Back from Paris
As usual, I was an idiot and really didn't take many photographs at all. If I wasn't working on the stand, I was busy shopping.....well it would have been very silly not to take advantage of all those pretty things on display, wouldn't it?
Leandra's stand looked amazing....you'll have to take my word for it as I don't have a piccie but it was busting at the seems with all the amazing new Hot Picks, Dies, Fresco Finish Paint, Pan Pastels, Crafters Workshop Stencils, Metal Embossing tools and packs of metal, their new papers Crunchy & Smoothy papers......love these....take my word for it, you need these!!!! They also had a wonderful selection of wooden substrates and embellishments galore!!! Leandra and I demoed our little socks off for three and a half days and during that time, Leandra also taught two classes.....phew, no wonder we're a bit pooped. Now the upside of the hard work is that Mark and Leandra are fabulous at looking after their team of helpers and here we are sharing a laughter filled evening before heading home.
The food in this restaurant was truly amazing and it was one of the funniest evenings, we laughed so much, it reduced many of us to tears.
Finally, I'll leave you with a picture of a couple of things that I demoed at the show. The first is a mixture of techniques using Paperartsy Fresco Finish paint which is what I used to achieve that beautiful crackle effect, Pan Pastels as the background and a stamped metal butterfly on the top.
OK, that's me for today, I'm off to cook tea.
