The Craft Barn - Gelato Week

Hi everyone, hope you had a good start to the week. Over at the Craft Barn Blog this week everyone is playing with Faber-Castell Gelato sticks and I'm doing a guest spot before my demonstration of them at the Craft Barn next Saturday 5th October which I'm very much looking foward to.

There's a write up of what I did with Gelato sticks to make my canvas and more pictures on the Craft Barn Blog and through the week lots of wonderful inspiration from the design team.

Ooh, that looks completely lovely, Chris - I'm off to have a closer look. Wish I could come and learn about Gelatos from you, but it's just not going to happen this time around, sadly!
