Free Promarker demo day at Strikes (High Legh Garden Centre) 9th June

Evening all!  Sorry for bit of absence but I've been soooo busy!  I've been studying the finer points of personalisation after having some direction from a friend so I'm raring to go, just need someone to give me a job!!!  Not easy trying to get back into work after a 5 year break but I have 10 years experience before that so surely that must count for *something*

Also between that I volunteered to do some face painting in aid of the Shannon Bradshaw Trust which provides help and support for poorly children and their families.  Having only really painted my own and my kids faces before I've been practicing like a demon for the last 2 weeks so hopefully can pull it together for the event tomorrow (2nd June) which is from 12pm at The Saracens Head in Warburton near Lymm so if you're in the area pop along as theres lots of entertainment on for the kids.

And finally I am doing a FREE PROMARKER DEMO DAY at Strikes in Knutsford aka High Legh Garden Centre.  If you're fairly local you will have found this place and found what a great place for crafty stuff it is.  I'll be available from 10-4 on Saturday 9th June to pop in any time and ask any burning questions or have a go at improving your skills.

Here's some of the samples I'll have with me as I'll be doing the new Gorjuss Girls range and Crafters Companion stamps amongst others.

This one will show you how you can improve on a design with a bit of practice....

This is basic colouring, one colour for skin, dress and hair and how somebody new would likely start out.

This one is adding more skin tone and some pleats which is only a short step from above pic

This one is adding a lot more detail on the hair and dress and suitable for those who've mastered the basic skills and want to take that next step

And one of the crafters companion stamps which will be made into a card, I'll also be using this in the demos too to show you grass, clouds and getting the shine on that pot ;)


I also made a card yay!  Ths image is by A day for Daisies and is called Pearls in my hair.  I saw it on Rina's blog a few weeks back and bought it and I showed the coloured image on the promarker paradise group on facebook a couple of weeks back and I think a couple bought it, she's lovely :)

I'd like to enter this into.....


And finally some of my face painting efforts haha!  Well cant say I dont try, I'm not a natural painter but I enjoy it and its for a good cause :)

PS I hate new blogger, it keeps turning my pics around!!!
