Beauty Grace & Strength. A step by step. ….

Hello! Enjoying the sunshine and the Olympics? We spent the day getting the Rugby Club venue ready for all the lovely Clarity crafters who are arriving for Day 1 of the Retreats tomorrow. It was all going so well! Breakfast for the lads to give them energy – Hahahaha. It always makes me laugh  how I can paint such an idyllic picture on here… We like charred, they cheered! “Let’s have a Bar-B in the garden and kick back this…

Shepherd’s Purse: Weed or Flower?

Shepherd’s Purse: Weed or Flower?

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! The suns shining in through the window, the bluebells are a-ringing in the woods, but I just wanted to share a quick step-by step with you  from yesterday’s TV show. It’s using the new Shepherd’s Purse stamps,  which Mandy drew for us. They are so lovely to use! Weed or flower? Apparently it’s a weed, but  one man’s weed is another man’s flower. Cut a 7″ x 7″ piece of Gelli Card back to 6″ x 6″…

A half-price Birdhouse in the Garden

Hi there! Thank you for popping in, and thank you also if you took the time to watch and support  the Claritystamp TV show this morning ! Wasn’t Dean great?! I nearly lost it with the squeaky table1 And Sam’s meat and 2 veg just about finished me off! Well, here’s the step by step I promised you yesterday,  using the super Birdhouse Stamp Set. We sold out so quickly, didn’t we?! But the strategy worked, and I was able…

Turquoise and Brown Deerscape.

Hello there. So glad you popped in. I have been pottering in the garden this morning, just tidying up. It’s very pleasant, isn’t it, to potter. It’s not something I have done much of,  but I’m thinking I may just make some more time for pottering. Anyway, here’s that step-by-step artwork I promised you yesterday. I used the Deerscape stamp. Let me show you the stamp set: We call it the Meadowdance Stamps Set, after the little children These are…

YouTube Tuesday – The Lone Cypress meets Cling Film

Howdi! Greetings from The Lone Cypress in California! (I wish!) We used to live really close to this beauty spot, in Carmel. I loved it there. But there we are, life happens, and we had to come back to Europe. I LOVED living in Northern California! Who wouldn’t?! Blue skies, the Pacific Ocean,  pelicans, sea lions. Flipflops and cut-off jeans were all I wore; proper hippy chick! So here is a little trip down Memory Lane,  using one of a…

Advent Day No. 21….A Festive Panel.

Hello there!Thanks for popping in again. I want to thank all of you who left a comment  on yesterday’s blogpost. It was a real turning point for me actually.  After all my protests about Panic Saturday, and  “I’m not stepping foot in a shop today”, late last night I went shopping after all! But not as you think.  Took somebody’s suggestion, looked up local food banks and their needs, went to the supermarket, filled the boot with – as Wanda pointed…

Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. Advent Day number 17 and Blue Blog Thursday all in one… Well, yesterday’s blog with the car and snow could have worked well for today, so you can always pop back to the snowdrift if you missed it. I think I would like to show you  a Gelli Plate step by step I prepped for the TV last time,  but then decided it would take too long to attempt on Live Telly!  I used…

Ever let the fancy roam….with a little Shaving Foam…

Hello there!Thanks for stopping by. Thursday’s blog is something blue,  so here’s a blue Shaving foam piece which I want to adapt… I’ve done a short You Tube Video on how to make cool shaving foam backgrounds. I’ll put the link at the end for you, just in case you’ve forgotten how it goes… But let’s carry on with this pic, shall we? I just had to use my lad again. I LOVE this stamp! Boy and Birds There’s not…

Time to make a scene.

Time to make a scene.

Hello there! Sorry I’m so late with this ‘ere blog! One minute I was at Waitrose at 10am, getting some groceries,  the next minute it gone 6, the boys are all fed, and it’s dark outside! Nonetheless, I have spent a pleasant hour or so here  in my little art heaven, just letting it take me away. I nearly spoiled my evening firing up a resentment about all the super professional, not very bloggy blogs  which are piling in nowadays. …
