Our Biggest Sale Ever

Our recent purchase of The Stamp Barn required us to make some changes to the store. One of these changes has required us to give up display space in a store that was hardly big enough to begin with. Anyone who has visited knows we make the most of every bit of display space. Now we have a problem, a good problem, but still a problem and this is where we need your help. We need to clear out to make room for the new.

I got some time last weekend to do some playing with Letraset AquaMarkers. Rose-Marie gave me 3 different papers to use as well; 2 different weights watercolour papers and the 130lb paper we use for Letraset alcohol markers.

These markers are very easy to use either directly on paper or blended on a palette. The fine tip give you great control for adding shadows and the broad tip is fabulous for scribbling on your palette.

I discovered something important about myself. I am not much of a water colourist. I guess that is why I have hated colouring images so much. (Well until I discovered the joys of Copics and Letrasets.) They aren't bad really but I love colour. Beautiful, bold colour!! I think I will add a bit of shine to the butterflies with Sakura Gelly Rolls and Flower Soft to the flower centres. Of note, the 130 lb paper was my personal favourite paper to use with the AquaMarkers. I haven't mentioned it yet but the image is from The Stamp Barn (NAT019), sorry I'm not sure of the name of this stamp.

I will share the completed card soon and I may practice water colouring a bit more. There are so many images which are so well suited to water colouring, I feel I should maybe give it a second chance.

One more thought, the 6 markers shown with the coloured images were all the markers I used to colour each of these images. In fact I think I may have photographed one more marker than I actually used. Creating depth is so easy with the AquaMarkers, I think I could even master the technique. Well almost :)

Country Stamp & Scrap Getaway Cancelled

We were so close to making this weekend happen but the stars just didn't align. People who had signed up cancelled for a variety of reasons. It became obvious that there just wasn't enough time left to fill the cancelled places and still give Cathie time to cancel her flight. We truly regret having to cancel since we had such great projects ready for you to enjoy and we were all looking forward to meeting Cathie Allen.

Anyone who has prepaid for this event will be reimbursed immediately. We apologize for any inconvenience.
