After a little bit of a panic not being able to find the car keys, but then finding them in the safe place I'd chosen to put them, we wandered back over the bridge.
This time I remembered to take a few photos.
It's a lovely setting and there were lots of people taking their dogs for a walk on the green by the river.
Back in the classroom. Today we were a bigger group of 15 as opposed to seven yesterday. The same seven, plus eight new people.
So here we are, all at the front again watching Anna demoing the first steps of the smaller than yesterday canvas.
We used tissue paper again to cover the canvas, a different pattern to yesterdays.
Everyone working away and having fun.
I added some textures to the canvas, including stencilling with 3d transparent gel, masking tape and some computer bits.
Next I started to build up the composition. Thanks Jules for the Tim Holtz paper doll from the Halloween set!
I took this as nothing was stuck down, so I had to take it all off and rebuild it.
I chose to use purple shades of mica powders to colour the elements. Mixed them with fluid acrylic and sprayed with water to make them flow and drip.
Placed it on the shelf behind me to take the photo.
And finally added my wicked lady, a spider and some splatters.
Close ups of the canvas.
This is the one that Janet made.
Close ups of the lovely colours and textures.
Jules and Vicki working on their canvases.

After this class, we went out to get some lunch and came back ready for the last session of the weekend.
