It’s been a week since Ministry of Mixology #2, and what a great weekend it was. There were some changes in the way the Saturday evening workshops were run, and these were an improvement over #1.

Julie and I arrived Friday night and headed for the bar for the meet and greet session with the DecoArt, Tando Creative, Stampendous, and Craft Stamper teams. Always a good start to an event I say.IMG_0531

On Saturday we we in Kate Crane‘s class. We did a mixed media piece using stencils, stamps, decoupage and white journalling pens. I was pleased to learn a technique involving DecoArt Media Tinting Base and Media Fluid Acrylics. Kate is great to work with, she is so relaxed that when visitors came in to the room the atmosphere was described as zen-like.

IMG_0532Sunday we were with Andy Skinner. Andy’s style is industrial-steampunk-dark-goth if you like. We created a shadow box using paint techniques to produce the appearance of metal plates, with rusty bolts, with rust and verdigris. Andy continues to entertain and educate with new finishes and effects.

A great weekend – as usual credit to the organisers. Great venue, ideal location, and super combination of teachers.
