Thanks for popping in. Those of you who join me in the SHAC Shack will recognise our feathered friends on TV tomorrow!
I am launching a smashing collection of beautiful birds, all illustrated by our friend, Mel Turner. You will recognise them all, except perhaps the moorhens?
And I don’t think we’ve done the geese in the SHAC either yet. Although they are pretty fabulous. I remember us doing an arty canvas at a summer retreat once. Those were the days! Let me go dig it out!
Hahahahaha! I have just remembered. We stamped onto tissue, then painted the tissue with white acrylic on the back. The idea was to wait for the white paint to dry, then colour the geese in on the front, then stick them onto double-sided adhesive, then cut them out, then stick them on our painty background canvas.
It was all going so well, until a gust of wind blew all the geese off the tables and their legs got stuck together with the wet white paint – and it was hilarious watching the ladies (and Ken!) hopping about trying to unstick their geese. Right giggle.
Of course! We Shackers coloured many of them in during our feathered friend Postcard Sessions!
One particularly lovely little twist tomorrow is the miniature set. We reduced them by 50% and flipped them. So lovely to use !!! I have a feeling these will fly!
And don‘t forget those bookmarks! If you like your colouring you’ll love these. Great gifts and stocking fillers.
Well, after a heads down and crack on morning, I’m pretty much set for the 2-4 TV show on the Craft Store.com tomorrow, so I hope you can join me! Two hours of tricks and tips, with some very beautiful stamps and stencils.
I love these images. These really are our Clarity Classics.
Love and Hugs
