Greetings from my little Clarity SHAC-Shack! How are things in your little SHAC-Shack? I do hope you are okay. Our daily Artworkout is going well! So glad you are enjoying it too.
I was thinking about the weeks ahead, was thinking that we should really make the most of all this time in isolation (together), to learn different colouring techniques too. Colouring-in is one of THE most mindful, calming pastimes out there. For ANYBODY. But we crafters are a curious bunch. Curious as in inquisitive! Enquiring minds! SO why not use this time to master shading, blending, feathering, stippling, dropshadows, eyes etc etc.
I’ve got the time to teach you, if you’ve got the time to learn.
I also think it would be ideal if we were all working on the same project together, so we can tackle the same elements together. So I came up with the following. Remember the Clarity Feathered Friends Colouring Book? Bit big for a chill session, and not everybody has got it. But there were some little bite-size Postcards from the same collection, which would be absolutely perfect as little bite-size lessons. Many of you may already have them, but many of you may not. To encourage you to take part in this virtual colouring course, we have reduced the price and packed a load of sets ready to go out ASAP – before Tim the Postman stops coming to collect.
Get them for the kids. Get them for the grandkids. Get them for the neighbours. And even if you don’t use them, get them as Easter presents for somebody who’s stuck indoors! If you want to buy 3 blue ones, or 3 red ones or 3 green ones, Jim assures me the 3 for 2 sale will also apply. But I will most definitely be using pictures from all 3 of them as we go along.
Now I’ve cracked this recording thing, I can record little colouring lessons for you, you see. We can do some together, to get the gist and the mindful benefits, and I can record little how-to videos for you to refer back to.
These images are also fab for adding doodles to. If you have got a set of Micron Pens, we sell them too. £13 for 7 different sizes is a knockout price.
And if you haven’t got any colouring pencils yet, then now’s the time! We have dropped the Perga Liners Box from £30 to £20 and the Polychromos from £130 to £99.
Sounds like I’m pushing? Well, I am!! In a few weeks time, when I reach for the postcards and focus on those colouring techniques, I really really want you to be able to join in. And when I listen to the news, I have the feeling ours days of shipping product out are numbered. I blimming hope we can keep going. I really do. There’s so much we can do to help folks struggling with the isolation and confinement! But hey, let’s be realistic. In the scheme of things, we really would not be classified as essential, and I totally understand that. So we do what we can while we can.
Stay safe and keep crafting!
Love and Hugs
