Hi Everyone!

Well… I am just back home this evening after having spent a lovely day down at Indigoblu HQ in Retford, they had an Open Day with loads of demonstrations, lots of  lovely products to buy in their shop, plus plenty of Tea and Cake!

  • Clare Horner was Demonstrating Art Journalling and Book Binding
  • Nikki Killinger was Demonstrating Ice Resin
  • Jenny Marples was Demonstrating Cardmaking
  • Kay Halliwell-Sutton who is the owner of Indigoblu was making fabulous projects
  • Nicki Marell was demoing how to crochet

I had a wonderful day, there was a great attendance and it was also great too see many of my fellow demo teamies there too supporting the day :-)

Here are a few pictures of the day…

Altered Indigoblu Mannequin

mannequin 1

Hellooooo……

It has been a while since my last blog post, too long, i think, but I have been busy :-)

Today I have an altered Indigoblu mannequin /dressform to share with you…. this will be coming along to all the Indigoblu demonstrations I will be doing in the coming months.

mannequin 2

There is a cool technique used on the mannequin, whereby you stamp tissue in the ink and stamps of your choice, then apply it to the mannequin with slap it on matte..

mannequin 4

 

I have also used the large butterfly stamp with megaflake stamped onto vellum twice and attached them back to back to give it wings that look good from both sides..

mannequin 3

 

I also added various trims and embelishments from my wee craft shed to finish her off..

mannequin 6

I hope you like today’s project, now I have tackled doing one, I quite fancy making more :-)

There will be a full supply list at the bottom of this post if you fancy having a go at making one for yourself :-)

Jelli Prints and Fuzzy Flowers

Hello everyone..

An early start for me in my wee shed today and as a result this blog post will be a rather long one with lots of pictures.

I busted out my new Jelli Plate, who knew that they would be so much fun!

a) I get to use up some of the mountains of paper that I have been hoarding for the last 7 years

b) I get to use up some of the bottles of acrylic paint I have accumulated

c) I get to make cool new backgounds for my cards

First of all I will share the new jelli prints that I made, then I will show the cards I made after I was done :-)

Grab a cuppa, it’s a long’un :-)
