Using Inktense Pencils to Create Applique Fabrics

Put your adult colouring skills to work and play with inktense pencils to create flowers and leaves that will be cut out and used to create appliqués. This is a fun workshop where you will learn some of the tricks for colouring realistic images of your choice and then adding water to turn them into beautifully shaded fabrics. After the appliqués are created, you will cut them out and fuse them to a background. You can use my pattern for clematis or bring your own inspirations for flower or leaves.  To register contact me at [email protected] or phone 506-363-3560.
