Blog, blog blogging!

Yes, I've changed it again! Although I liked the different photo things you could do, it was driving me mad that none of the blog lists etc were visible and people kept saying they couldn't find anything. So, for the moment, after another 3 hours fiddling about with it,  I've gone to this ultra simple layout, which, although a bit bland, at least has everything on view!

Meanwhile I was up at the Craft Barn yesterday and picked up some stuff I'm going to be demoing at their mega Extravaganza at the end of June. On the Saturday I'm going to be doing stuff with Faber-Castell oil pastels, Dylusions sprays and these fabulous circus stamps from Oxford Impressions. I say 'stuff' 'cos I haven't made any of it yet!

I've just been trying out the pastels with stencils:

Very early days yet though!

Meanwhile next weekend, Saturday 19 May, I'm teaching my Men and Bleach class. This promises to be fun and uses lots of techniques: masking, bleaching, double embossing etc. so if you want to come along there are still a couple of places left here.

Thanks for looking!

Ohh Helen this all looks very exciting. I will hopefully get to the extravaganza this year as the craft barn is my sister's LCS. I am really looking forward to seeing you work. I will sit there and stare and put you off lol . Carol x
