Clare's Summer School

Clare ran a summer school again this year for a few people over on CMLI.  I don't get time to join in much with CMLI these days but love the work Clare does.  We are so lucky that she is willing to take time to make videos to share her knowledge.
Better late than never as it was almost autumn by the time I got round to doing the summer school - hence my autumnal colours.
 I have actually used the lid of a kraft box from the Works as my 'canvas'- it is quite small (maybe 4 inch square?)
 My first layer was furniture chalk paint (pinched from Mum)! Then came some shimmer paint, stamping in bronze brilliance ink and stencilling with acrylic paints.
 The butterflies and flowers were collaged on using tissue paper as shown in the summer school.  I then stamped again on bookpages to add more dimension.
The girl image is one of Clare's Paperartsy stamps coloured with pencil crayons for a change (I normally colour everything with promarkers!).

We are indeed, very lucky. Your project is just fab, Louise - very inventive using the box too
