Today was Stamperama day in Stevenage. I love this craft show, it’s not too big, so there’s plenty of room to see everything. And this time, I didn’t have to travel by train! Georgina, who I know from the Lisa B Designs class drove there & she gave me a lift, it was wonderful. Thank you Georgina!
Here are my purchases. Most of them are from PaperArtsy, (look at those paint colours!!), but I had to have the gorgeous bird stamps by Neil Walker for The Artistic Stamper & I’ve wanted a chevron stamp for an age & a half. The metal flowers & the set of arch dies were an absolute bargain & could NOT be ignored.
Here’s Leandra working with fresco paints & grunge paste.
Here she showed us how to build layers of fresco paints. We all loved this fish.
Here’s the fish & below the finished piece, which Leandra presented to Helen. Jealous, moi???
Here’s Lin. She was demoing fresco paints on her gorgeous range of stamps. There were lots of “ooohs” as we watched her work.
The pics below are not good, I was looking over people’s shoulders. The piece in the middle is the finished one from Lin’s demo above & either side are more of her beautiful samples.
I also spent time at The Artistic Stamper stand, where Jennie was showing us the new Dylusions Spray Ink Pad & mini Dylusions journal, by Dyan Reaveley. Both of which, needless to say, are now on my wish list. I was so engrossed watching Jennie, that I forgot to take any photos, which is a shame.
I had such a lovely time today. It was great to spend time with fellow crafters & now I need to play with my new goodies………
Until next time,
Love & light.
