Ready for Clarity in Catterick...

Good evening all, so sorry that I haven't been around for the last few days.

I have had some magazine samples to make, housework to do, and preparations to make for this weekends open days in Catterick..I am really looking forward to them....the ones in Kent were amazing.....

It is so good to spend time with friend and the Clarity family....and to catch up with Barbara and Dave....oh such a lovely couple and so hard working...I really am blessed to be part of the team.....

Unfortunately my hand is still playing up, no results yet from the x-Ray, but being a radiographer I know how long these things can take...I will just make up for being slow demonstrating by talking a lot......and yes Mum at this point I can hear you say...." That's why we knicknamed you Chatterbox as a child!!!"

I have been playing with Grunge Paste, my friend Sam showed me how to use it and I have been playing ever since with various ways of colouring it once is one of my samples ....

I started by colouring the card with Adirondack inks, using my Stencil brushes and some Clarity Stencils.

Next I added the Japanese Reeds Stencil and dragged some G.P. Through...then left it to dry.

Once dry, I replaced the stencil and added colour using Adirondack inks and a make up sponge.

I stamped some images from the Remountable bugs set, coloured them, cut them out and attached them.

Some Bakers Twine, Glossy Accents and a Word from the word chains....and all done.

I do hope that you like this. Thanks for looking in today....I will show you more ways of adding colour next week...

I am setting off early tomorrow,...fingers crossed for a good journey.....have a good weekend all and if you can't make it to Catterick have a look at the web site for all your Clarity needs.

Much love,

Jo. X
