Thanks for popping in! Thought I’d block a step by step today of a demo I had prepped for last week’s TV show on HOCHANDA, but didn’t get to. it involves the big and beautiful brand new 12 inch x 12 inch Designer pads….
They are on offer this week until Tuesday, because Paul used them in the YouTube Tuesday video – so might be a good time to investigate!
Anyway. Here’s my offering:
The new flowerbed stamps were very well received. Sold out very quickly – and we’ve been scrambling to catch up making them all week Thank you so much!
Decide which stamps you want to play with. Mount on the Clarity handles provided. Decide which paper you want to use. Pull it out of the pad.
Now look closely at the large spread of colour. Consider carefully where to plant your brick wall, or stone wall, or log pile… then go for it. Ignore straight on. This paper is big enough to carry a diagonal layout.
Mask off the stone wall or whichever base you have used, and then plant your flowers. I am using a Black Archival ink pad here.
The grasses are super for adding to the front or sides. See? Tear a piece of copy paper using the deckle edge on the blending mat. Straight – but deckled.
Time to tear. Use a ruler for the sides and base, but carefully go freehand on the top curve. Once that’s done, you can settle in to colouring with Perga Liners B and A pencils work on the paper beautifully.
Let’s have a cheeky little sale on the pencils for a few days too. CLICK HERE
Spray mount the paper to one of our Kraft card 7 x 7 blanks and trim the side flush. Or wrap it round. Whichever works for you.
There are any number of permutations possible on the Designer Papers using various combinations of the stamps. What a lovely gift set complete with matching envelopes this would make, too.
Time to go indoors. Kicking back and chillaxing before it begins again tomorrow. We are doing TV hours streaming live from HOCHANDA at the NEC next week, so I’d best prepare a bit!! In fact, we’ve got a busy TV week again!
Maria is on telly on Wednesday 12 noon and 4pm
I am on at 12 noon, with a set of really cool new stencils. If you like the town stencil, you will love these!
Linda Williams is on from the NEC Friday 12 noon with a set of NEW Pergamano Tools
Me again on Saturday 12 noon . Let me think… ah yes. Fab new 3-way overlay stamps – The Earth Listens Design. Beautiful
