Midweek Gelatos....

At the Inky Fingers Club next Wednesday, up at The Craft Barn, we're going to be experimenting with Gelatos and some of the latest Crafty Individuals stamps. After trying out all sorts of techniques, we're going to use them to make some canvases, one feminine:


and one more masculine:


There'll be a wide range of colours available so you can choose what you like.

 If you've always wanted to try Gelatos out, but didn't know where to start, then this is the session for you. You don't have to belong to the club, you can just come along to whichever sessions take your fancy.

Thanks for looking!

Get out your brayers....

I've got a class on Sunday 15 March (this week) at The Craft Barn using Kaleidacolor inkpads and brayers combined with some of the lovely Woodware meadow stamps. Here's some examples of what we'll be making:




All sorts of different ways to build up the grasses and create Kaleidacolor backgrounds.
So, if you fancy having a go, then come along and join us!

A little bit of Stampbord magic!

You know how much I love Stampbord and I've particularly enjoyed working on the ATC size pieces.
I've got a workshop with Stampbord over at That's Crafty in Essex, a new place for me, on Saturday 28 March where we'll be making projects like this one:


We'll be looking at how to apply colour, how to stamp on it, all the various Stampbord tools and how to create a larger project as well. 
So, if you fancy coming along just click on the link above.

Thanks for looking!

PaperArtsyopolis.....

It's Miniature Art over on the PaperArtsy blog at the moment, so I thought I'd use some little ribbon spools to create something. Here's a close-up of what I made:


Head on over to their blog to see the whole thing!

Brushos

Here's a card I've made using a Brusho background and PaperArtsy Hot Pick 1305:


In fact it uses two different backgrounds, one using clingfilm and one that is blown!
Here's a close-up:

Demo at The Craft Barn

I had a lovely time on Saturday demoing at The Craft Barn - I was using the new Lynne Perrella stamps and Distress Markers. Here are a couple of easy cards that I made:



These use the Lynne Perrella LPC032 set, which are lovely fine line, quite tall stamps. Very versatile and easy to use.

Talking about The Craft Barn , I've got a class coming up making a Quirky Clock using a Tando kit and, by coincidence, Lynne Perrella stamps! 
It's on Saturday 21 February and uses paints, acetate and lots of staples! Come along and join me if you fancy some fun and a real working clock at the end:




I've also got the second session of my Inky Fingers Club coming up shortly after on Wednesday 25 February in which we're going to be trying out Brushos and when I say trying out I mean just that - every which way but loose. You'll go home with a selection of projects and sample cards with all the techniques. Here's a sneak peek:
