PaperArtsy On Tour : Happy Stampers {at port Sunlight}

It's show time! And that means time to share lots of ideas with you guys oop North!

This weekend we are heading to the Happy Stampers show which is held at the stunning Hulme Hall, Port Sunlight, The Wirral. 

The show is on Saturday May 6th, 10:30 - 4:00, and this is a ticketed show, so if you haven't pre-booked online, then you are probably out of luck for an off-the-cuff visit.

I can't get away from using my white pens in the final layers of journalling,. Its a bit of a long demo, painted backgrounds followed by stamps, more colour, then finally I get to put white all over it! I'm addicted. As you can see!

This one is with Kay Carley stamps and (shhhhhhhh) glitter.....

This one a bit softer with watercolours over new Kim Dellow stamps, a tad more delicate and simple, but the same idea nonetheless....

With the new Zinski Art holey flowers - I adore those flowers, they just are super-fun to use! I also got some Seth Apter texture background stamps from Impression Obsession in there, and a new Kay Carley Stencil!!

And with Tracy Scott stamps on a tag.....

.... and another Kim Dellow sample with a Tracy Scott Border. 

Demoing with me this weekend I have Lauren who will share how she adores all things Zinski....

She is also a dab hand with the infusions over pewter paint...a twist on what Raquel gets upto, so she'll probably share how she made this with you if you inquire!

Lauren has also fallen head over heels for the new Amsterdam Acrylic Inks too!! Not only do they make sense over textured, stencilled painted layers....

But they are also rather nice for adding colour to images too! And drippage!

And don't forget mixing them into texture paste! That's when you put your mad scientist hat on! Lots and lots of fun!

Keren Baker will be dropping by for a quick lunchtime demo too! Keren always has amazing ideas!
