Version Scrap, Paris 2016

I have just unpacked my demo kit and samples from the show in Paris. Version Scrap is an amazing show, very different from any show here in the UK so I thought I would share a few photos with you. We were so busy, I didn't get an opportunity to take photos of all the fabulous displays this year, but there are a LOT of photos of samples I made......I was a very busy girl!!!!!

First up, here's a photo of PaperArtsy's Paris team. Most of you will know that the show clashed with Ally Pally again this year so Leandra headed up the London team, while we were in Paris with Mark.

L to R - Sally, Audrey who is expecting a little girl this summer, me, Mark, Florence and Dounia.

As you can see from this photo (taken by the very lovely Martha from Italy), there are quite a lot of samples on my desk!!!

A bit of an action shot, again courtesy of Martha. Please excuse my very painty fingers!!!

Here's the finished shot of the above sample. I was showing how to use translucent paints over the top of Crackle Glaze.

Just starting a Treasure Gold demo with my good pal Sally translating for me.

The finished sample......Treasure Gold, tarnished with Archival ink.

A couple of samples using the new Infusions.

Some samples showing how to layer up backgrounds with opaque and translucent Fresco Finish paint.

Some samples made with Crayola's Slick Stix. The first one also has some Infusions too.

A grunge Paste and Crackle Glaze background with some flowers made out of Crunchy Paper. 

And last but not least, a very simple tag, showing how Snowflake Fresco really freshens up a simple background.

I was so sorry that I had left staying to watch your demos until the afternoon,( hoping that the massive crowd around you would have died down a bit) as I had to go and find my ailing hubby(who incidentally was fine by the time I reached him, and asked me why I had come!!) From what I saw in the morning your samples were fabulous so it is good to see them here! It was a very packed area and definitely different to UK shows! Chrisx

What lovely comments . . . and all of them so true -- Lin, you worked and worked and worked and the samples were breath-taking. The people watching the demos were often absolutely flabbergasted by the magical samples you produced. I am such a lucky person to be able to be part of the P.A. Version Scrap team each year and to stand next to you for a good part of the show and babble away in French, helping the people understand the technicalities of what you're doing -- how and why. Such a privilege. Time now to reflect on our hectic show, and to recuperate a little bit -- we all had a terrific time, but need to rest up a wee bit afterwards. Thank you to Paper Artsy and to Lin for a very, very special experience.
Bisous (French equivalent of hugs!) -- Sally xo

What a gorgeous collection of your art Lin, all unique and different, I love them all!! Thank you for sharing these images and a bit of story of what happened at Version Scrap this year... I really regret to not have been able to come and see you demoing this year! I hope you have had a great time anyway, with pleasant and interested ladies seeing and listening to you.
Hugs, Coco x
