I hope you’re enjoying this lovely mild weather and sunshine!
I’m up at the studios, waiting to go live,
but thought I’d spend five minutes with you.
Calms the mind,
and get me out of this strange Shopping TV Bubble
which I am in for 2 days again.
As Sheila so wisely suggested yesterday, Let’s enjoy it!
I’m here doing it, and I may as well have some fun!!
Not that I am miserable!
But I believe I can be as happy as I make up my mind to be!!
Here’s a little peek of what’s coming up…
this is the second demo in the first hour.
Just in case I don’t get to it,
or you can’t watch on telly.
4 different Ribbon Word A5 Groovi Plates
Each of the plates have words to compliment the main word
You can buy them in the above pairs or individually HERE
Trace out the design in the middle of your piece of A5 Parchment
Use a similar size to your circles to create a further frame
(Straight or Diagonal available)
I have gone with the Straight.
Remember to turn you work over as well when piercing, as we need to work from the front!
Turn over your blue Groovi Mat and working on the soft side, pierce through to create your pattern
Repeat in each corner
To add some detail to the circle border, I have used the confetti pieces from the plate
and then added some white work
Add some extra lines of different lengths in each corner
Add some little dots at the end of the lines – you can do this freestyle or with the Groovi Grids
Time to add some colour
I find that if I want a really solid black colour, the Distress Markers do a great job.
Striking and effective
Gotta go and get miked up.
(Sounds positively exciting! Who’s Mike??)
love & hugs
