The speed of the passing of 2015 is positively terrifying. I am sure New Year was only last week, although I do remember going down to the Crop in May. I do not seem to be doing very well at blogging this year either. A quick blink of the eyes and another Wednesday is over and done with. If you are wondering why Wednesday is a significant day of the week, then I will leave it to our Julia to explain far better than I all about WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday).
I am still trying to get all my stuff back into my craft room where it belongs. However, that ambition is not helped by certain people bringing out new "must have" products and the NEED to try them out and see just what I can do with them. These pictures of my temporary desk/picnic table show some of my latest acquisitions.
The major new product is the recently launched Groovi plate system for parchment from Clarity. Although I have done parchment for several years, this new system, designed for beginners and experienced parchers alike, has been impossible to leave alone. The little picture was partially done on the Groovi plate, although the central design was transferred from this week's Mindfulness colouring download from Barbara Gray. I mounted it on a black painted canvas board.
I also went to a demo of Sissix products down at our local craft shop, Pink Tulip Creations, which was excellent. The demonstrator, Pete Hughes, certainly did a great job and I learned a lot of hints and tips and was reminded of a lot more. As you can see, I did not leave it at just watching the demo.
The Colour Burst powders, still in their packets, are very similar to Brushos, but a little more controllable. I need to get them out and play very soon, so I am having to be very strong and resist while I finish resorting my stamps again.
How many of you are heading down to Burbage again later this year? I am really looking forward to that trip and hope to meet up with lots of you then.
Right now, it is time I pointed you in the direction of our hostess with the mostest, Julia, who will send you on round the other desks on show this week. I hope to visit as many of you as possible during the rest of the week. Have a great week, all of you.
