I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came back and created.... I 'played' and came up with this.... Sorry, I didn't get photos of Pol' time.
I even stitched a border .... I have to say using Emma's stamps makes it an easy task, then I added a few of my own from WOW Embossing Powder, some grunge paste, embossing and stencils and .... TA DAH !!!!
My previous one today was this little gem...... I think I like circles LOL !!!
I'm working it in my Dyan Reavley book....nice thick pages :) 
Here we are showing our masterpieces, as taught by Emma and Paula

This is my card using the Tonic goodies and the WOW Embossing Powder Stamps

It's a shame you can't see the pearliness going on...... Lush !!!

So I'll be getting my paints out more...good job I've got loads !!
As we all blow you a kiss goodbye......
Take care

I was first shown this technique a while back by Emma Godfrey from Imagine That Papercrafts, she showed me the technique with black ink, so I thought…Hmmmm…. I'm going to try it with paint…so I grabbed my favourite PaperArtsy Fresco Chalk paints and gave it a go…. I loved the result….Hope you enjoy the video…
Ooooh nearly forgot to say, after the quickest sell out in the history of sell outs the WOW INK PAD is back in stock. Woo hoo !!! Along with some more WOW newbies…
AND…. the NEW Card Fronts are now in stock …. Double Woo Hoo !!
AND…. have you noticed the NEW stamps from PI have reduced in price …. Triple Woo Hoo !!!
