I love Stencils

Good evening all, thanks for popping in...

I have just got home after a fabulous day at Grosvenor House papers in Kendal.

We had a day of using stencils, you see I love stencils , and there are so many different techniques that you can do with them, from embossing, to using grunge paste, spritzing through them, using them with the Groovi plates and lots more.

We concentrated on using inks,

The sunshine stencil used with two colours of ink and a bit of a twist.

Then some ink blending through the leaf wreath stencil.

After a wonderful lunch, we made a Christmas card....well it is the first of December...

Followed by another one, well I do have to make a start on

It was great to meet a couple of new ladies and I am looking forward to seeing you all agin next year...the dates are out for the first six months of 2017 ...just book in with Jane at Grosvenor..

I am off now to catch up on some tv with Karl....I have a magazine commission to finish tomorrow, and then I am hoping to have some family time at the weekend.

Do remember that our boss lady, Barbara is on Hochanda on Sunday and Monday.

You really don't want to miss the shows....

Take care all.

Much love and hugs

Jo. xxxx
