Hi everyone and welcome! So here we are at the end of August already with the days and weeks whizzing by. Thank you to everyone who tuned in and snapped up the bargains on my sell out shows for Hochanda last Saturday. This weekend sees the launch of some brand new stamps and mixed media papers from IndigoBlu, with Kay Halliwell-Sutton appearing on our screens tomorrow at 2pm and 5pm. Behind the scenes the team have been creating lots of fabulous samples to inspire and delight you and I'm sharing one here today as an 'appetiser' for what's to come...
Altering this little black sketchbook was so easy using the new Steampunkesque mixed media papers, all of which coordinate perfectly with the A5 Steampunkesque stamp set. I carefully burned the edges of the paper before dry brushing over with white gesso to create an aged look before adding them to the front, back and spine of the book.
Adding layers of lace is such a quick and effective way of including texture and interest to projects, especially if you add a dash of gesso to highlight the patterns. The blue 'scrap' is an example of what can be done with black stamping card, FlitterGlu, one of the Teeny Backgrounds and the new Luscious pigment powders. Finally the Steampunkesque flying man has been stamped onto a base of Goldfinger acrylic paint and the sentiment added below him (I love the quirky, humorous words Kay has included in this set!) In case you're wondering, the little key is a self-moulded one, transformed with coordinating acrylic paint to give it some age.
Make sure you tune in to Kay's shows this weekend to see more Steampunkesque creations from the team.
I'll be out and about and back on your screens in the coming weeks (see the sidebar for more details) and there are lots of scheduled DT posts to come so stay tuned! Thank you for joining me today. Whatever you're up to this weekend have a great one and take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
