Nearly There

Yesterday I went out to buy "Supplies" for the weekend, not food that is on today's to do list. I went out to buy odd bits I needed to get on with project a bit further out of my comfort zone. I had a list and only managed to get ONE thing off my list so some projects may not get completed this weekend, which just makes me cross I hadn't sourced things earlier but to be honest I was confident I could just go pick these things up and didn't realise how hard it might be. The good news is I did find others things that I want to work with, so I am sure I have more project than I can possibly finish in 24 hours. Today my list has important but not crafty jobs, like food shopping and getting my hair cut!
Anyway as I dropped off my acquisitions at the studio yesterday I suddenly realised that one of my signs was already a great example of using the clematis tower stamp off the page. This is an old roof slate salvaged whilst stay at a friends house, the words have been added by hand with a white paint marker, probably a Pilot one and 3 decoupaged Clematis flowers added with some silicon glue...pretty simple really!
If you would like to call in this weekend to see what I am up  to and offer your support then email I am there 8am to 8pm Saturday and Sunday.

I love this project and was glad to see it survived the move to your new studio, I seem to recall you sat in a corner muttering a lot the day you made this. You have come a long way my friend don't forget that.

Thank you, glad you like it, and yes it was a dark day! Here's to the future.

Hi Lynnda, the sign is wonderful and the writing looks so professional too. Love the clematis stamp and it looks amazing on the sign. Hope all goes well for you at the weekend, we have to go to a dreaded railway exhibition..... Crafty hugs, Anne x

Love the idea of the slate tile for a sign, it looks so effective and the stamped image is the perfect detail.
Good luck!!!
