Hello everyone.

I haven’t been able to post recently. A lot has been happening. Apart from the preparations for the stamping workshop, I’ve been re-organizing my workshop/ studio. A major re-shuffle, a paint job and a couple of weeks’ vacation has meant a lot of work getting things back to where some creative activity can take place.

I’m adding a lot of new stuff to the paper craft blanks including MDF tiles in different sizes, a whole range of new cardstock die-cuts and new lower priced card blanks. I have been working on developing some tools locally. I’m glad to tell you that the distress ink blending tool is ready. I haven’t been able to post it yet. The tool is identical to the one from Rangers. A pack of the tool and 2 pieces of Tim Holtz blending foam is going to be Rs. 500.

Well I’ll try and post the new supplies asap. Take care.

Hello everyone,

I have been a stamp addict for the last 13 years; there are periods of remission but few and far between. There is no known cure that I know of. So I do what stamp addicts do; buying stamps, more stamps and more stamps. This also means I have a load of stamps i haven’t actually used yet.

As you might know i’m running a stamping workshop next month so I am going through my stamp collection. Yesterday I decide to do something with a set of stamps by Stampington ‘The Unruly Girls Club’ and got to work.

  

  

The images are small; mostly 2 x 2 inch. I used 3 x 3 inch pieces of heavy Watercolor paper. Did the background with distress inks and  stamped the images with Ranger Archival Jet black ink. Then I used acrylics and water soluble crayons to color in the girls. Used perfect pearls and some glitter (very sparingly) accents on different images.  Added some more detail and a stamped border around the edges.

My favorite is the blue one. Which is yours?

Burning the midnight oil has never been my forte; it always leaves me with a migraine. But the latest episode also left me with a mixed media canvas that I think is really nice. Sharing the pics with you and request your candid comments.

The background is all paint and ink and stamping and more ink and spray and stenciling etc. I sketched the cake and cut the different components out of some Webster’s Pages paper. The banners were stamped on paper too.

Hello everyone.

There has been some confusion as to the dates of the workshop. After hearing from a number of you on this issue I have changed the dates to early November and these are final. I know this will not be ideal for some of you and this sadden me.

The other issue raised by many of you is the option of attending part of the workshop. While I feel that Day 1 and Day 2 are very important, as I want you to take something useful from this workshop, I have worked out some options.
