Ally pally - day one

Well, day one done and dusted. I love doing these shows...yep I'm knackered and my throat feels like I've been gargling drawing pins, but I love these shows. I love demonstrating properly - something I obviously rarely do on c&c. I love working with all my crafty demonstrator friends and seeing everyone for a catch up and a goss. And of course it's brilliant to see the crafters. There's so many people I recognise each year, who always greet me with smiles, hugs or pressies :) There's loads of new people as well....who either already know me off Qvc and c&c, and love seeing that I do actually do crafting and it's not just me blagging it for the shows. And then, of course, there's folk who have never heard of c&c and haven't a clue who I am....but who go away saying they will tune in!! 

Brilliant show.

And I get to play with seriously ace stuff.

Love the mdf pieces, the stamps and the paints. This is another little piece I did for the show, which I was really chuft with. These are part of the Wendy vecchi art parts collection, which are really cool. I used the cosmic shimmer texture paste and the mask, on the top of a painted background. When the clear paste was dry, I applied a different colour of paint over the top, and then rubbed the top layer of paint off the texture paste. This then allows the first colour to show through. 

I used the cosmic shimmer gold texture paste on the painted wings. Stamped the sentiment and added it to my little bird - and off she flew. 

I hope you can come along tomorrow for more mess and fun xx
