Melt Art

What a great afternoon out  I  had yesterday with  Avril of Mrs B's Crafting Addiction.  
We were lucky to get a place on one of Hels Sheridan's. Melt Art Workshops at 
 Crafty Corner in South Sheilds. 
This is  the Canvas I made,  all the techniques involved the Melt Pot.
Melted wax, Utee,  ultra thick embossing powder, paints etc, I did not need any invitation to get paint all over my hands, a common trait of mine. I was lovely to be among like minded folk and have time to play. Hels guided us through every step and the time just flew around the clock.
I don't think any of us wanted the three hour  session to end, and yes you can guess it went over time.

Thank you for stopping by, I do so appreciate the comments you leave.


  1. Fabulous day!
    Love the addition of the bird to the canvas, just he perfect embellishment.
