School's out!! ...... for some

Happy Friday folks ......

So looking forward to the weekend ...... and it all starts right now!!!
It's going to be a busy one again though ........ we've got a BBQ bash tomorrow evening, then a day out at the Wildlife Park on Sunday, courtesy of hubby's works.  Dinner and a few drinks out this evening ........ and I've got to be ready for a workshop tomorrow.
And on top of all that it's the last day of school today ..... I'd better make the most of this weekend, I'll probably be grounded for the next six weeks on Grandma duty ..... lets hope the nice weather holds.

Yes, it's workshop time again.  I've got a lovely bunch of ladies coming round tomorrow to have some fun using Brushos ...... those fabulous little pots of magic.
I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about ...... pigment powders/crystals, that when mixed with water and other mediums, can create some amazing effects.  Similar products are Ken Oliver Color Bursts (although I don't think I can call them that anymore ..... I think they're just Bursts now!) and the brand new Infusions from PaperArtsy  .... same thing, pigment powders but with added Walnut Stain in them ...... these are gorgeous!!

We're going to be trying out different ways of using Brushos ..... making backgrounds, using them to paint with, mixing them with mica powders and gels to get a different look .... it's going to be fun.
Here's a few sneak peeks at some of the designs I've come up with as a little inspiration to get them started .....

Great for adding background colour.

Perfect for painting with ......... even on black card.

And great your Christmas cards  too ......

Well .... I suppose I'd better go and make sure everything is ready seeing as I'm out this evening.

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a fantastic weekend.
The sun is making it's first appearance of the day .... you never know we may be able to dine al fresco this evening

Cheerio until next time
