Doodling Day

The March workshop was a mix of several techniques.  We made faux washi tape using surgical paper tape. Stamped a collage of images onto sheets of tissue. It was also to introduce a way of looking at everyday items with a view to using them for art and craft.  A thick foam kneeling pad cut up proved handy to heat and mould, when inked could be stamped to produce all types of patterns.  Even a pair of flip flops cut up became a great texture stamp.

Several open style images were provided along with fine tip pens to doodle within and add more detail to each of the images and colour using Copic pens.  Some were made into cards as above.

A lot of these techniques can be incorporated into the April project when we will tackle making and decorating a Journal.

Using sheets of wood veneer, we stamped and lightly coloured with pearlescent paints as below.

This is the hall where we have fun at the workshops, all set up and ready for everyone to arrive.

More next time!
