Thanks for popping in.
Been clearing a path through my Craft studio in readiness for our Craftalong this evening. What a mess!! So much gear!! And all of it not where it shoud be! So I’ve been walking miles up here, putting it back where it belongs! Blimey! You don’t realise how prolific you are until you stop and take stock of what you’ve been up to in the past few months!
Then I prepared the Craftalong, got the gear out again and made a little plan for us. I had to put it all away to be able to find it again first! What a caper.
Anyway, all ready now. I think it will be enjoyable. I’ve added a third little project to the evening, so we’ll have to get a wriggle on !
The step by step below isn’t one of our craft projects this evening, but it does use one element of the 5-part stencil we’re working with, and is a little tribute to The Grunge. All the projects this evening are nice and clean and tidy, so this is just an example of not so clean and tidy using the same design. I do like the versatility that stencils offer.
You cover the stencil element with texture paste and simple lay it down randomly on a piece of 8×8 inch black card. Reload and go again. Messy but fun. Dries quite fast too.
Now me, I like the whole piece just as it comes. Feels good too.
But the cardmaker in me knows there’s a really neat set of notelets or smaller cards in there too…
- Chop the large piece up into 4 equal quarters. 4×4 inches. That’s 4 cards.
- Lay them up on 5×5 inch white card blanks.
- Pick one and chop it up randomly. Tile it. If you can, include a sliver tile, just bif enough to take a message.
- Attach the pieces to the white card with our Clarity Tape runner
- Replace the sliver tile with a cool Clarity Sticker. DONE
Now enjoy doing the other three. This is my kind of speed! No skill required here either.
So now I’ve had my messy fix, let go and let the process do its thing, I shall look forward to 7pm Facebook LIVE or Claritystamp Youtube.
Love and hugs
