Craft-along-a-Barbie – Let’s Go Dutch

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie, to remind you that the SHAC bus is headed for Holland this evening at 7pm! Well, virtually! I’m doing a Facebook LIVE/Youtube Craftalong , using some stamps and a Groovi plate that we drew together in the SHAC during lockdown. Remember? I LOVED these designs! Remember our carrot people?

We have created a page over on the Clarity website with everything that you will need to join in, but here’s a basic ingredients list:

  • Plain Parchment
  • Black Micron Pens
  • Black, Grey and white colouring pencils
  • Embossing tools
  • Embossing mat
  • Black Archival ink pad

What will we learn? Well, I want to show you

  • a few tricks n tips when stamping onto parchment.
  • how to use a Groovi plate in the usual way
  • how to use a Groovi plate as a pattern, to achieve black line art.

Lovely Frances Knott has created a couple of beautiful finished samples for us to enjoy, and work towards.

We’ll not be able to complete the art pieces during the craftalong, but we will certainly be covering all the varied and lovely techniques used.

Let’s put these designs through their paces:

I hope you can join in. And if you don’t want to craftalong, then why not just hang out with us? You’re bound to pick up a few ideas, and you’ll be in very good company. If you are busy, fear not! You can always catch up later.

Quote for the day?

The more you do, the better you get. And the better you get, the more you want to do!


Love always
