Driftwood Art Class with Kate Crane

Went to a class at Art from the Heart yesterday taught by the brilliant Kate Crane.
It was all about painting on driftwood.

I adore being at the beach, seeing as I only live about 10 minutes away from one. 
I managed to add to Kate's driftwood supplies with a couple of beach combing trips before the class :)

It was nice to catch up with Kate and my crafty friends too, I hadn't seen them for a while :)
Sam you naughty girl, always trying to half inch my makes ;)

This is what I made, I love it, I might have to make more and sell at a craft fair in my local town. 


I found lots of good samples to paint on at the beach to take to the class.


I really liked the big block, so I could paint on all 4 sides!


 

The nails were perfect for hanging little flags off. :)


I still need to put a hanger on this one.


I think I have the painty bug back again. Thank you Kate for finding my mojo xx

See ya
