Busy weekend!


It was the preview day at Art from the Heart yesterday and I was there to help, doing a bit of demo-ing, a few make'n'takes and a lot of talking :-)  Above is an ATC I made using the new ink sprays (love love love them!!) You can also see some gold acrylic paint on this ATC, and the image is by Stampotique of course.

Here's another ATC using the new paints this time, and another image by Stampotique.


Throughout the day we made lots of flowers. LOTS! These were made using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die (which incidentally is very difficult to get hold of here in the UK unless you are prepared to bid silly money on e-bay!) and some of the ink sprays to colour the old dictionary pages which the flowers were cut from:


The day was a lot of fun and I ended up with multi-coloured hands AGAIN!! And as well as having a lot of inky painty fun, we raised some money for Dyan's favourite 'carers' charity.


Byeeeeeeeeeee I'm off to bed as I've almost got to the end of 'The girl with the dragon tattoo' and I just have to know what happens!! My book now has a beautiful strokable cover :-)   Have a look here to see what I'm talking about ......

  14. THANKYOU soooooo much for your reply!!! I'll look into why you can't send emails to me ???
    Anyway.......I followed your link and OMG, they are only 5 minutes from where I work!!!!!!!! So, guess where I'll be heading tomorrow. I'm going to ring them in the morning & ask if I can buy direct from there and if I can I'll be counting the minutes to my lunch & going straight there, via the bank of course to get a loan !! LOL

    All the range of gorjuss is lovely I'm not sure which to pick first.

    Your ATCs are lovely, I love stampotique. In fact it seems ages since I've been to dyans so a trip there might be in order aswell!

    Thankyou again.x
