Gild the Lily

My sister in law, Julia, now has her blog Gild the Lily up and running. The first project she's posted is some ATCs made with the masked backgrounds that she did here when playing around with my Tim Holtz masks. They look really lovely (of course I haven't made anything yet out of the ones I did...) Maybe Julia having a blog will help me pay more attention to mine - after all it's a competition now!

Vintage seaside

Yesterday my sister in law and I went to the Craft4Crafters show at Exeter and had a good day out and bought plenty. One of my purchases was a lovely set of stamps called Vintage Seaside by TweetyJill and here's an ATC made using several of the stamps.

We spent yesterday evening setting up a blog for Julie - she hasn't had a chance to post to it yet so I won't link to it for the moment. She has also just had her second project published in Quick and Crafty magazine (Jan & Feb editions - Julia Jordan is the name to look for) which is great news.

Next class

I've been busy prepping my next class which is another one on alcohol inks. People seem to like the idea of them but once they've got them they are not sure how to use them. In fact they are very simple but you never manage to exactly replicate an effect - all part of the charm. These are 3 of the cards we will be making (the 4th wouldn't scan properly because it was done on mirri card).
