WOYWW 93 or what have you been up to!

I am late posting as I went on my painting course today with my mate. What a laugh that was watching the locals covering everything in site with glitter paint!!!!

So this is what we did. The first one we frosted glass then when dry we added glitter glue and gold  balls! not sure when that technique will be used again! the next was done on mirror glass using a stencil and crystal gel.  Again note the use of the glitter glue pen! Then the last one was one half done with decoupage and the other half with crackle glaze, it was like being in the 80s again. We did come away with a nice apron and the whole thing cost nothing so all in all it was a good days work.
If you want to see any other desks that are probably a lot more interesting than mine pop over and see Julia HERE and join in the fun.

Thanks for reading,

sorry to do this - i don't have your email address. But hey, freezer paper is basically worthless for packaging food up for the freezer, but excellent for art. You can do LOts with it - include iron fabric to it so that you can run the fabric through your printer.
Freezer paper should be in the grocers section where the foil, plastic wrap, parchment paper, etc is.
You'll love it.
