More Shows...

Happy Thursday,

I hope you all enjoyed a look into my wardrobe yesterday with my first demo card on Hochanda!  I'm back tonight with the second One Day Special on Christmas Decoupage and MDF!

This is one of the techniques I will be demoing tonight gilding MDF items.  I'm not sure if this piece will be demoed however I will be showing how to gild the Christmas MDF.  There should be some pictures of the pieces I am demoing however I can't seem to get them to appear!
I thought you all wouldn't mind seeing his piece instead.

i will be demoing at Sharon's Card Craft in Swanley until 3pm today, pop along and sat i if you are in the area!

The winner of Mondays card was Josephine, please email me your address to Lockers and I will send it out to you.  All other cards and prizes have been sent out please if you haven't received your card by Friday email me to make sure everyone gets what they have been promised!

The Design Team call for Creative Expressions has gone out!  If you would like to join our exciting team then click HERE for more details!

  22. Love this, will definitely be watching to see how you have used the guilding flakes, take care, Linda.

  23. Eh up John
    This would make a fabulous addition to anyone's festive mantle. I'm sure that the gilding would look amazing in the flicker of the candle or fire light.
    You're going to have to get yourself a chopper (steady!) to transport you between events lol!

  24. John, you sound like the Energizer Bunny running between shows and events. I was unable to see your shows yesterday (I am so bummed) but hope to see them on repeat over the weekend? Good luck today and love the gilding flakes on the MDF. Get some rest please.

  29. Hi John, oooo this is gorgeous! Another reminder of the gilding flakes, which means a glitter and gilded carpet on the agenda! Lol! It was great watching you yesterday. Love the rock salt technique and I bet it made you all hungry with the added herbs in there too! Hope to see you at 8pm! "Thank you John" xx Love Karen xx

  30. Hi John, this construction looks very interesting. What a busy boy you are with all these Hochanda shows. Am catching up with yesterday's and thoroughly enjoying them and learning the stamping techniques. I used the salt method in an art class in one of my first cruises but your use of a courser salt is better than better than the finer stuff we used. Certainly won't have smelt as good that is for sure. I am really looking forward to watching you gilding MDF, I can imaging how the end products will look quite spectacular.


  31. Hi John, lovely to see you today in Swanley. Great demos as usual. I've come away with lots of ideas and inspirations. Keep up the good work!!! Janice xxx

  32. Hi John,
