Billie’s Craft Room – FREE online workshops

My friend Billie is hosting a series of online workshops, completely free of charge this summer, called Adventures in Acrylics! Be there or be square!

Billie has been making video tutorials for Youtube for a long time now and she’s cool, calm and collected! She delivers her tutorials in a no-nonsense, fun way and has lots of practical advice to share. So, if you’re having a “staycation” this year and want to have some fun with your acrylics, which will only cost you time and materials… here’s where it’s at:

Featured Artist… Me!

That’s such an honour, isn’t it? I am Billie’s “Featured Artist of the Month” for April. So, if you head on over there – click on the link – you can read the interview! It’s surprising how much I wrote, having re-read it, but it’s (almost) everything you ever wanted to know about me as an artist! Wow! Thank you, Billie… ❤

If you’ve been reading my blog lately, you’ll know that I have been dyeing (try-dyeing: similar to tiedyeing, but with less predictable results!) my own scraps and bits of fabric. I want to make some Fabric Inchy charms… yes indeedy! But, as I am on this awesome Journey of Discovery, I also want to use my own images and designs to make these charms truly “all my own”. To that end, I spent a while on my PC yesterday preparing a sheet of Inchies. Well, they turned out so good that I had to list them in my Etsy store!

As Michelle would say:”How cool is that?”  So later today, when I have been to town and talked to Martyn or Lynne at the Seventh Wave Gallery, I shall be carefully printing that sheet onto fabric – using my precious freezer paper; then employing some Bondaweb (similar to Mistyfuse), to attach it to the prepared fabric sandwich, and hopefully, the end result will be some fabulous, original inchy charms!

Fingers crossed, eh?! 😉
