Thanks for popping in. You know Linda Williams, don’t you? The super talented Welsh Parchment artist? My best friend too, as it happens. To know her is to love her. And I certainly do love her. Quite aside from being a uniquely creative individual, and having a wonderful art style of her own, she really is a fabulous woman. And this evening we are very proud to be launching a brand new Groovi collection of her art. Read on…
It all started with this beautiful piece of artwork that Linda created for the birth of her grandaughter Kaitlynn. Look closely; each of the elements has been expertly picot cut and assembled to create this superb keepsake.
Now Linda has worked her magic, and transferred these designs into Groovi, to allow you to recreate her magical artwork – and so much more.
This evening at 6pm, my other great friend Paul Church will be launching the One Day Special on the Craft Store (Hochanda.com). So he will be presenting Linda’s beautifully laid out wardrobe designs – we think you’ll be impressed.
At 6pm Paul will show how to create different wardrobe fronts and attach them to the wardrobe blank as well as showing how they can be used to create normal cards. The wardrobes have been designed so that you can leave the design on an A5 piece of parchment, picot cut them or use normal scissors. Note the little stands that dear Dave has been making. Oh. And he has been making the shaped wardrobe cards complete with scored doors too! They’re included in the introductory bundle this evening.
At 8pm Paul will show how to create the inside of the wardrobe with personalisation for that special event so that you can finish building the wardrobe or turn the inside into a card. There are so many fabulous design elements on the 4 plates!
Tomorrow morning, at 8am, Paul will show how the elements from the plates can be used to create beautiful pictures using our stampboard frames and panels with a great tip from Linda on how to use the Perga Glue without it showing through!
At 12 noon tomorrow – stock permitting – Paul will take the elements to build a washing line with hints and tips on composition, white work and colouring. What a delightful card this is, designed by clever Sheila Bradley.
Then at 4pm to finish off – a recap of the previous hours with a quick and easy last minute card designed by lovely Carole Panksztelo
The One Day Special contains 4 A4 Groovi Plates, 20 Sheets A4 Parchment (Pink, Light Pink, Sky Blue & Midnight Blue) with 3 complete Wardrobe Blanks & Stands to get you going
My brother Steve has been making these large, beautiful, intricate plates for weeks. Dave has been cutting out the shapes and stands, Linda has been preparing the art for the show, the Design team have been hard at work, making art to inspire you, and Paul has been getting ready-set-go! for the launch tonight. Teamwork makes the dream work, as they say.
Great launch. Great introductory launch price. Enjoy!
