Thanks for popping in.
Several people have asked me to go through some examples of the various patterns you can make with a Groovi Grid.
– or ANY grid for that matter!
If you haven’t ramped up your parching skills and invested in our fabulous Groovi Grids, you oughta think about it.
I still cannot get over how many patterns you can make out of a couple of acrylic plates with a load of holes drilled in them!
It was my dear friend Dee Paramour who opened my eyes.
She sent in a piece of artwork with loads of different patterns on it, and I had a real Aha!-moment.
You know the sort; when the light goes on,
and you cotton on to what was glaringly obvious.
It’s her birthday today.
Altogether, let’s shout all the way to Bognor!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR DEE !!!
I think that most people who know her and know her work
will agree that she is one of the most talented, gifted, artists in the Crafting World.
I feel very, very privileged to have her on the Clarity Design Team, and even more privileged to have her as a friend.
And check out Maria! Can you believe it’s the same woman ???
Anyway, back to the pricking and embossing…
Buy the pair, get the piercing tools free!
I thought the best thing to do would be to take some close ups of the technique-tags I showed you on the TV last week.
The Tag shape is taken from our Tag Border/Octagon set:
Let’s just take a quick look at each tag and let’s have a little review.
Basically, we just have to decide which grid was used:
Straight Grid or Diagonal Grid?
And was the piece done with the pricking tool from the front,
or embossed with the No. 2 tool from behind?
I’ll start us off…
Embossed with No. 2 Tool from behind.
Well done! Wasn’t hard, was it!
Now let’s have a competition.
Come on! You love a challenge!!
It’s a two-parter.
Part 1: write down the answers to the 7 tags above.
(I’ve already given you No. 1!)
Part 2: using the grid which you should have by now,
(or should be receiving in the next couple of days!)
make 2 more patterns using the plates.
send them to me in an email photo.
And Dee! You can join in too !!
Then I will gather them all together
and create a bumper pattern-making blog.
Or book. Or film.
Sup to you. Pends how menny….
Is there a winner?
I will pick a random winner next Tuesday, and that random winner will receive a £20 Clarity Gift Voucher!
And tomorrow, it’s time to tune in to HOCHANDA
and watch lovely Maria in action.
Her shows are at 1pm and 5pm.
She will be combining Stamps and Groovi.
Not to be missed…..
love & hugs,
