The October issue of Craft Stamper (UK) is in the shops now and this month I have a Paint Effects Masterclass article published. Yay! I had a lot of fun doing this one that's for sure :-) I included some tips on stamping with paint, masking, splatting (messy but goody!), emboss resist and how to create a faux collaged background. Really, you can't have too much fun with acrylic paints LOL!
And now for a quick lookie at something different. While I was on holiday this year we visited the most lovely town call Pezenas which is packed full of arty shops. I came across a bead shop, a real treasure trove called metissage . Now, I'm not really into beading but I could have spent days in this shop. I managed to restrict myself to beads for just one necklace and made this:
It was good fun to make but surprisingly it didn't actually take me that long. If I got into beading in a big way I think I would spend a small fortune!
Bye for now
