Feed Your Creativity… Photos From A Distressing Workshop

I can sense the changing seasons – summer is winding down, and people are coming back inside…. and looking around …wondering where they’d like to start.

Last night I held a Distress for Success Workshop, featuring Caromal Colours textured basecoats, and nine turned out –  a great response, considering its still summer vacation (most kids aren’t back to school until next week)

What  a fun night!  The more of these workshops I host, the more I enjoy them.     Every group is unique – I see new things, I field new questions,  and then I get to stand by and watch everyone create really nice stuff,  while listening to their positive praise  – the ease of application, a great look,  the limitless choices….

Here are some photos from the workshop – I hope you enjoy!
