Flower tags...

Happy saturday,

As I mentioned yesterday Julia Watts and I are demoing at Samuel Taylors in Leeds today It would be great to see you!

I thought you might all like to see some of the tags I made during my flower making tutorial hour on Hochanda last Thursday.  As I said yesterday I had so much fun making these.  I was a little concerned that some of the colours didi not come across on the screen properly however these pictures should hopefully show the subtle shading I was going for!



  1. Morning John,bfabulous flowers and beautiful colours.

  2. Morning John, nice to see the close ups of the flowers, you can't always get that on all the TV channels, they look much more realistic with the different bits of shading etc. Now you and Julia enjoy yourselves at ST in Leeds today, I am sure you will, it will be a laugh a minute, wish I could get there.

    Remember the clocks go back tonight so we get another hour of crafting tomorrow, yiphee.

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

  3. Hi John.

  14. Good Morning John,
    These flowers are gorgeous, and yes they do look better here than on screen, maybe it's the lighting they use I did manage to catch up and watch all of your shows.
    Don't think you need a presenter on your shows you are so great at demonstrating
    Have a great day in Leeds.

  15. Great cards and tags John, loved the shows, just watched the last one this morning. I email in but they dont read many out do they?

  16. Thank you for all these ideas, John. All we have to do now is remember them!

  31. Hi John
    Love the tags and flowers. I hope your shows recorder as two of them didn't and said they had been corrupted on the messages. Not to sure how a recording on a hard drive can be corrupted. Thanks for the email regarding the gift wallet you made on Hocanda.

    Gorgeous flowers can't wait to watch the demo's. Loved yesterday's card just too ill to get out of bed yesterday. Have a great demo day in Leeds.
