Hi there!
Thanks for popping in!
It’s all go here in Crowborough!
Spent another 2 days with
another fab group of lovely arty people.
Sorry to see them go…
but also looking forward to welcoming group three tomorrow.
In the meantime,
won’t stop to chat long tonight, 
but want to get your creative juices flowing 
AND your competitive streak!!!
So take a look at this framed piece of artwork I did a while back…
Can you work out how I did it?

I think I remember…
It’s not dissimilar to my backplate on this ‘ere blog!
Anyway, let’s have some fun.
Since I am in a bit of a spin just now,
I would like you to help me figure out how I did this. 

Step by step and which ingredients.

Then email me the instructions
I will send the person who comes up with the closest solution, 
the most accurate instructions,
a little gift:

A £20 Gift Voucher in a Barbara-Card.
I’m sure I can rustle up a nice card to send it in!!!!

You’ve got until Sunday to enter your steps,
and you’ve got to be in it to win it, as they say!!

Parallel to that, I think we should have a little Gelli Plate offer.

Buy the 8″ x 10″ Gelli Plate (rrp £29.99)
for the price of the 6″ x 6″ (rrp £19.99)

Offer ends midnight Sunday 

love and hugs,

  5. First of all, thank you, Barbara for making this such a fabulous time. I have had a ball and my brain is working overtime to absorb all the great techniques, hints and tips you have shared with us. Thank you also to all the Clarity team, including lovely Paul Church for all they have done too..Now I think I need to get all those things home to start using the new improved ideas. Hope you soon get the good news you and Dave need. xx xx Maggie

  11. Hi Barbara. Many many thanks for a great 2 days Mon/Tues to you and all the team. It was so relaxing to spend 2 days on something I love and I appreciate how much you have put into the organisation of the retreat especially after the weekend you had! I hope the new group gave you a good time and not too many of them were contenders for the remedial table!! Hi to everyone from table 4, hope the home journeys were good. Hoping this works as it's my first ever comment and I've been trying since Tuesday to make it work. Much love Barbara C xxx

    1. We were very good on Wednesday and Thursday, Barbara Cornell. Hope Barbara Gray thought we were as good in what we produced. We certainly had a fabulous time. Can't wait till next year. Just got to unpack the car now, but then I can get Groovi again. xxx Maggie PS I really must practice getting the outy for the blue tit into place without Paul's very welcome help. xx

  12. Hi Barbara
    Fabulous artwork. The colours are beautiful. I am trying to come up with the recipe. I hope Dave continues to improve and that his test results bring good news.
    A big HUG from Chris x

  13. This is gorgeous and will get my thinking cap but I'm afraid my brain is a bit like putty at the moment. The piece is so pretty and there is lots going on there. Glad the second group have had a good time at the retreat and hope the last one goes well. Hope Dave is improving and that news arrives soon. x

  14. Hello Barb, this is such a lovely piece of art, will have to get my thinking cap on. Sounds like everyone is having so much fun and getting so much inspiration from the retreats. Hope the last one goes well. And hope that Dave continues to improve and the results come through soon. Have a fabulous Friday everyone. Bx

  15. Hi Barbara
    Oh I will have to get my thinking cap on, I like a challenge! I'm usually rubbish at them but I like the fun of thinking! What a great gelli offer too, you are kind to us. Hope Dave us still resting and you get some news soon. Lots of love Diane xxx
    Brenda's sending you a hug my lovely lady and hope you are taking little steps to get back to us xxx

  16. Love the colours and the overall design Barbara – no wonder it ended up in a frame. I'll have a little guess at how you did it, but not always good at trying to replicate things I did myself, so it will be a challenge!!! Sending love and a little bit of sunshine to Brenda M, Susan X
