Painted frame with a Treasure gold scallop frame, decorated with painted, stamped and cut out JoFY flowers. It's all about keeping the colour simple, and learning how to shade with fresco acrylic paints. Oh and it helps to be quick at cutting out! Otherwise you'll be taking this one home to finish.

Afternoon: Crackly on Canvas (£12)

There are a few tricks to using Crackly tissue paper onto a canvas, if done properly, it looks like you have stamped directly onto your canvas and produced a perfectly beautiful image.

So there you have it, we really hope you can make it to the show this coming week, remember its Thursday to Saturday, at the Sandown Exhibition Centre, Surrey. It's going to be nice to have a different format to usual with all these classes on offer, so we'll see you there!
