Maya road chipboard set. I stuck the canvas to the tag, and stamped the Twirly bird onto the tag and then stuck the branch on so it just covered the feet of the bird. To make the leaves I cut out leaf shapes from the canvas, painted them green and added the veins with the finest of the Claudine Brushes. ( these are fab and can stay in water as long as you like!) Finally I stuck them randomly on the branch, stamped Nature is Art from the Nature is Art set at the top of the tag. (I just inked the part of the stamp I wanted). Finally a little scattered Straw distress stickles finished off the bird with peeled paint distress stickles for highlights.

These are just a few of the techniques taught, and I promise I will teach you some of them.

I shall pick some of the techniques to show you later, but for now it suddenly seems that jet lag has kicked in, and a little nap seems in order! I should be so lucky! Still it is Easter weekend, so I do hope you are having a relaxing time this weekend. More tomorrow....

I met so many lovely people,(the class photo is above, and I am the one hiding 2nd row up! ) and we worked incredibly hard for 3 days, learning new techniques and getting to play with almost all of Ranger's products. Tim Holtz, Suze Weinberg and Claudine Hellmuth showed and taught us how to use their products. I already have a good number of Ranger products in the store, but will be getting Claudine paints and canvas too. They are winging their way to me as I type! Yah!
I learnt so many new techniques, and I will be working my round to showing you them on the blog, and on the website.

I found this mirror in one of my local "stash" shops, and it has taken me a little while to alter it due to the fact that I crackle painted the whole mirror in Bronze crackle paint by Ranger, and then added faces to the actual mirror with Stazon balck ink. I then added pearls around the outside with Glossy Accents. These kept slipping off, so it took me a little while longer than I anticipated! All the elements are available in the shop.
Have a go at the challenge, and please post when you have done it.
