Thank you for stopping by.
It’s Thursday already! Somebody slow the clock down for Pete’s sake!!! And mine!!!
Pete’s only been back from his holidays since yesterday,
and he already looks frazzled!
But let’s get on with the Thursday Blue Blog....
Found a 6"x6"Gelli Plate scrap I made way back when, with Phthalo Blue Acrylic Paint, Crimson and some Punchinella.
Decide which way round it works for what you have in mind.
Or if you are like me this morning, stare at it,
hoping something may come to you!
And then she saw it....
Go find the lovely Clarity Characters,
and stamp Rosie into the frame using Black Archival.
Get Lillie to hold her hand; she’s a bit low.
Let’s use the umbrella in the kit to symbolise a rainy day in her life. Trouble is, the handle won’t reach to their hands...
Easy solution. Read on.
Only ink up the stem of the brolly; leave the handle out.
Ok. Well now we just need to join the two points.
Stamp or Pen? What would you do?
I’m all for a challenge, but I’m going with the pen and ruler!
Let’s perch them on the Word Friendship, from Word Chain No. 8
Look! I couldn’t even get their feet to land on the letters!
Time to go to Specsavers....
A little corrective work with the pen required.
Nobody will ever know...
Cut the piece back to a panel.
Add some blue to Rosie’s dress, and some red to Lillie’s with a colouring pencil,
Mount on a dark blue to frame.
So there we have it. Two friends supporting each other.
Some great friendships have been forged through this little Clarity company. When I step back and observe from a distance,
it is heart-warming to see how people within the greater Clarity family reach out and help each other.
It really is quite a strong movement,
which cannot be quantified in business terms.
There’s much more to this than making, selling
and using stamps and stencils!
That said, we have been nominated for another set of awards,
The British Craft Awards 2015,
which is very exciting and flattering.
We have never reacher the shortlists for these awards before.
The three nominations this time are:
Best Stamp Range
Most inspirational Blog
Most popular Card Designer
