Only One Week To Go........

Until this!

I don't know about you but I am already getting excited!!  I love demoing at these events as there is always such a buzz and this promises to be the best yet as there is an amazing line up of demonstrators.  For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about simply click here for more information.

However I've got to confess that I am beginning to panic ever so slightly as I am nowhere near prepared!  What with one thing and another I haven't been able to spend the time so far on my prep infact this is as far as I have got!!

Colouring in a few images!

So far each of these images are coloured using my trusty Copics but now I need to get colouring some with Distress Inks too!

I know that some people think that when colouring with Copics their images are too dark but do these look dark to you?  You can get some beautiful, pastel results using your Copic markers so if you'd like to stop by my table next weekend I'll show you how I do it!

By the way aren't these images fabulous?  I am so lucky to be able to play with these for the June Weekend.  They are of course designed by Elisabeth Bell for Belles 'n' Whistles which I'm delighted to say The Craft Barn are now stocking!  As well as demoing with some of these little cuties I'll also be taking a couple of classes at The Craft Barn on Saturday 26th June using two of these gorgeous images. In the morning class I'll be showing you how to get pastel results (like these) using your Copics and in the afternoon class we'll be watercolouring another image with Distress Inks, so if you fancy coming along and having a go you know what to do!

Well enough talking..........................I think I'd better get on with some work so that I've actually got some finished cards to show you next weekend!!  So no fun in the sun for me then!!

Hi Kay, can't wait to see the finished results. Will be travelling to Lingfield on the Saturday morning in time for a workshop with Chris Dark at 1pm. So see you after 2 o'clock. I've also attending a workshop on the Sunday. At least with attending a couple of workshops the opportunity to spend will be reduced slightly, but only slightly.

We're staying at the Felbridge Spa hotel this time. More upmarket from we stayed last year. Nick will be fine as long as he gets to see England's World Cup match.

Hugs, Pauline x

Thanks guys!

Pauline - it'll be lovely to see you again and I'm really envious that you are doing a workshop with Chris Dark - she is such a talented lady!

Jo - rotten timing with your holiday but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Hopefully see you on the 26th instead!!

Hi Kay
Sorry to have been a bit quiet this week, I've just been having a catch up at what you've been up to. More shopping I see. Mmm that flower punch looks very interesting. I've just checked out the blog you recommended and was amazed. I've bookmarked it to have a closer look when I'm not so half asleep. I need to find out how to make those incredible flowers.
These images are so cute and your colouring is just amazing. I try and fail with shading so I will just admire yours!
Have a great week.
Hugs Lisax
