Mixed Media Fest

Just got back from a fun weekend teaching alongside Michelle Webb and Kate Crane at Mixed Media Fest, held at It's Crafting Time in Cambridge.

I taught on both days and Kate and Michelle joined us on Sunday to deliver their workshops - a canvas and art journal spread respectively. All the classes were packed with techniques - using DecoArt products, of course!

On Saturday I taught an 8" x 8" MDF board using my new Tando Industrial Elements kit and tons of Media products.
On Sunday we used a similar selection of goodies to make a Secret Book Box.

I met loads of lovely people and it was especially good to meet some of my colleagues on the DecoArt Helping Artist programme. I think everyone had a good weekend - we had some fun giveaways and we certainly had a few laughs (mostly at the expense of my nemesis Tracy Weinzapfel)! I think I converted a few people to DecoArt too!!!

Next stop Coventry for the Ministry of Mixology!
