Brayering Workshop


Good Morning all

Today I am playing with the Martha Stewart Circle Punch – what a great little system this is.

But the real reason I am posting today is to show you all the fabulous cards that Linda will be making on her next workshop with us. If you would like to secure a place please just give us a ring on Tel…01282 833 091. Linda’s workshops have become a firm favourite for our customers this year, I love it when someone tries brayering for the first time and is very sceptical as to whether they can achieve such designs starting with a blank canvas and only having a brayer and inks to complete their finished piece. No one has ever been disappointed with what they produce with Linda’s expert tuition and have gone on to master the art of brayering.

Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday
Back Soon
Happy Crafting!

Have You Time for a Catch Up?


Good morning crafters,
Sorry I have been a bit lax keeping you up to date so here goes………..
The results of my demonstration dilemma, I used alcohol inks and Frantage embossing powders, tinsel and flakes on both the heart and the paper beads and made them into two separate necklaces.

We went to a farm called The Barn to see the musical Chaps, the Barn in which the musical was staged had quilts hung on all the walls.

Craft Event Part 6


Good Afternoon

Seen as it is our next Grand Craft Event this Saturday, I thought that I better finish part 6 the final part from the last craft event we had.

Linda Page demonstrated for us and it was a fantastic demonstration, Linda showed us all how to use pan pastels (oh and mentioning pan pastels we have just taken delivery of the BRAND NEW METALLIC Pan Pastels). Linda also demonstrated brayering, it was one of the most interesting demonstrations that I have seen. Linda very cleverly did two cards exactly the same using pan pastels on one and ink with brayer on the other – it was great to see the same thing done but with two different mediums. Both were fantastic and a few of the customers that were not confident with inks and brayer found they could work well with the pan pastels.
Cant wait to see what Linda will demonstrate this Saturday, I am sure she will have a brayer somewhere to hand and will have some amazing samples to show us all.

Hope your all having a great day
Back Soon

I expect all the ladies on the workshop will be bagging some bargains along with stocking up on their brayering essentials such as speedball brayers, splodge mats and Adirondack Dye Ink Pads.
TIP OF THE DAY:- if you struggle to remember which Adirondack ink pads to use with your brayer, either Dye ink pads (in the cream box) or Pigment ink pads (in the black box) – remember “BBC – Boycott Black, Certainly Cream”.
I’m sure that Janet will let you know what new goodies are being added to THE SALE today.
