Butterfly Wishes Joseph’s Coat Technique

This is an old technique, but brand new to me. I saw Bruno Bertucci doing this and I had to try it. You can see his video here . I had great fun, but got very messy 😆

What is your favourite technique? Do you love a messy Technique or hate it? For me as a mum of five (eldest is 28 and youngest is 13), Grandma of two littles ones, aged 5 and almost 3 and a Rainbow Guider (Youngest members of Girlguiding UK at 5-7 year olds), mess comes with the territory. I have always enjoyed messy crafts and projects, but my husband who is autistic hates mess. It’s a miracle we have been married for 25 years 😆

Until next time, happy crafting
