Saturday Fun

Saturday afternoon out  was spent in the company of crafting friends Avril  and Diane. 
 At a Hels Sheridan workshop held at  Crafty Corner  in South Shields.
This  is  7 x 5 inch  box canvas that I made.
Lots of inkiness, making flowers  and playing with hot bees wax in the melt pots.
Mind you I was covered in the black paint before we started, having picked up a well soaked pad left from the mornings workshop.
So briefly, a canvas base, pieces of patterned and plain papers, distress with ink.
Random stamping and a word quote, there was so much choice, I went for a personal favorite. 
 Covered  all over with bees wax before adding the flower etc, which were also covered with wax.
Although we had the same ingredients, it was amazing that all the finished results were so different.

I am going to link this with Country View Crafts 
who have an Anything goes theme to celebrate their blogaversary
