Hi there thanks for dropping by
Oh my I am very busy lol I had a demo day for crafters companion on Saturday then then then then
I WENT TO THE TRADE SHOW!!
oh it was great I went with the girls from Craft range at Burnley so we had a proper road trip leaving at 6am on Sunday morning - which meant I got up at 4.30 am and we didn't get to bed until after one the next morning !!!!! Up again at 7 on Monday to do it all again.
We walked in on Sunday and while I was waiting to deposit my coat the lovely Karen Clare was there - so that was a really lovely way to start the visit.
First stop just had to be Clarity - oh my the stand was very impressive and professional .
There are some fantastic things on the horizon but I am not saying !!!
I also got to see Tim Holtz in action - I would have liked to watch longer but I was booked on a class.
Oh well maybe another time eh!
Now for the real reason for this post
Here is one of my samples from Maria's last show.
Isn't this flower fab?
fab set of plates
I started with the central flower then built the scallop frames around it. I used the flower heads in the border like we would do with a stamp hanging some off the edge
After that I put the netting in place then using a grid and a piercing tool added holes all around the border in the blank spaces .
Thanks for stopping by - I will try and blog all my samples in between everything else.
Demo day this Saturday
