I am also doubly lucky as I will be working with the great Sue Wilson who will be introducing me on a couple of her hours as she is doing the One Day Wonder, see the new sidebar listing for show times. I don't know which 2 hours I will be doing as yet however I will be doing a demo each hour so those of you who weren't able to attend Ally Pally and wanted to see me work can now do so from the comfort of your own armchairs.
I have been busy beavering away for a few weeks making show samples and getting my demos ready and prepared and as I am sure you can all imagine I have a lot more to do! I can't say how excited, nervous and a little overawed with this and everything I have achieved since returning from Spain I am. However I know that the encouragement and support from my blog family has been a wonderful help.
Choosing Today's crafty creation was a little difficult as it is a little early to do a sneak peak of what will be on the shows however, obviously, I wanted something special for today. AS my demoing at Ally Pally is part of what I will be doing I thought I would give a few pictures of some of the demo pieces I made whilst on the stand. Also it's only fair to show the results of the challenge set for me by Sue and her Auntie Mary!
The first card is one of the techniques I was asked to explain and demo the most, I had my triple stamped Christmas card from a couple of weeks ago on the stand and so many people wanted me to show them the technique. The let it snow card is actually just the piece I made to show one group made up into a card. The stamping, embossing, matting, foam amounting and glue dotting was all done in situ and so the front piece was completed there. All i have done for today is add the bow and the layers to frame the piece and make it into a card.
As I was primarily covering die cutting and embellishing I kept cutting the Let It snow die, which I used on the front of this card and showed lots of techniques on how to embellish it. these show it covered in iced snow, letters picked out in twinkles and Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA as well as Diamond Sparkle. I did do one in silver gilding flakes which was, if I say myself, beautiful (mainly due to the gilding flakes and not my skill in application) however that vanished from my table soon after being made!
So Pleased to be able to finally share all my news I promise that is all I have for now!
