and then oohing and aahing over the effects - if you haven't tried it, you should have a go. Every time there was something different, even if exactly the same colours were used.
We tried out dropping and blobbing paint onto mount board to see the different effects:

 We also tried it out on black card - really effective:

Then we started on the sort of book project. I'd brought a whole load of Crafty Individuals stamps with me, not just the ones I used, and everyone chose their own colour palette. They made some really good stuff:

Then it was onto the Tando square jewellery hangings - there wasn't time to finish these as you have to allow for drying time, but people added different inclusions - beadazzles, accent beads, glass beads etc.   And lastly they had two pendants to fill with paint.

As you can see, we did a lot!
So, just to say 'thank you' to all of you at the class for making it so enjoyable, to Liz for taking these pics for me and to Gabby for the cake which we all enjoyed!

Thanks for looking!


PS I hope I got pics of everyone's work - apologies to the 2 ladies who had to leave slightly early as I think we missed yours.
