Hi folks, today I've been spending the day at LB Crafts attending a class run by Linda Brown. We made a fabulous canvas using metal, alcohol inks, die cuts and messed about with paint. I was really pleased to see Chris from the Stamp Hut there as I know her, and had thought that I wouldn't know anyone at the class today. We sat together, and Chris helped me with some tips on metal working, which were greatly appreciated, as I have very little experience in that medium.
After a bit of a natter, we got started, and Linda demoed applying the paint to the canvas, and got us to choose our paint colours. All was going well, until I managed to spill the water pot over my canvas, my lap, and into my bag, (soggy sandwich!), but the heat gun sorted my canvas out, and my sandwich was fairly robust! I learnt how to remove colour from metal using alcohol inks today, see, I told you I hadn't used metal much, and loved the effect. We used material stuck to card to create leaves and flowers, and embossed our metal pieces using Sizzix folders and TSS tools.
