Well, we found the garden centre and YES, there IS a craft store contained within and yes, it's a decent size to make it worth a looksee when my crafting buds from Saltash and Upminster come to visit. It has quite a nice little giftie section and a coffee shop too so we might spend a happy hour or so and come back the scenic route to make it more interesting and then we can crack on with the serious business of the weekend . . . . . which is crafting!! What a surprise??? So, Lauren and Wynneth - all we need now is for it to be August 13th and we're ready to rock and roll! Whaddya reckon, can you wait?? I hope we'll get to post some of our projects on-line too.
As to my canvas . . . well I've distressed two "tickets" and then crackle painted with the luscious rock candy before we went out this morning and this dried whilst we were out. I then inked the crackles with Distress Inks in Black Soot and set aside whilst I decide on positioning and then applied mod podge in clear lustre to my grungepaper flower and sprinkled with holographic glitter - this is now drying too . . . the bulldog clip is really only there because that's what I used to hold the flower whilst I applied the mod podge and glitter!!!! Not sure how much more I'll get done today but watch this space
