http://artfulleedesigned.blogspot.com.au/ held at http://www.scrapperswarehouse.com.au/store/index.php
Everyone had a very relaxing, free and easy, creating time.
We used the 'Atelier Free Flow Artists Acrylic's' by http://www.chromaonline.com/
These acrylic paints are so versitile. They act like Acrylics, Watercolours paints and Inks.
The pigment stays strong and vibrant throughout any mixed media use.

Hello, I recently conducted a Demonstration at the Society of Folk & Decorative Artists Society of Victoria.
These are the gorgeous colours from the Jo Sonja 'Vintage Collection'
The paint goes on as smooth as the the colours are!
The Vase was brown that I picked up from the junk shop. I gave it a light sand, painted a coat of All Purpose Sealer and continued to decorate in the Vintage Collection colour palette.
Here's a part of my display. From paper to Vase to fabric to metal. The paint goes on all these pieces beautifully.
Here I've decorated a large piece of paper with different techniques using the Vintage Collection Paints and Jo Sonja mediums.
A Metal heart that has Crackle Medium as well.
Thank you for visiting.
I'd be happy to answer any questions and respond to comments that are left if details are available.

Hello and Thank you for popping in to visit.
I thought I'd share a quick tutorial with you.
An altered album I did this week.
There are plenty of leaves falling off my tree, so I gathered a few and used them on the cover of the album.
I covered the board with Jo Sonja All Purpose Sealer and let dry.
Use Burnished Copper and a stiff Hog hair bristle brush and dry brush technique, paint this over the leaves and board.
I made some areas like the leaves and edges heavier.
Do you know what Dry Brush Technique is? Load the brush with paint, wipe it all off on a clean, dry cloth. When you can no longer see paint coming off the brush onto the clean towel, then its ready to apply to your painting.
I also applied the same colour and technique over the back of the board.
When I was happy with the covers, I painted them both with a couple of coats of Jo Sonja Decoupage Varnish.
This is a heavy, durable Water based, Gloss Varnish.
Perfect for this kind of Art.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial, please feel free to share it with your friends and blogging buddies.
