A stitch in time

Good evening all and thanks for popping in.

Well after some sun this afternoon it is raining here again, so more wet dogs...

I have been busy all day getting some workshop prep done , I really don't know where the time has gone.

Tomorrow I must get to grips with my samples and demos for the Clarity Open days in Kent next week...are you coming? I am really looking forwards to catching up so many people.

Tonight I am going to give you a quick photo tutorial of one of my recent samples. This is from a recent show on Hochanda with Rosie...

I started by making my shrink plastic tag

Look how it shrinks

Next I did the stamping

Then added some colour using spectrum Noir pencils, plus some charcoal shading

On separate card , I stamped , coloured, and cut out three buttons. Then added some clear embossing powder...

Some matting and layering and a little faux material swatch, and the design is complete

You're sew special ......and you are...

Believe in yourself....

A lovely thought to leave you with

Much love and hugs

Jo. xxxx
