For the next Kit and Kaboodle class we're going to make a retro clock. I've gone for 50's sort of colours and was inspired by the designs of Angie Lewin:
I think I was supposed to be doing 70's retro but you know me, I'm easily sidetracked - anyway, I couldn't face all that orange and brown! You, however, will be able to work in whatever colours you choose.
So, if you fancy joining me, just follow the link above.
That's Crafty! are on Hochanda this Friday at 8.00am and 2.00pm. Don't forget to tune in as they've got some fantastic new products at fantastic prices.
They're taking the Rubber Dance stamps on the shows which work really well with their own and have also got some really lovely big die cuts, big tags (and I mean BIG), Tyvek sheets, new paints and more.
Here are a few sneak peeks of some of those products in action:
The parrot in the centre is done by image transfer using the Express Transfer Solution. I've then stamped around it and stitched it onto painted burlap (the sewing machine was playing up hence the even worse stitching than usual!):
Finish off with some upholstery braid and a stamped button:
Noooooo! Far too early, I know but I just wanted to show you this tile I made for the Flower Festival at church. I actually made four of them, based round hymns, but I think this was my favourite using all Crafty Individuals stamps:
The stamps all fit so perfectly and it's one of my favourite carols.
Crafty Individuals is back on Hochanda tomorrow with Lesley from Chocolate Baroque and, I think, Jean is going to be making her first appearance - good luck Jean.
Here's a peak at some of the stamp sets that will be on:
Not so long ago Crafty Individals were taken onto Hochanda by Lesley from Chocolate Baroque. They chose to use some of my favourite Crafty Individuals stamps - trees!
Here are a few of the samples I made:
These are all stamped on glossy card to give a really crisp effect.
Here are a couple more of the projects I made for That's Crafty! with their 8x8 journal pages - I love this size, suits me just fine.
Don't you just love that leaning man? I've gone all rusty for this one, using some of the new stencils (all sizes) and digging into my DIY stash:
This one's totally different again - that's why I like using them as separate pages. I've tried out the Pentart Iron Paste for the little flowers in the background and used the 8x8 clock stencil to make some hills, then the floral stencil for the yellow sun:
