The 5 fold screen workshop went like a dream today and a good time was had by all. The ladies were the quietest class I think I have ever taught , far too engrossed in their work for chit chat. lol. I think they were panicking a bit about finishing it as it did have a lot of detail in it!!
As usual some followed my example to the letter whilst others just did their own thing. I always say its up to you which approach you take as it is your project after all.
In one of my redundant moments I started sorting through one of the cubby holes near one of my many work areas. I came across lots of sample squares. These are all made when I am demonstrating techniques and those I don't use to decorate my many mirrors and journal covers are thrown into bags ready to use another day. Well today was that other day. I thought I would make a new board for the studio wall. So I faux mosaiced them onto a large piece of mount board ready to hang. I am really pleased with it and think it will look stunning hanging on the wall. Just goes to show what you can make with leftover odds and sods, doesn't it?
