I was lucky enough to attend a workshop with Barbara on Thursday 21st June 2012.
It was a wonderful day filled with enjoyment, laughter and some great instruction from Barbara and Annette. We strated with some pattern-buildong using one of Barbara’s versatile corner stamps and themoved on to our first piece of work.
This was a flock of sheep and the Twiggy Frame. First of all we made our masks for our sheep and then we stamped and embossed the twiggy frame with black EP and then used the Versamrk pen to go over the twiggy part. We then stamped and masked our flock of sheep before brayering over the whole piece of card to make sky and the landscape . (Barbara makes this look sooooeasy on the TV but it takes a bit of practise) The versamark on the twigs resisited the ink to leave them white. We covered the sheep and the snowy bit with paper and spritzed the sky with water and blotted it with copy paper- this gave us a snowy effect.Before removing our sheep masks we added some colour around their legs to ground them.
After removing the masks we were left with a flock of white sheep in a snowy landscape. Not perfect but I like it.
