What an amazing weekend I just had. Artsycrafts Warrington was just the best, not only did Leandra and I have the pleasure of teaching two great projects to some very talented students (I'll share all the info on that next week as I really don't want to give away all the details for the people who will be attending Artsycrafts, Newport Pagnell this coming weekend) we actually got to sit down and join in with one of Lynne Perrella's classes. Yes, I did say Lynne Perrella, the one and only and uber talented Lynne Perrella. Lynne is not only a fantastic teacher, she is a genuinely lovely, lovely lady with a fabulous sense of humour and is an extremely good teacher so how lucky do I feel that I got to take her class.......beyond lucky would be my answer. I thought it would be nice to share some pictures of the triptych that I made.
When I started work on my project, the only thought I had in my head was to step outside my comfort zone and not make it green. I am still in love with green and guess I always will be but I was determined to try and make something in more pastel shades. So I started by mixing a lovely creamy colour with Paperartsy's Snowflake, Vintage Lace, Haystack and a dot of London Night. Followed by Butternut and more London Night. After many many layers, I was not in love with my project, it felt kinda wishy washy and needed a bit of ooomph to it. I came so close to adding green but after a very in depth discussion with Lynne Perrella, I opted for black and I instantly fell in love. Lots of layers went on top of the black too but it just pulled the whole thing together.
