Well it's Ally Pally weekend and yesterday I went down on the train (so nice not to have to drive) and had a mooch around. Didn't really have any "I must buy" requirements but still spent a small fortune mostly at PaperArtsy!
going to shows is great (apart from spending the money), because you get the opportunity to see the products being used, get ideas, meet old friends and make new friends who all like the same stuff you do! But the best bit for me was having the opportunity to do some demoing on the PaperArtsy stand. It was great to show new and old PaperArtsy fans the greatness (is that a word? I don't know but it should be, Oxford English Dictionary or OED for us librarians in the know, get it added in the list!) of these products and what they can do, answering questions and finding out from people what kind of art they like to make and how they use the paints, stamps and Treasure Gold. So thank you Leandra for the opportunity, loved it!
So if you spoke to me yesterday afternoon (Saturday) about Treasure Gold and it smelling like shoe polish, which pink paints to buy, how to use crackle glaze, what's journaling all about and are you a comment maker or a lurker it was great to meet you!
Here is one of the tags I made in a steam punky Finnabair style using Grunge Paste, going to try this again, now where are all those bits and bobs?
