Ministry of Mixology Fun


As promised, here are some pics from the wonderful weekend away at Ministry of Mixology. I took my niece with me this time and she is a complete novice...or should I say, she was a complete novice 😊

 Day one saw us  in Antonis classroom where we made this fabulous book box. It is a pretty big project (assembled size is 14 x 10 x 3 inches) and loaded with technique. The main pic above shows the front (at this point I hadn't put the hinges on)  and the photo to the right shows the back of the book
Day two found us in Andy Skinner's workshop for another technique laden workshop where we produced this rather fabulous piece with  genius opening and closing shutters. 

Although we all started out with the same basic kit, the options to personalise were pretty much unlimited and the finished projects were all different and all fabulous.

Left is a photo of my project with the shutters closed
  The photo to the right is my project with the shutters open.

There were a variety of skull options for the inside of the shutters and a few heart options too...and I was lucky enough to get the heart in the random allocation draw.  The heart received the paint and antiquing cream treatment which brought out its full beauty.


                                                                                             On the left is a photo of my niece holding her day 2 project. She chose a skull and gave it her own cool decorative treatment.


She started out as a complete novice, a real mixed media baby and ended up a superstar.



We were both tired and inspired by the end of the weekend and we are looking forward to doing it all again at MOM 2018.

Until next time
