Mists & Masks - A Wrap!!

Thank you to all our lovely ladies who attended our Mists & Masks Workshop back in May.  Please forgive our 'tardiness' and not updating our Blog sooner - but as you know Lizzie has been in recovery and we are working at a different pace (not our usual frenetic one).

Well back to business.....

We had such a fun time with all the new sprays, inks and masks on the market.

At this Workshop we introduced a techniques journal concept and all our workshop lovelies had so much fun playing with all the techniques on their pages....

The picture above is the gorgeous dust cover done by Cassie McCumstie (DT Member) for her techniques journal - gotta love us a rainbow using Dylusion Ink Sprays and some well chosen masks all on art canvas.

While the fab cover to the right is by the talented Natalie Bright (DT Member).  Natalie was into re- purposing and loved using her inked and misted scraps to create this gorgeous banner for her technique journal ... how good does this look!!!

We all had fun playing with techniques ready for our Workshop - here are some samples of our team's technique albums.

Some quick flowers - mists and doodling by the lovely Lisa Greedy

Masking with Gesso and playing with misting our favourite embellishment - doilies - Noice!!!

Lisa Greedy got down and misting with Mr Huey's and masking using mod podge

Masking and stamping - laying down that mask and using all the left over ink - our Lizzie likes to economise and hates to see all that lovely ink go to waste....

Lisa has had a 'love affair' with Dylusion Ink Sprays for sometime and, this beautiful tag is a lovely sample of ghosting techniques, stamping and dying embellishments.

Layout Gallery

Layouts by our lovely team were on display at the Workshop, showing how to take the techniques we had been exploring and translate them to a layout ... here is our sample gallery.
