Thanks for popping in. Well, the Clarity Birthday Celebrations are well underway at The Craft Store TV! I told you you’d love our new Doodle Dies! Aren’t they amazing ? Just so much scope ! I love the boxes with the patterns cut out of them…
Paul and I were questioning who came up with the concept. I had no idea, but I did know that Lucy at work had done all the graphics and processing, which was a mammoth task. Then he dug deep and showed me an email I sent him and Lucy last November..
I’m very lucky to have such a great team – and I know it. It’s a very long way from an idea and a sketch to a beautifully finished art product. Thanks to all involved.
Next stop on our Clarity Birthday Festival – another fabulous parchment idea. Pergamano did something similar in metal plates back in the day, but this has been lying dormant. So Linda Williams and our Jim – Head of Design at Clarity – have collaborated to bring you a new kind of Groovi plate: A Contour Plate.
This takes parchment art to a whole new level. The Groovi design grooves vary ever so slightly in width as you travel along in the groove. This enables you to create calligraphy lettering and wonderful swirls effortlessly. See the Alphabet here?
And then, by adding swirls and flourishes from these plates –
you can create fantastic elegant lettering. It really is very achievable. I’ll show you on the Craft Store at 6pm this evening. And wait till you see the art samples! Game changer alert!
Must crack on. One hour at a time…Paul’s Wowing you now, and I shall see you at 6 pm
Love and hugs
