If you fancy a day creating a collage to be proud of, then why not join me to learn some of the techniques I use to create amazing texture. This elegant project will be built upon a canvas board using lots of my favourite products. We will be using Fresco Finish paint and Crackle Glaze to create a shabby centrepiece which will feature some of the gorgeous images from the Lynne Perrella range of stamps from PaperArtsy. As usual, you will of course be able to select your own colour palette and images to create a beautiful and elegant piece of art that you will be proud to display in your home.
