Arty News ... 27 August 2018
Hello! Can you believe its the end of August already? Where has this year gone? Its all good though because not only have I managed to squeeze in a bit of time for art this year but our garden is flowering, lemon tree is fruiting and our chook is happy! We had some sunshine today too, so I snuck out of the shop and took some photos :)
Shop News ... Jane Davenport's Artomology range of gorgeous treasures started arriving today! The stamps and Hybrid inks are the only ones left to arrive (due next month) - everything else including the beautiful Spellbinders Deep Sea Die Cutting and Embossing Machine is in stock.

Finnabair has made itself at home and the colours are amazing. Choose from Impasto Acrylic Paints, Metalliques, Opal Magic and basics like Gesso and 3D Gel in both Matte and Gloss. More are arriving every week :)
Also looking beautiful on my shelf are Dylusions Shimmer Sprays. All the colours look amazing in real life - so vibrant and sparkly! Dyan's Shimmery inks work well with both the Dylusions Ink Sprays and paints, giving us all even more ways to have fun while creating art.
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink Pads in the gorgeous new July 2018 colours have arrived! Reinkers have been delayed but will be here late August. If you're looking for Tim's amazing new Sizzix Mini Snowglobe set or any of his other amazing new treasures, keep an eye on the "PreOrder" or "What's New" categories - or contact me with your wish list!
Tim's new Glass Media Mat (craft mat) has arrived! Its amazing! They hype is not exagerated :) Just for once! lol :D Being glass I must admit, I was worried, but I have found that they're so well packed by Tonic Studio that I had nothing really to worry about! More details are in the product description. Click here for Tim's Glass Media Mat information

Looking for products and can't find them here? I have a fantastic supplier who is sure to have what you need and sends me treasure every second week :) Choose from amazing brands like Derwent, Penny Black, Caravelle, Spellbinders, We R Memory Keepers (they make Stitch Happy, Typecast and the new gadget that creates twisted wire - imagine personalised paperclips) and much much more!
Show off your art! Do you have a blog, Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook? I'd love to see what you create! So would so many others :) The fantastic thing about crafts is we all love to share, inspire, encourage and help each other.
If you've time, pop over and check it out my virtual homes too. I hope you see something that inspires you to be creative, which as you know, is really good for our heart and soul :)
Speaking of sharing and creating... If you've purchased from me lately, then you'll find a little Thank You card inside your parcel. It was created from an art journal page I made for a friend as part of a swap. You'll also see a hand-stamped image of Dyan's Sunshine Girl on a sample of Strathmore watercolour paper.
Why not have a got at recreating it yourself?
To help you, I've created easy to follow, step by step instructions, lots of photos and list of products used over at my craft blog, A Life Less Ordinary.
If you ever have questions or need a hand, I'm here to help anytime :) Thanks for reading my exciting news!
Have a Happy Creative Day!
