NEARLY TIME...

To rest..... As I've mentioned before it's been a whirlwind of events since closing the shop, teaching in the States, doing our 3rd Annual Retreat and now getting ready and prepping for the NEC. I'll be there teaching for WOW Embossing Powders next week, I love this event it's so much fun, in fact I love every event I do, after all life is about having fun and I feel very blessed.
Here's a couple of samples I've made for WOW, the first was sooooo very relaxing, I just took a canvas board 8" X 8" and sketched out a flower, then filled in with embossing power, it gives a gorgeous sparkly textured look and let's face it, you can do whatever you sketch, so think of new home, wedding day etc....would make a gorgeous gift.
I used Long Island Teal, Atlantic Seaspray, Opaque Bright White and Silent Night


Then I got really excited as I 'had' to open these dies and use with the powders and the Pick and Mix Stamp Set. The powders I've used are Daytona Sands and Long Island Teal, simply stunning together !!!



Have you seen the newest Limited Edition Paint set from PaperArtsy ? NO, I hear you cry, why, where have you been....it's absolutely gorgeous and we've only got a couple left of the shelf 


For those of you visiting the NEC next week, I'll see you there, and if you want to do one of the classes, get there early as they book up very fast !!!
