For the final 2 hours of our 30th Birthday Celebrations on Create & Craft 3-5 pm, here’s something a little special, created by yours truly.
Three brand new, Bijou, 2-Way Overlay Linocut Panel stamp sets :
We have also turned the original floral collection into bijou versions. Simply perfect size.
And to top it off, how about an A4 Sampler Set? I blimming love this !!!!!!! A little back story. So I come into work, and Jazz is grinning at me. Whenever she’s come up with something new, she always greets me with, “I’ve had a play”. Well. (Similarly, I go to her and Lisa, and say, “I’ve had an idea!” . Anyway, when she showed me these fantastic sampler stamps, clipped and cropped and chopped from my original lino cuts – well, I was more than excited. THESE are exquisite! Proper Brighton Gift Shop vibe!! So much playtime here!
We have created a super duper bundle for those of you who like to collect everything!
Here is some arty inspiration from the design team
I picked Linocut artstamps to showcase this weekend, because it represents yet another relatively new art form, which I have developed by learning how to cut my own designs out of lino and how to make printing plates. We never stop learning, do we. Prints pulled from lino cuts are my cup of tea, my kind of art. Like paper cuts, lino cuts have always appealed to me. And in the famous words of our dear friend Elizabeth
The more you do, the better you get. And the better you get, the more you want to do!
Before I sign off for a while, I do want to say a huge thank you to dear Dave and of course, Paul, who will be taking over in my absence. He and Dave are always beavering away in the background, ensuring things run smoothly. Wouldn’t want to do it without them.
And finally, thank you to YOU, our loyal customers and friends. What a Clarity community! There’s nothing quite like it, is there. Some of us have been friends since the 90’s! Haven’t we Ken!! I think the SHAC really galvanised what was already a strong bond between Clarity folks. Yes. It’s the Clarity Community that underpins everything really. I mean, let’s face it. The SHAC would be pretty fruitless without you! As would CLARITY!!! So thank you.
See you soon!
