Playing with Parchment

Hello Crafters

She Sells Parchment (3)

Just a quick drop in tonight, as it has been a very busy day, with it being Dad’s day, and having family round. It’s always good to catch up and enjoy family company., but that means that I haven’t got as much time as I would have liked to spend with you!

So what have you all been up to? I had a project planned to share with you but it didn’t get received by the recipient yet, so don’t want to spoil the surprise, so I will share with you next time, so today there is some little projects I have been trying out.

A few years ago I was busy with making Parchment cribs, which use to take at least 5 days of hard graft, although they did look beautiful when finished,

but that was done by mapping out the pattern with a white pen, and then embossing and shading with the parchment tools, but Clarity has now bought out the Groovi system, that takes all the fussy mapping and pattern tracing away, and leaves you the fun bit of just creating.

So I have been dabbling and playing with the Groovi board, and I followed the directions to make my first…..

Groovi Daisies (2)

…then took inspiration from that and tried again….

…then went it alone (I know, so brave!), and here it is…..

Green Wren Parchment (1)

They are not a quick fix idea, but every single one will be different, and it certainly is a relaxing way to spend an evening…(and get away from the football and the EU discussions!)

So all in all I was quite pleased, here’s a few mix and match of them…

I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening, and all those dad’s have a wonderful loved feeling tonight! In a couple of  weeks I have something very special lined up and can’t wait to share!

See you soon
