Groovi, Funky and Easy!

Groovi, Funky and Easy!

Hi there.

Thanks for popping in. Just watching our Josie and Paul on HOCHANDA blowing the blimming Palace doors off again! I am so very grateful to Josie for her splendid design ideas. She has taken to this TV presenting lark like a duck to water as it were! Sold out already, and chomping through extended stock again. Thank you for watching, supporting Clarity and investing in us.

And thank you to Josie and Paul for being so good at what they do, and sharing their skills so gladly.


I ran out of time during my 2-4pm show earlier, so I’d like to give my little Groovi offering a quick airing here – just to exemplify that parchment art can be very funky and modern too. We often think of parchment art as very tidy, clean and ivolving a great deal of time, cutting and embossing. Not with me! Take a look here, and see how you can create something very 3-d without so much as waving an embossing tool or a pair of scissors at it!

It’s easier to actually do than explain. I think I may have to youTube this one. Yes. That’s what I’ll do. It doesn’t take long. But it just goes to show how you can make effective parchment art without all the traditional skills. They will come with time, but with a little clever shading and erasing, you can create cool 3-D illusions. Try it!

Love & Hugs,

Barb xxx

  1. Great shows (got to watch them all, no interruptions!) great products, great ideas. Clarity rocks. Loved the samples.
    Have a good evening.

  2. Thanks for sharing this project as it looks fantastic yet not difficult to achieve once you know what to do. Something else to add to the ”to do” list.
    Fabulous programmes so far today, need to catch up with the 8pm show & hopefully there will be more tomorrow depending on how the stock goes. On the other hand Paul & Josie could be heading home early !!

  3. Hi Barb,
    Haven’t got to watch your show yet, but was back in time to catch Josie and Paul’s first show – excellent. Well done to both of them especially Josie and congratulations on another sell out. Managed to get mine in the first couple of minutes so I’m very happy! Love the funky foliage piece you’ve done for us tonight as well. As you say, very modern look for parchment – brilliant. Just finished watching Line of Duty and hoorah there will be another series! Love and hugs Alison xx

  4. Great shows haven’t watched all but what seen so fare great. What fantastic plates tonight and Josie was wonderful xxx

  5. Well done Barbara you’ve done it again.
    Only trouble is I have to wait to use my new boards and dies etc as I can only use left hand at the moment , right hand out of action for a while, so frustrating.

  6. Great shows today… watched this afternoon and Josie’s debut/launch managing to get my order thro in the first few minutes without a hitch then sat back to watch the demos. Looking forward to new plates arriving although it may be a little while before I can ‘play’ with them as got quite a lot going on here at the mo! xx

  7. Loved Josie, loved Paul Loved you great shows all recorded so I can try and learn a bit more x

  8. There was so much for my brain to take in yesterday! Your show in the afternoon was fantastic and I learned so much, although I have still not succumbed to stamping, as I am terrified of becoming an addict. I have decided that I would rather watch and admire all your other talents and stick to Groovi.
    Well done Josie! Your new plates are beautiful and you are a natural on TV. I watched the first show, but will catch up with the other today. I treated myself to one of the new plates and will get the others as I can afford them. I chose by doing ‘eenie, meenie, mynie, mo’, as I couldn’t decide! 😂 Hope you are having a day off today. Hugs.

  9. Hi Barbara
    The new plates look beautiful, I’m not surprised they sold out really quickly. Haven’t watched the shows yet as we had family round and our daughter flew home for an unexpected visit now her exams have finished which is lovely, love the funky parchment, must have a go with light and shade as I get it wrong half way through and need to practice! Belated happy birthday to Katy , what alovely suprise.
    Love Diane xxx

  10. Hello Barb, loved your show, have not caught up with Josie and Paul’s show yet, but hopefully some time today will give me the chance. Love your Groovi offering. Take care all. Bx

  11. Barbara, this is so inspiring. Do put it on YouTube. I think the shading is fantastic on this it looks so classy.
