I hope you are all well.
So, you may have noticed that the Blog has had a bit of a makeover!
It has been a work in progress for a while, with Mr Jim transferring all of the previous posts, images and comments over to the new site.
If you commented on yesterdays blog, unfortunately they were lost in the transfer, sorry.
It still needs a few tweaks, so please bear with us.
You will notice that the address of the blog has also changed www.barbaragrayblog.com but Jim has worked his magic and if you are using the old link, you will automatically be redirected here!
I will be continuing with the Blog until Monday and then it is over to Barbara.
I know that she has lots and lots of exciting things to tell you!
That means I have a few more days of being naughty and tempting you with even more 20% Blog Offers!
Today’s Meet the Artist is:
So, let’s have a look at what Jane has done:
Add some white work to the poppies and the frill on the frame.
To get a proper frilly look on the frame, you need to do white work on the back and the front.
Do the white work on the front of the frills shown as A
Do the white work on the back of the frills shown as B
When working on the front, it is best to place a cello bag (the packaging that the plates come in) over the parchment and this will stop the parchment from going shiny.
Take a Pergamano 2 needle bold tool and perforate around the outside of the frill.
Emboss the diagonal dots from behind using the Basic Diagonal A5 Grid on the inside of 3 sides of the frame.
Turn the parchment over and perforate from the front, each side of the embossed dots and then picot cut.
Using a Pergamano 1 or 2 needle bold tool, perforate around the outside of the frame.
Use the Basic Straight A5 Grid to ensure that you get the perforations in a straight line and then picot cut.
If you are not sure how to do this, then check out this weeks YouTube Tuesday video where Rosie shows you how to!
Okay, since I have a few more days to be naughty, lets add the following items to the 20% Blog Offers:
If you check out the Offers page on the website, you will see that the Perga Brads are also on special offer!
To leave a comment, you need to scroll all the way down to the bottom!
Ok, another little tweak – when you post a comment for the first time on the new blog, it has to be approved.
Jim tells me that I only have to approve you once and then going forward, your comments will appear automatically.
So, if your comment does not appear straight away, it means that I haven’t approved it yet!
