Teachers Prezzies!

Hello Blogland hope everyone is well and not too hot in this heatwave?
Well as usual Emily had a list of teachers requiring gifts...8 in total! I thought I had thought about it early enough but was still rushing at the end as you do.
Off I went to the works to get some not very in-expensive canvases and little box and this is how they started off after a quick coat of all things Fresco!

The general rule of thumb was a mixture of fresco paint and grunge paste on the background with some PaperArtsy Lin Brown stamps...followed by some JOFY, Lynne Perrella and Chocolate Baroque stamping and painted with some detail. So without further ado I'll add the pics and the materials used on each one, I even made notes so I wouldn't forget but bet I still get something wrong! LOL

  8. These work brilliantly! But I'm pretty sure I've been before and said so - so I hope that message got through somewhere!
