Last nights canvas class

Putting the gesso on the canvas turned out to be rather a messy job, for some more than others. lol
Although last nights class were a messy lot they were all very camera shy! So while the cleaning up was going on I managed to take this picture.

After all the cleaning up was done and the canvases had been put to one side to dry we set about making our tiles. The tiles we are using are a mixture of stampboard, greyboard and fragments. Alcohol ink was used to colour the stampboard and fragments followed by stamping. The greyboard tiles were painted with dabbers and then stamped these will then be triple embossed. We only have a two hour class on a Wednesday evening so the canvas is being made over two weeks. We do try and fit a lot into our craft evening and we certainly cover a lot of new techniques.
