Eileen's Class

Good morning,
Yay it is Friday, the best day of the week!  Even though I have to work on Saturday morning this week, I'm still glad it's Friday.

Last Saturday I attended Eileen Goodwin's class in Rochester with three of my crafty friends.  What a fabulous time we had.

We used the brilliant brusho paints and clingfilm technique. I LOVED the way this turned out, all I could see in the pattern was the tree trunk with the light shining through, perfect place for the fairy to be hanging out!
Eileen showed us how to paint using the brusho's and create a shadow around our image

This card was using just a sprinkling of lemon and black brusho paint with a wee spray of water.  We were then supposed to stamp an image over the paint but once again all I could see was a tree!  I couldn't go beyond that.  I just loved the tree and didn't want to spoil it, so I just mounted on black card and left!!!
This class was so very inspirational and has given me the confidence to play some more with my brusho's.

Thanks for stopping by today
Take care

  1. You have a lovely delicate touch with your Brusho's Jan. I love everything you've shown on this blog post, but my fave is the poppy card - cuz you did it PROPERLY!!!!!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

    1. Thank you Sarn. I must admit that I was a little disappointed that none of my efforts managed to get on to Eileen's gallery :(. I was so very pleased with them all and had a fab time at the class. I am looking forward to having a play on Saturday after work xxx

  2. I love the fairy one and yes I could see a tree in the last picture too. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. I am so loving each one of these. Each one is such a different look, but you've got some brilliant color on each one, and the atmosphere of each of the cards is so completely different. Love the look of the brusho (haven't been able to find a set yet...everyone is OOS in the places I've checked). Good for you at enjoying a fun class and producing such stunning results. TFS

  4. It was a great day wasn't it, and your creations turned out SO beautifully. X
