The That’s Crafty! One Day Special continues into its second day… It’s more accurately termed a 24-hour special, but that’s me being my normal pedantic self. I’m on your viewing screens again today at 9am and hopefully at 1pm and 5pm (apparently the latter two slots will be subject to previous sales thresholds being met). Do tune in to Hochanda (Freeview 85 (all shows), Sky 663 or online at hochanda.com) and feel free to pass on a message or question by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m live on your viewing screens today at 6pm and 8pm, showcasing the latest That’s Crafty! products. I’m demonstrating the One Day Special featuring stencils, texture paste and greyboard panels ready for your mixed media artwork. The bundle also includes a cracking set of texture stamps.
Find the shows on Hochanda (Freeview 85 (6pm only), Sky 663, or online at hochanda.com). You can watch again via their website and scroll back to show dates on the TV schedule page.
These are the projects I will be demonstrating in today’s shows:
I know I haven’t done the Pick A Stick Challenge for a little while but didn’t realise quite how long ago it was… 2015! I’ve decided to try and do at least one ‘me-project’ each month, and this month was the Pick A Stick art journal challenge. For those that have forgotten the format, ten sticks are chosen at random, each with an instruction as to what to put in or a technique to use. The challenge Facebook group can be found here.
The page ended up darker in tone and emotion that I normally do – the quote was inspired by the raven stencil I used. There are many different things that I would call from the poem, but this is perhaps the darkest. As I was writing it onto the page all I could think of was my road with depression, my ‘black dog’.
I don’t know how much of this art shrine sample was shown on TV last week… I certainly didn’t have enough time to demonstrate how I put it together, so here comes a tutorial to follow if you want to make your own 🙂
I was on your viewing screens last Friday (you can still catch up at hochanda.com until 16th Oct, 8am & 11am) showcasing the latest releases from That’s Crafty! Part of the mega-pack was a bumper pack of greyboard ATCs, and also available were acrylic and MDF ATCs. Combining these with multi surface paints, shimmer paints, Sparklers and Lynne’s new affirmations clear stamp sets, here are the samples I made, some of which I demonstrated on air.
If you’d like a chance to win all of the ATC samples I made, comment on the blog post, and at the end of the month I will pick someone at random to receive them. UPDATE: Congratulations to Doreen, who won the draw.
Following on from yesterday’s post, here are the Christmas demo samples I made for the live Hochanda shows. Unfortunately, we seemed to enter a time warp for the final hour, and there was not much time to go through all the demos I had lined up.
As always, a quiet blog usually means frenetic activity in The Studio. The start of this month has been no different, with not two, but three live hours of craft TV demos to prepare for. And, as usual, there was a press embargo on sharing the products, or the samples, until the live shows aired.
So, without further ado, here are my samples for the Hochanda shows that aired on 18th August 2017. Please let me know if you’d like fuller instructions on how to make any of these, I’ll see what I can do. Later this week, I’ll also do a review of the new That’s Crafty! Multi Surface paints based on what I learnt making the samples.
