Good morning one and all. Hope this finds all your ticketys boo on Day 3 of John's launch. Yup, I'm like buses with 3 coming along at once lol!
Some more welcomes are in order so thank you to all new visitors and to Lynda, Albright of Diss and h.12 evans for pressing the "follow" button.
As I am now approaching 150 followers, I shall offer up another paddle prize for when we reach 150. I'll pop a picture on tomorrow's post.
Now, I know some of the ladies who have been plotting to ram raid my garden for my wisterias may have seen the title of this post and got excited thinking I was growing something else of interest but the pot is of the terracotta variety. . . . . . sorry to disappoint gals lol!!!
A plain pot, painted with satin wood paint (it was a tin I'd had knocking around from decorating a couple of years back . . . . . what can I say, I'm tight lol!!!), rim coated in gilding polish and one of John's masks stencilled around the bottom, again using the gilding polish (a tricksy procedure as its not a flat or straight object).
To finish off, one of John's stamps also decorates the rim. . . . . .tricksy again, stamping on a curved surface.
Small terracotta pot from B & Q (21cm dia £1.40)
Satin Wood paint (but any will do)
Cosmic Shimmer Mint gilding polish
John Next Door Quattro Stars mask
John Next Door Autumn Flowers stamp
Memento Dew Drop Teal Zeal ink pad
If you wanted to use it outside, a couple of coats of clear varnish should seal it.
Hopefully, its given you another idea of how to use the stamps and masks, other than on cards.
Well, what an exciting British GP, especially the latter stages. Brought back fond memories of the atmosphere (and hailstones!!!) from last year. Hope Jackie and Wendy got to watch it. I won't comment on the winner lol!
Wasn't a well girlie on Saturday but better yesterday. Can't complain though at one bad day in the past 2 weeks.
That's all for today folks. Hope you can join me again tomorrow for day 4.
P.s. . . . I just wanted to clarify, I've got John's stamps and masks only. I haven't got the media plates (though I shall probably be buying them, even though I'm not a stamper) and my stamping is all commando as I haven't got a stamping press either but all blemishes and smudges are entirely intentional lol!!!
