Having fun playing with some PaperArtsy stamps at the moment, this large tag thingy was background coloured with Distress Inks and Vivids then stamped with Squiggly Ink plates - a little bit of Fired Brick Crackle paint was added down one side and some gorgeous ribbon from Blonde Moments to finish it off.
I was having a little play with textures on this Frida Canvas, lots of Gel Medium and scrunched up tissue, mesh and other bits were added to the canvas first then Alcohol Inks over the top - it was looking very dark at that stage, so brightened it up with some Adirondak Dabbers in Sherbert Pink and Silver.
Busy, busy, busy, June kinda flew by, the last few weeks spent drowning in the deliciousness that is October Afternoon. Although, would you believe it I still haven't grabbed any for me - this little pile is nearly all gone now so I think I'll have to wait for the restocks to arrive before I can play.
Still - I have had a good stroke, so that will have to satisfy me for now.
I've already bagged my place high up in the queue for the new release which hopefully won't be too far behind, but hey considering this lot was ordered way back in February I won't hold my breath !!
Off to Stratford via London today, Scrapaganza UK kicks off tomorrow, so an early start from Lily's house in the morning - really looking forward to this, it should be a laugh. It will be like a mini beaver reunion with me, Lily, Anni, Mandy and Dyan. YAY !! Oh and work too, as I'm gonna be a Scrapshed slave for the weekend which will be so much fun. Ooooh and a class with Donna Downey too - what more could a girl want !!
So here I am at 0630hrs, on my second coffee and getting parcels packed, not even thought about my own packing yet, but plenty of time as my flight is not until 18.30hrs.
Got the new Core'dinations Cardstock in the shop yesterday, and it's selling like hot cakes, is this the new Bazzill ?? Each sheet has a toning colour core, so you can tear it, sand it, emboss it or just leave it like regular cardstock........and only 36p a sheet WOW !! The Black Magic Multipacks are already nearly out of stock already, so quickly got another order into my supplier. There are 20 Black sheets in a pack with a different colour core under each of them, these will be fab with the Cuttlebug embossing folders - can't wait to have a play.
It's blog revival time - finally found my blog lurking in the black hole of the web, time to start again me thinks !! Don't expect regular posts, I kinda forget I have a blog (or blogs) as I found several redundant ones lurking around that I had started and left to sink into oblivion. I may occasionally update this, I may post some cool stuff, who knows what will end up on here.........................
Having successfully ran an online craft shop for many years, the time had come to take it easy and find more time to create and play. Of course I couldn't leave it there and signed up as a Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. A fabulous range of high quality products and a brand new craft room, what a great combination !
