De stempelwinkel- Painted Bottles Clean And Simple and Class photos.

A little clean and simple make for me over at De Stempelwinkel today using Decoart's Chalk Finish Paint for glass (you can bake this in the oven for a durable dishwasher safe finish) and Stamps that are available from De Stempelwinkel, Links can be found on my post over at De Stempelwinkel.
If you have time it would be great to see you over there and remember we now have a new challenge blog running, the theme at the moment is Winter and there is a prize for the winner each challenge. Details can be found at the top of the sidebaron the De Stempelwinkel page.
Now some of you have probable seen these pics before as I put them on Facebook last night but here are the results from Sundays class in Daventry with Ali-craft. A very busy day but lots of fun, thank you to all the ladies and gent that came along. I ove how everybodys piece is so different although each step and technique was the same.

29 participants in total and one busy day but we all got there ;) I had loads of fun and managed to put a few faces to people I know on Facebook or have seen at other shows.
The class was a 12" canvas and we used products from the Decoart Media Line and the brand new (about to be released) Andy Skinner Stencils. I'm a big fan of this release as the designs lend themselves to so many different types of project.
If you are interested in any of my classes you can find a schedule at the top of the page, Ill be in Southampton and Newcastle soon.
Thanks for stopping by xx
