Thanks for popping in. Just had the BEST day with Churchy ! We were prepping for Sunday’s TV shows. 2-4pm then 6pm. Fabulous stencils illustrated by our Mel in the afternoon, and a collection of exquisite stamp designs by a new and very talented illustrator, who has joined the Clarity family: Cherry Green. Lovely lady. Great artwork. I look forward to introducing you to her on Sunday evening. I have invited her to join us for the opening hour, so you can make her acquaintance. I think it is great to meet the artist, don’t you? I wonder if we’ll ever be able to coax Mel onto your screens… I blimming doubt it! She even hates having a photo taken!
Actually, we got off to a bit of a faltering start with the prep today; you know how it is. You’ve got an ocean to swim and the water’s really cold! But once we got coated in gilding flakes and glue and paint, and got EVERYTHING out of the cupboard – well then we had a blast, and things came together very nicely. We had a right revelation too, a super break through on the Gelpress, and we’ve decided to hold it back till the retreats, so we’ve got something new and really cool for the workshops. I am always so quick to share, and I do it gladly! But we do need a good new technique or two at the Clarity Summer Retreats. There are still a handful of spaces if you would like to join us. Go to the website for details.
Then Paul went home, and I settled down to watch our Sam in action. Blimming excellent technique. Now I get how she does the washy background and the really arty shapes!! I would LOVE to try that. And I also LOVE LOVE LOVE those hat ladies she has used! Beautiful stamps. I am pretty certain our Lou Withers has got them on her next TV show… I must check. Anyway, check out this week’s Youtube. Awesome art. Sam is a natural at this.
