Some New Arrivals

We have just received delivery of all these gorgous acrylic paints from DecoArt - 42 of their most popular colours plus three metallic and glaze.  In addition we also have some of the Chalkboard and Shimmer Paints from Creative Expressions.  And all this because we are inspired by
the Creative Palette from Stampendous.  If you have ever wanted to create your own background papers this is just for you (and no two will ever be the same).  We have also brought in the DecoArt Drying Time Extender to make sure that you get the most out of your Acrylic Paints.

And Finally: 
Some new dies by Sweet Dixie which are selling really well - the prices of those in stock cannot be repeated once we have to re-order so don't delay.

I spent two days at Woodware in Yorkshire on the Dreamweaver Certification Course - I learn so many useful tips and applications which I can use in future classes.  Whilst on the course we were given two stencils and were asked to use one, both (or even part of them) in a project to be completed after the course.  This is my final project (we also had to write out the instructions for completing this - mine ran to three pages!).  The base was the Art Nouveau Stencil which was embossed and shading was applied by the Strie method.  The elephant was a new stencil released this year and pasted in matte black.  The blanket was added using Metallic F/X and then adhesive jewels added to complete the effect.  I e-mailed this over to Lynell in the States on Monday afternoon and on Tuesday afternoon received a lovely reply back saying that I was now a Certified Dreamweaver Stencil Teacher.
