Thanks for popping in. Day 1 of the Pergamano Party here. In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, Grace has written a perfect intro blog over on our Clarity Matters Blog, explaining what we’re up to and why.
It’s amazing how quickly the Groovi side of Clarity has grown, isn’t it. And since we bought Pergamano two or three years ago, even diehard traditional parchers have joined us and embraced our Groovi system.
Our Groovi plates just make the transfer of designs to parchment so much easier! Anybody can do it ! But many of us have then moved on to learn all those beautiful trad parching skills; the Groovi plates are just the vehicle to whitework, gridwork, multi-needle work etc. That said, we do work with some of the most creative, talented designers and parchers in the world! Linda Williams, Tina Cox, Josie Davidson to name but three. These ladies not only create fabulous art, they also conceptualize and design our Groovi art and grids.
So here’s a tricky question: do you have a favourite plate? Or collection? Is there one that really hits the spot for you? I know! Difficult to choose from so many. You won’t believe how many Groovi Plates we have designed since we launched the Groovi System in 2015! Staggering. In fact, let’s have a little bloggy candy, just for fun….
Have a guess. Have a guess how many Groovi plates, grids, plate mates, borders etc we’ve designed and put into production. Just write the number you think below. It’s just a bit of fun.
Guess the right number, and we’ll send you a £50 Gift Voucher. If nobody gets it, then we’ll send the person that comes closest to the exact number a £20 Gift Voucher. More than one correct answer, and we’ll draw one lucky winner out of a hat. Sound good? Have a go!! £50 well worth having!
So back to your favourite plate….this is mine: Our Butterfly Wreath.
It’s one of our very first plates. There are so many probably more fabulous designs, but this one is very dear to my heart because I guess it symbolises the birth of Groovi for me. It’s where it all began.
Back when we walked the brayer through acrylic paint to get arty backgrounds. Yep. Now we have all those lovely designer papers, but even then we were trying to marry parchment craft with clarity art!
Have you got this one? You can see how basic my parching skills were back at the start. I snipped round the scallop because I didn’t know how to picot cut…
Still pleased as punch with my finished card though. Five years on, and I am able to do work like this:
I tell you this not to show off, not to brag, no. no. no!! Simply to clarify how our Groovi system has helped me improve my parching. Gently, without stress, no tests, no judges – none of that! In fact, all that exam stuff flies in the face of everything I believe in! Instead, we have built up a wonderful, positive, kind, caring, sharing community on Groovi Worldwide. So many good people who will gladly help you on your parching journey – free of charge.
If you fancy dipping your toe in the Groovi pool and joining us, then there has never been a better time than a HALF PRICE SALE!
It’s on the Pergamano Website, not on the Clarity Website. They are two separate sites and therefore require two separate accounts. If you don‘t have an account over on Pergamano, we will be happy to help you. Grace is on Live Chat on BOTH websites if you need assistance.
Stay safe. Enjoy the Pergamano Party!!
Love and Hugs
