Thanks for popping in. Tying up preps and demos for this weekend. First up, 11am and 2pm Saturday, it’s those Chinese lanterns I drew, together with a smashing new Clarity Mixed Impressions set of Texture Stamps. Our clever Saffron created these – blimming excellent – so brilliant to use!
Paul and I will be working together, and he will be demonstrating the Groovi version of these designs.
Clever Karen Jackson has masterminded the demos for us, and Paul will gently guide you through the how-to steps in his wonderful calm way.
Then at 4pm, for just one sweet hour, I shall be showcasing another little set of my own illustrations: the floral framers. Remember last month I showcased them in stamp format?
Well, this Saturday at 4pm I shall be introducing them to you in Groovi format.
As you know, things here at Clarity Towers are all over the place – literally! Up the road, down the road, in a box, on the van – everywhere!!! Moving a factory whilst spinning TV shows and Club members’ Sales is no mean feat. Throw in the random storm and the occasional hip replacement – and suddenly my dance card is pretty full ! So. I have called on the help of that lovely Welsh friend of ours, Linda Williams to put her spin on these plates – and she has come up total trumps. I am so excited to show you the ideas she has come up with! Really ingenious actually.
Mmmm. Let me show you the artwork we are going to make, shall I? So many tricks and tips packed into this beautiful piece – I shall give it my best shot! At first glance, I thought, blimey. How am I going to replicate this?!? But then, once dissected and reconstructed, it’s actually very, very doable. And if I can do it, you can do it, too.
Even if I don’t get close to finishing it during the 4pm hour, I shall certainly do a proper Youtube tutorial on it – once we set up the new recording suite in the new building! Linda even did a second project for me to do! Bit optimistic! Also very beautiful. I have a feeling this will make another cut too. Thanks Linda. You are a good friend. You know I am disappearing in ever decreasing circles, so you reach out and you lift the load. Teamwork makes the dream work.
That’s Parchment Art for you. It takes time, doesn’t it? In fact, it takes as long as it takes. It’s also probably one of the most beautiful, relaxing and mindful processes out there – especially using our Groovi System.
Love and Hugs,
