Hi everyone. This week I will be teaching 5 FREE workshops a day at NEC (National Exhibition Centre) Birmingham for Pebeo UK. I’m busy making samples at the moment and here are a few pictures to show you how I’m doing.

I have painted these buttons with Pebeo Fantasy Prisme and Moon paint

The lovely Catherine was my assistant this morning and painted these acrylic fragments for me. We added a few star, hearts and some glitter as well.

I outlined a heart shape with Pebeo Cerne Relief and then filled the inside with Pebeo Fantasy Prisme.

I drew my outline with Pebeo Cerne Relief and filled the heart with Pebeo Prisme in two colours. I hadn’t made too good a job and it leaked out a bit so I went around it again to contain the leak!!

Catherine outlined the heart with Pebeo Cerne Relief and filed it with Pebeo Moon.

Catherine outlined this heart with Pebeo Cerne Relief and filled it with 2 colours of Pebeo Fantasy Moon.

For this little canvas board I scraped the Pebeo Studio Acrylic paint colours across the board with a palette knife, added Pebeo Deco Touch and finished it off with Gold Leaves.

Another little sample using Pebeo Studio Acrylic, Pebeo Deco Touch and some gold and silver leaves.

I love this little sample. I tried to make it look like a fantasy garden. I used Pebeo Studio Acrylic, Pebeo Deco Touch and silver leaves.

I used Pebeo Studio Acrylic with Pebeo Deco Touch and Gold Leaves. I used a palette knife to add some texture and added gold leaves to finish. I rubbed in the Touch with my finger around the edges to highlight the texture. The gold frame was created by applying dots of Touch and then I used a cocktail stick to drag the paint.

I had fun with this sample. I cut out some flowers with Funky Foam and stuck them to cardboard. I then printed these flowers with Gesso and scored them with a cocktail stick. I added Pebeo Touch Deco paint to add some interest to the flowers.

These flowers were printed with my homemade foam stamps and Pebeo Studio Acrylic and Pebeo Deco Touch. I also added some cabachons for a bit of glitz. I made the leaves by cutting a flower in half.

Well I haven’t a lot of spare time at the moment. This has taken all afternoon to load these shots but I thought you would all like to see what I am up to. If you can get to the NEC this week come and say HI and stop to play at one of the FREE workshops, the show is from Thursday 22nd – Sunday 25th. Hope to see you there.
Love and light.

  1. Oh! – How beautiful and fun! Good luck with your workshops. I wish I could take them! 🙂

    I wish you could too Patricia. How cool would that be? When I get back from the show and I’ve got a bit more time I’ll do some step by step instructions for you and even people who have been to the show. You see so much and hear so much in a day that sometimes it’s hard to take it all in. So it helps if there are online instructions too. I’m glad you thought they were beautiful. My stuff is always a bit quirky and not to everyone’s taste so it’s great to know that you like them. Sue x

  3. I love the black and white painting with silver and gold and the pink fantasy garden. They look like you had fun making them 🙂 The hearts with the Fantasy Moon are also lovely. Wish I could come and learn how you made all of it.
