Desk Tidy class at The Craft Barn

Hi there everyone
Today I taught a lovely class at The Craft Barn. Using a set of 3 nesting boxes we spent the day sticking, painting stamping and texturising to create a desk tidy out of them.

We used fresco paints to colour, created aged metal finish from silver card. made roses and other flowers and butterflies. The images are all Tim Holtz and the end result is a great storage unit for your creative space!

So. All great stuff.
I hope you all had a good and creative weekend too!

Thoroughly enjoyed Sunday's workshop. Great project. Finished off at home but ended up repainting base as the green didn't work with my stamped bits !
