On Sunday I attended a full day workshop run by several parchment tutors. I was apprehensive to begin with as I thought I would be out of my depth but I was soon put at ease. My lovely friend Maggie Craner also came along and we sat together. Safety in numbers I reckon. The first project was very intricate and I will have to post a photo of that one later as I have not finished it yet. In the afternoon we were painting on parchment using any water based markers that we had. Now colouring and blending is not my strong point but I learnt an awful lot. I am keen to try the technique again and can carry some of the tips over into my stamping.
Below is my finished project and I am quite pleased with it. Not perfect I know but definitely an improvement for me.
I added a few more flowers to mine and also some gems and a little bit of glitter although that does not show very well on the photo. I wanted to send this to my lovely little great niece who says she loves my glittery cards. Hope she likes it.
When painting on parchment you must be careful not to get too much water on your brush just damp really. The parchment will crinkle otherwise.
Hope you like this pretty little design, this one was designed by Sue Hastwell who taught the afternoon class. I will post my other project as soon as I have finished it.
Thank-you for dropping by . xx
