But I did finally get to sort out the stuff bought at the NEC, so let the Enabling commence!
First off, some loose glitters, some foils, and the big roll is Double sided adhesive sheet, someone was selling it in a variety of sized rolls, this one looks to be about A4 in width.
A few stencils, dies and stamps from Sweet Poppy.
The octopus is new, looks a bit like a Kraken, I think. Very large Dragons Eye stamp.
A few new stamps from Lavinia, they've had quite a few releases lately.
A stencil and number stamps from Honey Doo, both outline & solid. They've had a Black Friday 20% off sale this week, so will be a few more stamps to share next week.
Some glitter cardstock, the non shed, die cuttable type.
And lastly some of the fab 'oil on water' type cardstock. And that was it. As you can see, very little was actually bought.
So, moving on, something I wanted to share, as I think it may interest those who do Mixed Media work, or shadow boxes/ filled jars etc.
What he did was to take some of the tiny seed type fairy lights, then around each light stem he moulded a 'stalk' using Translucent Silicone Sealant, the sort you'd use in a kitchen/bathroom. After the stalk had set, he moulded a mushroom cap from more sealant, then stuck the two parts together with a tiny dab of silicone when the caps were set.
The white ones are 'as is', the green have had a little ink/paint added to the silicone. When it was all fully set, he's mounted them onto pieces of bark picked up on local woodland walks. Pictures don't do them justice, they look awesome in real life.
So, running late today but finally done, I'll pop over to Julias place, The Stamping Ground, and leave my link in a minute.
But that brings us round to this weeks ....And Finally, and theres more than one for you here. Came across these amusing Garment washing Instructions!
