Peace & Love – and a little Bling!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Getting set for the Clarity Mixed Media TV Shows on HOCHANDA at 9am and 1pm on Friday, and thought I’d kill 2 birds with one stone, so to speak, and showcase the beautiful Christmas Window stamps that Paul is showcasing this evening at 6pm on HOCHANDA! How about a photo step by step… The first thing to note is that our Stampboard shapes cut like butter. Craft knife, scissors, paper trimmer – you decide!…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Here’s a little poppet from the Flower Collection for you called Poppy, framed with the frame from our SHAC-Shack Kite set… Picked a page with Grace at the top…. Can we clean up the face and get rid of the print? Yep. White eraser pencil. Colour in, add a drop shadow – then tear up!! Really?? Mmmm. Maybe overcooked it a bit with the tearing! Keeps going undeterred…patches it up a little….mounts it on…

It will be OK

It will be OK

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Just a quick little message from me to you, using one of Tina’s Mandalas Stamps on a scrap of Stencil card with black Archival ink and a dash of yellow. The work is in the detail of the stamp. I don’t have to do much else…. The hardest thing was to make the image imperfect around the edges, make it fade away. The easiest way I found was to mount the mandala stamp on…

It’s a GRAY Day

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. It’s GRAY DAY today. The colour GRAY that is. Or Grey – whichever works for you! Was clearing away the Mandala demos in the SHAC in readiness for next weeks Birthday Marathon on HOCHANDA, and got caught in a shady spot… You know when you should be doing one thing, but the hands just start doing something else? Well, I was supposed to be filing all the arty bits away for a rainy day,…

Hi there. Thanks for popping in! And Thank you so much for joining yesterday in the 100 Hours SHAC Celebrations! Recently in the SHAC-Shack we ventured up to the Water colour end of the Pergaliner pencil box, right?

Read the small print!

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Yesterday on HOCHANDA TV, Paul and I were showcasing those 2-way Overlay Christmas Baubles of ours. They are so easy to use – and you can make many cards quickly too, which isn’t always strictly necessary. But if you are making cards to sell, or cards for charity – or you have a HUGE family – then you can’t be spending days on one card, now can you?! Here are a couple of examples…
