Maria Wiley Mini Workshop

Thank you BAVA ladies for making last Saturday, my first teaching of a workshop ... such a pleasurable experience! 

I thoroughly enjoyed  sharing some great texture techniques I'd learned last year from Gary Reef ... being a 'Mini' workshop with only around 5 hours it meant we had to get through the 4 techniques pretty quickly ... I'm happy to say all my 'students' (haha that gives me such a buzz) did a great job! Some WIPS were taken home to be completed at a later stage and from the positive feedback I'm receiving ... I am sure you will be able to incorporate them into your future artwork!

As you can see we had lots of FUN ... especially with the Hippy Hat! lol
