Arty Crafty Holidays
9th Dec 2023 to 15th Jan 2024
All of us at Art by Jenny are having a well earned break over Christmas and the New Year. Our online shop will be left to it's own devices working hard 24/7, while we eat, sleep, drink coffee and create more art!
Any arty treasures purchased during this time will be packed and posted after we return to work in the new year. Read more for important details.
Happy Arty Day!
Last edit to this arty news blog post was 22nd Nov 2023.
Updated the Dylusions Dyamonds and Dina Wakley MEdia paragraphs with latest info, watched Tim's video about the new Trimmer again, and ticked a few boxes off my to-do list.
Everything by Tim Holtz, Dyan Reaveley and Dina Wakley that is newly released and still available is now in stock again :)
Happy Arty UnBirthday to You!
Distress Dry Glitter, Rock Candy - Limited Edition 10 Year Anniversary Bottle - by Tim Holtz and Ranger ... A crystal clear, light sparkly glitter in a 220g, 7.75 oz specially designed beautifully labelled bottle.
This wonderful limited edition release of Distress Glitter is packed into a new shape for a special occasion - the 10 year Anniversary of Tim Holtz and Ranger's Distress Dry Glitter! The classic shaped bottle is reminiscent of those from an old candy shop, finished with a special edition vintage styled label, giving it all the feels of an age gone by, documenting 10 years since Distress Rock Candy Dry Glitter was made.
Sold Out! Thank you everyone :) If you're lucky, another shop might have some left (Ranger, Simon Says Stamp, Crafties, Natalie, Paper Flourish). Google, Bing or Duck Duck Go will help find it for you or contact me if you need a hand :)
This bottle of dry very fine and sparkly glitter is beautiful to look at, easy to work with and simple to clean up. Being a clear glitter, it can be used to enhance the colour of your artwork, or altered with Distress inks, watercolour paints and other pigments and colours.
Tim's Distress Dry Glitter has a unique combination of glitter sizes to complement the nostalgic palette of the Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Product Range.
Sprinkle over or into wet glue, paint, gesso, texture paste, Ranger's Glossy Accents (sold separately) for raised glittery embellishments (3-dimensional or 3D spots, accents or areas). Alter the glitter's colour by adding glitter to a cup and add a few drops of alcohol ink. Mix with a craft stick until all the glitter is coloured. Repeat for a darker hue. Allow glitter to dry before using in your next project. Store each coloured Distress Glitter in tiny bottles or jars (for storage or to display).
Add to your project using your favourite adhesive - tape, glue, gluestick, gel, medium, gesso, paint. Add colour before you add to your project or afterwards. Experiment and have fun!
Happy Arty Sparkly Day!
All of Tim's Christmas, Halloween and Autumn arty treasures have been arriving every day and we're almost caught up with packing and sending PreOrders. Only a few ran out before the next delivery arrived. Any orders not sent yet (and don't include the seasonal Distress Crayons) will be posted on Tues, 3rd Oct (Monday is a public holiday).
Its awesome seeing it all in real life, making it so hard to choose favourites, it's all amazing! I did have a quick play with the reindeer and their new resin friends (see it in FB or Insta).
Thank you so much for being part of my arty Universe :D
