Julie and I are just home from a great weekend in Coventry with Andy Skinner and Michelle Webb at the first Ministry of Mixology event.

Sponsored by DecoArt, it was a weekend of fun and finding-out using the new Media range of products, in a coupe of mixed media projects.

Day 1 was with Michelle. we created a neat beach hut scene using the kit of pieces, book pages, stamping, texture mediums, crackle finishes, stencils, and various other techniques. 11207279_10154426113923902_835773985124287138_n

We spent the night at the hotel, which was a superb venue for the event. The teaching rooms were separated from the main hotel, but close enough to be part of the facility. Having the function in the same building as the accommodation and restaurant is a great idea. Everything in one place, no worry about getting there on time in the morning.

Day 2 was with Andy. A piece created in Andy’s ‘steampunk’ style, but with each person’s own personality built in. He was his usual self (for those who have seen him before) but with the added bonus of large screen technology – which he nearly mastered.1979648_10154428231148902_3393873407621525366_n

A great, well organised event. Good location, good venue and facilities, well timed classes with sufficient content, nicely timed. The new Media range from DecoArt is great to use, and you can achieve some fascinating effects, a good quality product. A good quality event. Thanks Andy; looking forward to the next one!
