Well I've got the sea and the beach, but NO SUN! Where's it gone? Ah well, I'll have to use my imagination.
Anyway, that is the title of the Crafty Individuals blog challenge and here are a couple of my ideas.
A tag swooshed with a Kaleidacolor Bouquet inkpad and then stencilled and stamped. The little row of beach huts (one of my favourite stamps) means it is freestanding:
While down at the beach I found this lovely stone which was just the right size for the sea birds on CI-349 - (well I hope it's sea birds I picked out - I know I'm okay with the puffin and the other looks as if it's wading in something!)
Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals were also demoing at the Extravaganza and brought along some new stamps that they'd rolled off the presses just in time!
Here's a tag I made using the lovely tulips stamp and Pebeo iridescent paints:
As I love tulips anyway ( they always remind me of Holland where I spent part of my childhood) this has to be one of my favourites! The paint chips are where I've peeled the dry paint off my palette - couldn't just throw it away!
Well, the Extravaganza is over and I had a great time, meeting lots of people and seeing all the demonstrators again. The marquees were lovely - very roomy - and I promise I behaved myself, even if I did get covered in paints!
So, thank you to all who came to the event and to everyone at the Craft Barn who looked after us all so well.
