Angie Hughes Lecture ‘Myself & My Work’ was followed by a workshop ‘Mixed Media Book Covers’ which was indeed a mixed media delight.  We started making the book wraps by using simple hand stitching onto pelmet Vilene, this was sealed with a coat of gesso and then enhanced using layers of acrylic paint.  The group happily dabbled in colours ranging from bright, clashing colour schemes to soft, delicate layers of stitch, paint and paper punched daisies.  There was a vast array of (almost) finished book covers (see photos) that I am sure will inspire many of our members to rush back to our sales table to stock up on more Vilene to produce books galore for Christmas presents!!
Thanks Angie for a great paint splashing day!
