Just thought I'd do a quick share of our afternoon with Mr Holtz.
It certainly was a play, play, play kinda day, as usual he showed us some great techniques, that you think "now, why didn't I think of that"!!! And there's some REALLY exciting NEW product coming your way.
We made three rather gorgeous canvases (sorry forgot to get a picci, but they'll be in the shop to see)

Here's a little sneak of Paula working away on one of them, my favourite actually !!!
(apologies, but I don't know how or even if I can turn the photo the right way up on this iPad)!! So you'll just have to turn yours heads LOL !!
Dy Reavley taught a class as well, needless to say it was bursting with colour and just gorgeous, she's one very talented lady.
I've never known Nina so quiet, the concentration was immense at some points

We used the Claudine Hellmuth Studio paints, that we have in the shop and just had such fun getting our fingers dirty!!
We've already come up with our own idea on a keep an eye out for the newsletter.

It's only now that I'm sitting here at 5am thinking why didn't I take more piccis, and yes I could get up and get the camera out, but I really don't think Nina would appreciate the artistic licence in that!!!
But I do have one last picci from the day....and this one's for you Nicky....

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
