Just got home, after a very succesful and enjoyable
couple of days at HOCHANDA.
Jayne’s beautiful Groovi Flower Plates are just about to sell out,
which makes my day at so many different levels.
At 9am this morning I played with the superb Dahlia Groovi Plates.
|Pair of Dahlia Plates|
I just wanted to show you how easy it is to position the butterfly
in front of the box frame by just sliding the butterfly plate in on top of the Frame Plate and embossing it into position first.
Let’s get in a little closer, to check out the colouring in.
Polychromos Faber Castell, or Spectrum Noir Blending Pencils.
Both have a waxy consistency which works well on parchment
If you watched, you may have noticed the two huge Ball tools
I was using….
They are both larger than the 2 tools in the
Then there was the lovely writing from the large frame which goes with the Floral Collection.

Spot the difference…..
There is something perfectly charming about these flower illustrations by Jayne Nestorenko.
Whether without colour, just with whitework..
or in full bloom, in all their glory.
I love the Dahlias, but I really can’t pick a favourite.
They’re all fantastic.
And the samples from the Design team!
Well, blow me down with a feather!!!
They would graciously argue that Jayne’s flowers are inspirational, and that you can’t really go wrong with them.
Many, many thanks to the DT ladies who inspire and delight.
Look at these two Agapanthus offerings, from Josie Davidson and Gail Sydenham, two of our traditional parchers who are enjoying our Groovi system! So different and yet using the same plates.
|And then there’s this beautifully thoughtful piece by Julie Owen, which involves a whole other lot of skillsets.
Well, it’s time for me to stop for the day.
Paul is still working his little cotton socks off at the studios.
He is thinking on his feet and doing a brilliant job.
Where would I be without this Clarity team?
Don’t answer that !!!
Love & Hugs always,
