Happy very early Monday morning to you all… Monday doesn’t hold the same dread for me as most people…I work shifts so it’s a 50/50 chance I’ll be working. Same with any other day. However I do still enjoy the occasional lazy Sunday (one out of every two in fact) and this Sunday, I’ve been getting back into my Groovi parchment crafting.
Groovi was one of the first crafts I got into after Barbara Gray very kindly gifted me with the starter kit (every job has it’s perks) but I’ve been out of practice for a while.
I’ve recently joined the Clarity Gold Club, so I thought it would be the ideal time to throw myself back into it, and this was the result:
As Barbara always encourages when she demonstrates, I used elements of different plates to get the result. For this one, I used plates from the wonderful Jayne Nestoreko range, the three wrens plate and the landscape plate from the starter kit. To colour the image, I used Spectrum Noir colourblend pencils and backed it onto a paper from the Northern lights paper pad, also from Claritystamp.
This was my first dabble with perforating around the edges, which is something I really need practice on, both this and my white work. Nevertheless I’m pretty pleased with the finished piece especially as I’m so out of practice.
Groovi is a bloody wonderful system, perfect for impatient people like me who like instant results. If you’re looking for a new relaxing hobby, I can’t recommend this enough.
Thank for popping by,
