Wonderful Weekend

Splendiferous is how I would describe my weekend and not only because it was another glorious couple of days.

But here is somebody that doesn't like mornings, Mischievous Malcom from the Dylusions stamp from Ranger.

The new stamps are brilliant, Dyan has designed them so you can mix them up and use different heads on different bodies to make your own original layout.
The background for the card is the New Sizzix Texture Fade & Trades embossing folder Blueprint & Gears set by Tim Holtz. I have coloured the card with Scattered straw Distress Ink on the background then Peeled Paint on the raised areas. The quote is from the Say it how it is stamp.

Here are a couple of pages I created in my Dylusions Journal. The screaming baby has Ruby Rainbows Body and the glass case is from the Monster Mash stamp all coloured with Dylusions Inks.

Just having fun stamping spraying and generally getting messy.

We have had in more brilliant stock at the shop. Poor Jamie is spending all his time trying to get the new products onto the internet, that's the great thing about having a shop there's more space to fill. But at this rate we will be wanting bigger premises.

I just had to have a set of the Dr Ph. Martin's Bombay Inks. You can buy them individually but I wanted them all. You can create brilliant backgrounds, paint with them and of course you can do calligraphy. There's many more uses but that's all I have had time for.

The flowers are from Paper Artsy's Eclectica 03 range Lin Brown 01, and the leaves from Dylusions Around the edge stamp and painted with Golden Cobalt Teal.

Same idea paint the background with the Dr P.H.Martins Inks in square's or waves, the picture below has been covered with Paper Artsy Snowflake paint around the leaves I drew. The bubbles are from the JOFY 09 stamp. We have the Dr P.H. Martin Inks in stock now at the shop, they will be online as soon as Jamies added all the new Golden items ;)

On Saturday I attended a Textile Workshop at the Old Loom Shop in Cromford Mill.

It was run by the lovely Mary Macdonald where we learnt Batik, Felt and Applique. I wanted to learn some different crafts, but one's that could be used in conjunction with what I already do.

So here are a few photo's of the starting points. Hopefully these are the beginnings of a journal cover, where there will lots of different layers and embellishments.




This is quite scary when you have to cut through two layers of calico to reveal the bottom layer.

That was my weekend hope you had a enjoyable time as well.
