Hello peeps, have you had a good week? I hope so.
This Wednesday on my desk are a few new goodies. I rarely buy craft stash these days (as I have a room full of stuff) but Sunday saw me go to a small craft show where I bought a few goodies.
On my shopping list was spray and shine (as I have tried other ways to replicate the shine in Sheena Douglass' brilliant fake leather with no success), some glossy accents (as I am nearly out), a sizzix bigz die of a fob watch (I like these dies as I can cut leather out of them so I can easily make this into a circle) which was only £6 and also some great stamps which were only £3.99-bargains.
I also bought 2 colours of brusho a waterbased paint I have considered buying for a couple of years since I saw it demo'd at the NEC but had only seen the sets, whereas these were only £1.40 each so more affordable to try a new product.
Last week I showed you a new photo printing kit I bought and this is the first t shirt I made from it
The idea is that you choose a digital image and create a negative which you print out on special film. I chose a picture I took at night of the wheel in London. You then apply the light sensitive dye to the fabric (in this case I used a black dye) then place the negative over and expose it to the sun for about 15 mins...wash it out and voila! I am loving this idea and am thinking I would like to make cushions with this image on...ooh, once again SO many ideas but so little spare time!
