This is a bit of a mish mash post with snippets of information about all sorts of stuff. First up, remember those gorgeous buttons that I posted about on Saturday......well.......I'm very excited to announce that after chatting to the lovely, lovely lady who makes these button and happens to be called Karen, not my Karen of course......must be the name that makes them lovely........we are going to have them for the shop. She is going to put togethert a new collection for me and I should have more news about those in about 10 days......how cool is that?
After last night's lightening post announcing that Ranger's new Archival ink pads are in the house, thought I would show you how scrummy the colours are. There are 24 in total, all listed on the website but I think you'll agree that they beyond yummy in these display racks.
As they only arrived yesterday, I couldn't wait to open a few this morning, so I grabbed Monarch Orange, Vermillion, Cobalt and Saffron. Just smooshed them on a tag direct from the pad and I am very pleased to report that the colours are very rich and vibrant and now I can't wait to play around and find out what I can do with them.
Today is my Fresco Finishes class today, so I am typing this post whilst I am waiting for all my lovely ladies to arrive. Stiil in love with this paint and one of the techniques I'll be sharing with my students today is spraying the paint to get a soft blended look.
After my class, I'm hoping to dash home early so that I can continue the next mammoth task in my life......code name......"fill up the new studio with all things inky, painty and beady" ....tis a mammoth task, I have A LOT of stuff. I'll try and post updates.
Think I need to get the kettle on ready for class.
