Thanks for popping in.
Tuesday’s Blog I can do as I please, right?
Well, the postman dropped a card through the door yesterday, telling us we had to go collect an envelope from the post office.
So off Dave duly trotted, in search of said envelope, armed with a utility bill and my passport.
And what should he find, but these four beautiful cards, which dear Emma made for the last TV show with Tina’s new plates on the 3rd December! Good Grief!!!!
So it’s taken them over 3 weeks to get here.
No, Emma hasn’t moved to New Zealand. She still lives in Scotland, don’t you, my little chickpea xxx
So that poor woman spent all those hours making this artwork for the TV, and then probably sat and watched the show, and thought what a waste of effort – they didn’t even bother showing them.
Well, darling Emma, if you are reading this, I hope that the following little tribute gallery, showcasing your art in its full glory, will go some small way to atoning for the disappointing absence of art on the telly.
This one is particularly beautiful,
mounted on Rainbow River Paper.
|Emma has used Tina Cox’s Floral Doodle Wreath Plate.|
Look at the detail!
Check out the frill and the delicate border.
Now look at this one! I LOVE the way Emma has used the paper in the background, almost like a meadow.
|This is Linda William’s Bumble Bee Plate|
In case you hadn’t figured it out, Emma is a very talented, experienced Parchment Expert.
Top banana. In fact, she joined us right at the very Groovi beginning, together with Sylvia Marshall. Emma and Sylvia were our two resident experts. Both still key players, loved and cherished. How lucky we are.
It burns me to think that poor Emma (Burns!) would have been watching the box, wondering why we didn’t show her work!
Look at the work on this one!
Superb, isn’t it.
You see, when I see this kind of Parchment work, I fall in love with it all over again. Emma has a gift for composition and colour second to none.
And then there was this bright blue piece.
You see, the task of a Design Team member is to use the latest plates, papers and tools being launched. Here, in this one sample, Emma has used: Linda’s Dragonfly plate,
about FIVE of the multi needle tools AND
the new Designer parchment.
I can feel another ii-Book coming on.
And these beauties are all – I am sure you will concur with me – worthy, bookworthy contenders.
Thanks Emma, not only for always creating superb samples for us, but also for being a good, loyal friend.
Love & Hugs,
