I absolutely adore what Gillian has created.

The weather is back to normal I see, but never mind its an ideal day to stay in and craft. Every cloud has a silver lining!
I had a wonderful day here at Craftrange on Saturday. I was given the challenge of demonstrating Spellbinders. Where to start – with the Media Mixage of course! My inspiration was bubbling over from all the tips and ideas that I gained from Ken Oliver when he visited our store recently.
I started by cutting the Spellbinder foil with a Spellbinder die and as one side of the foil is coloured and the reverse silver, I coloured the silver side with Adirondack Alcohol inks. When the ink was dry I embossed the shape in a Sue Wilson Embossing Folder.I then used a sanding block to remove the colour and go back to the silver. My first dilemma was which side to use, the embossed or debossed side. I loved them both.
Next I used a Frantage Encrusted Jewel Kit to create four layers to fit inside the Spellbinder Bezel. I used the Teal Colour Fragments, Teal Mica Flakes, Aged Teal Embossing Powder, Sky Blue Embossing Powder and Detail Capri Embossing Powder. Sounds lush doesn’t it?
Before filling the bezel with Ice Resin I cut the back off a Large Curved Petal Flower Charm and placed that along with a diamante on top of the layers and then I waited for the resin to set.
I could then go to town with Gilding Flakes, Duo Embellishing Adhesive, Glossy Accents, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Accent Beads, Self Adhesive Pearls, Steampunk Style Patterned Heart Charm, Feathers, Ribbons and Cords. From my Jewellery findings I used Head Pins, Oval Jump Rings, Chain, Bails, Seed Beads, e Beads and Glass Beads. You can use what ever takes your fancy just let your imagination run wild.

What fantastic weather.
I have just been talking to Gillian who is working at craftrange.com today and she is having a blast. Gillian is working with Spellbinders, Media Mixage, Foil, Embossing Folders, alcohol Inks and the list went on ! she even mentioned Buttons at one point.
It sounded like she was having a real crafty session and enjoying every minute of it, oh to have a job in a craft shop when you’re a crafter – fabulous.
I may even have to go and join her for coffee and a great demonstration. I love it when you hear a crafter enthuse over products its infectious.
Untill next time
Good Evening Bloggers, hope you are all well.
Well after the excitement of Ken Oliver from Spellbinders being with us at craftrange and showing us all how the fabulous media mixage works, Ken is now on his way home to Pheonix Arizona.
Ken it was a pleasure having you visit us and we hope you will be back soon.
After the demos from Ken, we sold out of most things and had very little stock left of the other items. I am pleased to say that we have had one order arrive to top up on the products and are expecting another order soon to fully replenish our stock.
You can give us a ring on 01282 833 091 to order or click here to take you straight through to our website.
Untill Next Time
