New Stamps and Stuff!

Hi everyone,
Well back from my weekend at the Papeterie in Aberdeen where both myself and Lindsay Mason were demoing and running workshops so a quick thank you to Charlotte and all the staff for looking after us,  also a big thank you to everyone attending the workshops, what a lovely bunch and so well behaved!! :)
I spent the day yesterday with my phone switched off putting the finishing touches to my new stamp designs which will hopefully be launched at the Craft Hobby & Stitch International Show (Trade) in february 2012.

I will be at the Craft Barn in Lingfield this coming weekend demoing on Saturday and holding an Altered reversible bisque clock workshop on Sunday using a new to the "Craft Barn" Decoart acrylic paint and technique…exciting!  I am hoping this yucky cold I have has cleared up before then as it's not nice… and obviously as you all well know, us men suffer far worse when it comes to colds ;)

Here is a peak at what delegates are going to make this weekend.
Clock Face Side One
This side is quite a simple faux chipped enamel technique to enable delegates to understand how the new paint behaves.
Clock Face Side Two
On the reverse we will be using one of my favourite Decoart products - Modeling Paste along with the new paints and technique.

Before I go I just wanted to apologise to everyone booked in for the next Evil Elixir Mixer online course for not sending the information on the two secret products yet, the reason for this is  that they are currently on their way from the states and not yet in stock. I am checking this everyday and will send you the info as soon as they are here. we do still have 39 days left until launch and that means still 30 days in which you can book on. here is a link to the workshop information .

I am currently working hard on the promised new online workshop for early next year where I am going to share lots of fantastic techniques most of which I do not use on day workshops because of the time limits.
I have also set up a new blog just for the online workshops, I will post all details there when I have it finished.
Bye for now,
