Masks Away!

Happy Tuesday,

Its a giveaway day but first the amazing Talented and hilarious on a six hour drive across the country Julia Watts is on Hochanda today with her Magic with Masks shows ( these won't involve Julia wearing different animal masks cut from the back of cornflake packet honest! lol) Julia will be on at 10am, 1pm and 6pm it would be great if you could tune in I know I am so I can steal more techniques from her!

I thought it would be nice to show a card I made for the shows I did with ue Wilson last year as it features the counterpane mask and iced snow.  This is hopefully one of the techniques Julia will show.







If you would like the chance to win this card simply leave a comment on this post.

Enjoy...

P.s. Dont forget I am on Hochanda tomorrow ( I nearly forgot its been a busy weekend lol) with the new watercolour stamps by Sam Poole tune in tomorrow for a sneak peak!

  6. Hi John, this card is lovely, great background with the mask, always such tactile effects that you can achieve. I can just imagine how many laughs you and Julia had on your trip. Hoping to catch both her shows and yours. Have a good day. Bx

  11. Morning John, this is a lovely card today, I will definitely be tuning into Hochanda today, (I do every day for what I want to see), pity their deliveries are not good, I am still waiting for my order from 13th September........had 8 phone calls with them so far, been promised that the order has gone out only to find out yesterday that the system is not picking up my address........still hopefully it will get sorted, I am waiting for some masks etc. to arrive and want to get playing.

    I will have to miss any of you tomorrow morning as I am at craft, we are having a macmillan coffee morning and then in the afternoon I have a hospital appointment so will probably only get a chance to see some of the shows, but I know they will be on repeated, I wished Virgin had them on their channel and I could then tape them.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  15. Morning John,
    I do like this card today is got great colours.
    I'm no expert at masking I must admit end up smudging when I take off the mask, yes I do what Sue does tape all round and lift it with the last piece of tape. As soon as I put it somewhere to dry I end up something falling on it or smudging with my fingers.
    I will persevere though even if it takes a long time.
    Have a great day

  25. Hi John
    I love that card, my reaction on seeing it was "wow".
    Thanks for the info about Julia's show, from the title I'd never guess it would be of interest. I love the new tv channel, but they need to improve the scheduling info. Recorder is set up for your show tomorrow.

  29. I love it! I have an obsession with buying masks, ordered two more last night. Why? I don't use them nearly as much as I should. Very easy to store though, they don't take up much room (ha ha). All set for Julia today. SueL x

  35. Going to record all the shows so that I can see the fantastic work all over again. Recording Julie today and will set the recorder for tomorrow.
    Glad to say Mum is now out of hospital and although she is 250 miles away its good that she is now started complaining it must mean she is on the road to recovery.
