Margot Clark Seminar

Painting with friends at the Yorkshire Decorative Painting Group in Yorkshire.

MARGOT CLARK  SEMINAR. Learning new techniques with a fabulous International teacher.

Playing with MUD, Poppies, Hellebores and Morning Glories.

4 projects working on each one each of the 3 days :-)

4 unfinished projects, but techniques learnt and played with two since in my studio.

Poppies - no point in trying to mend all the mistakes made during the classes! Re-painted on a photo album so much easier to start again. Fabulous project. Thank you Margo for superb teaching.

Playing with Margot's Mud technique, extremely addictive :-)

First of my Christmas projects

Small snowflake ornaments.
Designed by Jamie Mills-Price from her book Christmastime Between the Vines 4
Reminder to self, filigree cutouts are a pain to basecoat :-)

Happy Painting


Witchy Boots designed by Sheila Landry Designs

These are resized and cut from 3/4" MDF - freestanding cutouts.

LOVE these boots, complete with black boot laces.

Pumpkin Bears - Inspired by Sandra Malones "Bear-E's
Freestanding - 3/4" MDF

Ballerina Cutout

 Design by Ana Dickinson

A super duper design and a lot of fun to paint, time consuming but well worth the effort.

Substituted some of the colours with what I have in my stash of paint.

Free standing Butterflies

Craft Fair Stock..

 Butterflies - designed by Chris Thornton Deason from her book "Blessings"
Loved painting this pretty delicate design, tried Blue, Pink, Lilac and Cream.
Added wire antennae. The instructions said silk flower stamens, I found that they were a tad floppy!

         Which colour would you choose?
