Well as always my classes at The Glitter Pot ran over on Saturday! This was actually my last Saturday class for this year at The Glitter Pot - I am back there before the end of the year but just not on a Saturday. (My next Saturday class is actually at The Craft Barn on the 19th September which is the Saturday after their Extravaganza Weekend.)
Talking of which yesterday I decided to go on a little jaunt to The Craft Barn! There were a whole host of things that I wanted to get from there and it would have been a big box to send to me so as the weather was nice I decided to go in person. I won't tell you how much I spent but it was a lot!!
I have been wanting to have a play around with the Ten Seconds Studio stuff and The Craft Barn stock a really good selection of this. I came away with several different colours of metal sheets, the two different sorts of mats to work on using the metal, a large paper stump and the basic kit of tools. I am really looking forward to having a play around with this stuff - I have seen some of the wonderful effects that Linda Brown has created with it and am eager to have a go at it myself although I am hoping to use it in a different way. I just need to find some time to play with it now and as you already know I don't get much of that!!
Of course I didn't just come away with that!! I also bought the last set of Copic Ciaos that I was lacking in so I now have the complete set of 144 colours! I also bought one of Isabelle Norris's new stamp sheets - the flower one, and am eagerly waiting to find some time to try them out. These designs remind me very much of the Art Impressions watercolour stamps which I am a great fan of and so when I saw this sheet of stamps there was no doubt in my mind that I had to have them!
I had also been wanting some of the new light Alcohol inks to play with too and so now that I have got the metal sheets I just had to buy some of these as of course they will dry onto metal. Then I am a sucker for tiny embellishments of rhinestones, nailheads etc... so a few of these fell into my basket along with some beautiful background papers all of which I can't wait to start using!! Oh to have some time to play...............
