The sun'll come out tomorrow!!

So sang Annie in that well known musical and isn't it wonderful to be able to say that with confidence?  YAY!! Summer is truly here and I'm looking forward to tomorrow not just to see the sun but also because wor Sheena is on the telly!

Yes peeps, she'll be here with lots of inspiring demonstrations and you'll be able to see all the wonderful samples that the new Inkoids have been creating as well as us older hands, of course!  The shows are on at 1.00 p.m. and 7.00 p.m.  on Create and Craft TV.  I know that's slightly different from my last post but I've taken the times from the latest schedule posted on the C & C website.

Here is another sample I made using the Fantasy Fusion paints I'm now addicted to and this time applying them to a really cheap glass vase, again from that well known Swedish department store:

I painted the roses with colours from the Neutrals set of paints but dipped into the Cool set for the green leaves.  The photograph doesn't really do it justice (but then my photos never do!), it's so much better IRL.

Thank you for looking today and I do hope you enjoy the shows tomorrow, I know I will!

It's a Fantasy

Good evening, peeps!

Wot's with the title of this post then?  Is it this weather?  the stuff we've all been fantasising about through the long, cold Winter.  No, it's the paints I've been using for the latest projects for wor Sheena's TV programmes next Tuesday 16 July at 1.00 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. if the times aren't rescheduled.  The paints are by Pebeo and they're called Fantasy Prisme and Moon and I can tell you that I'm really in luurrve with these paints!  I just want to go on using them.  Here is one of the projects:

All you need is one of those cheap square mirrors from that well known Swedish Department store and a set of these paints to totally transform it.  I can tell you that the paints do all the work, all you have to do is drop them into the lines that you've traced over the stamp image - it couldn't be easier.  I've no doubt that wor Sheena will be demonstrating exactly how it works on Tuesday so don't forget to set the record button if you're outside enjoying the sunshine and I'll see you there!

Thank you for looking and I'll be back soon with another sneaky peek!
