It's been a while so time to catch up and share what I have been up to and what I have in store the next few weeks.
Today I am going to be running a Decoart mixed media workshop at Barjan b Crafts in Leicester so really looking forward to that and on Sunday I will be travelling up to a new venue for me, The Craft Den in South Yorkshire to hold another workshop, by my calculations that's 554 miles driving this weekend so why I am writing this post at 3am this morning I have no idea lol!
I am flying out to the US in just over a week for 11 days to visit Decoart in Stanford Kentucky and boy am I excited, can't wait to meet everyone and take a look around.
I fly into Detroit first which is approx 8 hrs, then fly from Detroit to Lexington Blue Grass airport in Kentucky, luckily for me flying tends to send me asleep and to be honest I am normally catching Z's before the flight even takes off!
I am determined to post regular to facebook on my visit so I promise to keep you all updated.
Ok before I continue it's confession time.... I know some of you are aware of my past and my involvement with glitter, for those of you unaware here goes!
I used to own a creative studio that also held Children's birthday parties, one of the party options were Glitz parties where children would make bath bombs, glitter body gels and so on, needless to say cosmetic glitter was involved and that stuff gets everywhere, I eventually earned the name of Twinkle in the local drinking hole because I was always covered in the stuff.
Now my housemate at the time was the main instigator of this nickname and delighted in calling me it, my revenge was imminent! I secretly poured half a bottle of Decoart's very fine sprinkle-on glitter Glamour dust into his shampoo and mixed this thoroughly, lets just say...... he twinkled for weeks lol! (sorry Clive) :)
4x4" white tile
6x6" white tile using just the glass stains and an Americana Gold writer.
Drizzling the glass stains looks very cool.
Next up is Decoart So Soft fabric paint Painted onto a tshirt using a brush, stamped and painted through stencils! They are soft, like fabric dyes, but do not require the addition of a medium or heat setting.
