We are so happy to announce that after months of work and planning the shop is finally open. It’s all thanks to my amazing husband Martin who has worked like a trooper to build the web site and shop and without him it wouldn’t have been possible.
I know it’s early days and there are bound to be hiccups, there always are in these sort of circumstances but on the whole I’m not expecting any dramas (she says fingers crossed).
Anyway, as I say on the banner, it’s full of the things I love and use regularly and I couldn’t be more proud.
You can visit the shop either by clicking the shop button at the top or on the photo on this blog post or simply by clicking here.
I missed blogging last week even though I did create a page in my journal. I think I just got a bit dazed at the weekend by the awful events which unfolded in Paris and it didn’t seem right to try and forget about it here so I just left my post for a week.
The week before that though M and I spent some time in Porto, enjoying some warm sunshine and a bit of relaxation before the madness of the season and I did spend some time sketching and took lots of photo’s to use later on in my work.
Right at this very moment I’m sitting on a balcony with a glass of wine watching the sun go down over Porto in northern Portugal. It is a small get away from it all to recharge the batteries before the madness of Christmas and a chance to grab some sunshine and top up the vitamins D.
Before I left though I didn’t forget about creating a weekly journal page and here it is.
Once again I got together with Clare for a bit of a journal session and we both worked on more ways to play with texture. Here I used some scrunched up tissue paper and texture paste and applied colour with Color Burst pigments.
I’ll be back next week but in the mean time have a good weekend from a sunny Porto.
As promised I’ve finished editing the new video and it’s ready to be published. It’s full of texture and how to achieve it and a good way to use up some of those old chipboard shapes we all have hidden away and forgotten about.
