Hi everyone and first an apology for having been MIA again. Prep and sample making seems to be taking over my life right now. I've been beavering away getting articles written and getting ready for a busy few weekends ahead demoing at garden centres across the Midlands. And then of course there's tomorrow... it's the Open Day at IndigoBlu HQ where Kay, Clare, Nikki and myself will be in action with stamps, inks, paints and so much more. I know a few friends have already arranged to be there and it would be great to see you too! I'll be taking along the project we'll be doing at my inaugural IB workshop at the end of September (details on my sidebar) so you'll get a chance for a sneaky peek at what's in store.
Of course I can't post just that so by way of a reminder of our Indian Summer challenge over at the IndigoBlu Challenge blog right now here's a little something to get you in the mood (for creating of course!)
This card involved the use of gesso, inks, stencilling, a spot of paint and of course some stamping. I've used the 'Under the Sea' A5 stamp set, the 'Regal' stencil, my all time favourite Gee-Sso Good! white gesso, and the English Cottage Artist's Acrylic Paints. You'll need some close ups, so...
I intend to get back on top of commenting and make some time to see all your wonderful creations on Monday, and in the meantime if you haven't put your name in the hat for one of my Tim Holtz inspired ATCs yet make sure you leave a comment HERE. Remember, I'll be drawing the names of four lucky winners on Thursday at the end of A Vintage Journey's current ATC challenge.
Time waits for no crafter, so for now take care of yourselves and I'll hopefully see you soon.
