Greetings from the NEC!
It was great to see so many friends and familiar faces today!
Happy to report that the new stand was well received, and the stamps and artboards stayed on the wall! Always a welcome relief.
Forgot my Ipad at the B&B in the morning, which is tantamount to leaving my brain there. So decided to peel a piece of artwork from yesteryear off one of the boards, and bring that back to the farm to blog .
Wow! This takes me back!
the hills into the background.
Can you remember? Hands up if you do…
That’s right! I used a Versamark pen to colour the tree trunks,
and then glazed them with clear embossing powder.
Oh yes. And do you remember the Classroom Show on TV, when I showed you how to draw birds on the wire?
Started a right old bird frenzy back then,
when all loads of us wanted to do was draw little birds on everything!
Mind you, the kidney shaped one here looks like he’s eaten some dodgy seeds!
It’s only when you look back at what you were doing a couple of years ago,
that you realise just how far you’ve come.
And in my case, that goes for more than just artwork.
So what kind of cardstock do you think I used here?
Claritycard. The coated stock. Still the best card for brayering on.
In fact, tomorrow I may just have to dig out my brayer and take a trip down Memory Lane.
There are so many new crafters always joining our merry band, and what may be old hat to us will be totally new and interesting to them.
See you tomorrow!
Lots of love,
