Paperific is coming to town...
Normally I don't start humming Christmas tunes till December - but with Paperific around the corner, whats a girl to do. We have four new stamp sets released with your favourite designs in much larger sizes. these are fantastic, my favourite being the Christmas set (the snowflakes in particular). The look book has also come back home looking spiffy from the publishers, and i love it. Much more manageable that a great big scrapbook album!!! Finally, I always hinted we would have something else at the stand - well wait no longer. For those of you who have been following Somerset Studios, Cloth Paper Scissors, Altered Books, Claudine Helmuth, Michael De Mang and all other talented artists - they all use one kind of paint/mediums etc - Golden Paints. These are fabulous fluid acrylics that flow onto paper effortlessly like a glaze. The are highly pigmented and dry quickly. The best thing is you can overlay the colours in thin layers and create out of this world results. My favourites are the Irridescent bronze and the Micaceous Iron Oxide (which actualy has iron particals in it and feels like sandpaper). Finally we have a heap of their wonderful mediums to sell as well including a fabo introduction kit which contains soft gel (gloss) , regular gel (semi gloss), heavy gel (matte), light moulding paste, coarse pumice gel and clear tar gel. inside the box you receive a sample chart with ideas on how to use the mediums. For those of you who have never used gel medium before - it is a great all round glue for collaging papers and heavier materials (metal charms etc). I know these will go quickly - so make sure you stop at the stand and get the colours you want asap!!!
Will fill you in on more Paperific details tomorrow.
