Turn up the Heat...

Good afternoon and thanks for dropping in on a Sunday...a day of rest.....and what a lovely day too....no rain....no jobs ( well almost...washing and ironing done ) time to walk in the garden and enjoy the wonderful colours.

Yesterday it was up and out early as it was Clarity Cumbria...and thankfully the weather was much better than it had been the day before..

We focused on Stencils...as you know I do love Clarity Stencils..

So we used them to add Gruge Paste to a Thermometer House...then added embellishments, Black Gesso and Inka Gold Paints....oh my ....here are the results....the ladies really did excell themselves...

They are all stunning....don't you agree?

Whilst we were waiting for the GP to dry we decorated some tags...

And ate some cake,,,( looking good Barbara and Sheila)

We also had a visit from our youngest Clarity Crafter....Elizabeth...

After lunch we made some cards...

And ate more cake!!!! Thanks Lisa for sneakily taking this....it is o.k. Though because it was calorie free cake....oh no sorry .....I mean Gluten Free cake.....

Have you seen this gorgeous Stencil..? .it is a real hidden treasure...you may have missed it....it is the leafy strip stencil.... http://www.claritystamp.co.uk/Clarity-Stencils/15271-/A5-Leafy-Strip-Stencil

So quick and easy to just add colour through it...

Add some more colour to the edges.

A wee Fairy...

And such a lovely result...even better you get the inner bit of the stencil too....great for using with sprays, Gelli plate etc.

The little white dots are the Fresco paint...a tip from Barbara's blog....and such a useful one too..thanks Barb....

I have to say it was another wonderful day...and I count my blessings that I am able to spend so much time with such lovely crafters who like me...love to make things....and love to eat cake.....

On that note I will go and put the kettle on,

Thanks for popping in , enjoy your evening...

Love and hugs,

Jo. xxxx
