I think I’m turning Japanese – I really think so!

Hi there

Thanks for popping in. All set for tomorrow’s Create & Craft TV afternoon, 3-5pm? Got the telly set to record if you’re going out? Well, I’ll be there in my Sunday best, with plenty of demos and lots of lovely art samples from the design team too. What’s being showcased? Well, we’re turning Japanese again. I just LOVE all things Japanese! Just spent a happy afternoon in our print room, drawing and pulling prints – and it all has a Japanese flavour! This time on telly, we’ve gone back in time to a Geisha I drew years ago. She hasn’t aged at all – which is more than I say say for this old Geisha!

Also available in A5sq Groovi Plates

I’ll also be using some of these wonderful flowers, some drawn by Tina Cox, some drawn by myself. I think these also work beautifully with the Japanese symbols and images, don’t you?

Also making an appearance on the counter – The stampset (Barb’s Loving Heart A5 Stamp Set with A6 Mask and ever so useful alphabet). This is what I shall be using in the FREE Craft Along on Friday 19th April at 7pm on our Claritystamp YouTube and Facebook pages. Be sure to get yours asap, so you can take full advantage of the evening tutorial.

How about some inspiration from the Design Team?

Wow! What a gallery, eh? I look forward to spending a couple of hours with you tomorrow.

Love always

  5. Stunning gallery. I will record the show this afternoon as I like to go back to the demos again.
    Received my club pack yesterday, the lamp stand looks good and it will be interesting to see it finished.
    Have a safe journey today.

  6. Morning Barb, all set to record, and WOW what an amazing gallery of beautiful and inspiring artwork. Will hopefully get to watch the shows later. I may just listen to my inner voice telling me I need this stamp set, as I have some of the others. Safe travels. Bx

  9. Wow, fantastic samples. I bought these stamps some years ago, but think they are smaller than the newer ones. Don’t have the building so may be tempted. Recorder all set.
