See the special offer at the end of this post…
Were you one of the many that got yourself an adults colouring book when the craze hit? Perhaps you’re like me and started doing a couple of pages, then left it and went onto other things when you realised just how loooonnnggg it takes to complete an adults page? Maybe you need motivation? Maybe you need the blender pen! (Come see me about that one)
There’s a great colouring network group on Facebook for the Midwest, go check them out, they post regular challenges and share work. I hardly post there, but I regularly stalk the page.
Because this page existed and kept showing up in my newsfeed, I was reminded of that book and pencils I just HAD to have… and to get it out. I actually love colouring in, some of my pages done whilst in hospital will be at the end of this post, coloured with Prima Pencils and a Blender Pen. It might just be the inspiration you needed, like it was for me. Either way, it’s a great page for Midwest Colourists and you might make a new friend or two.
Anyhow, go join up, click “like” here and there and maybe you’ll be inspired too. You’ll find them here at Geraldton and Midwest Colouring

When Emily came to town I couldn’t wait to give her these sets of watercolours, check out what we created with them.
Watercolour Confections: just like a tin of sweet confections our new watercolour tins are filled with wonderful, delightful watercolour pans in a decadent array artist-grade, high quality, and highly pigmented watercolour pans. Each tin includes flip-out mixing trays and superb features for the artist on the go! Available in Decadent Pies, Tropicals, and The Classics. (Psst…Decadent Pies has four metallic pans included!)
We had fun in our art journals, the colours are so vibrant and luscious. I can’t wait to include these in a class somehow.
Available at The Scrapbook House
Have a colourful day
The most beautiful stories are always the tales about you and me. Prima’s new “Tales of You & Me” collection is all about the wonderful stories of all the special people in your life. Floral patterns, vintage designs, and a sweet colour palette make this collection a must have! Once you see the fantastic embellishments you’ll find this line perfect for all those shabby-chic, romantic, and sweet projects you have lined up.
We are using this range in our first class for Term 2 with a beautiful page designed by Celeste. It has a beautiful chipboard frame from Dusty Attic which we will be heat embossing with white powder and features a stunning pleated paper design.
Grab these beautiful products as soon as you can – they won’t last long!
This week we introduced the texture tool by Ranger, and our students ran it through the wet gold paint to create their background.
I can’t wait to try these out on texture paste, I think the scalloped one would look terrific!
Once the texture tool had done it’s job, done white Dylusions were splattered about, then left to dry whilst we worked on the rest of the layout.
I really enjoy my classes, this Thursday night class is small and relaxed and I sure have missed teaching these past months. I appreciate the ladies who spend some time with me creating, I am very lucky to be with such nice people. It’s a hard job I know, but someone’s gotta do it.
We have quite a few of these kits available as “takeaway kits” or if you have a group of 5 or more who would like to get together I can arrange to teach it on a day/night that suits you.
Have great weekend… I hope you get the chance to get crafty.
Distress Inks are clearly our favourites, they are so versatile and you’ll see us using them in most classes, and many of us have most colours… so we don’t need more… but oh my oh my, check this video out at CHA 2015 we have the man himself, Tim Holtz, telling us about the new Distress program and showing off the newest color of 2015, cracked pistachio.
Cracked Pistachio – I NEED it. xxx
You know you want it too… and we have it instore
Viv’s Prima Doll Cards are so sweet. We had fun in class making this cute trio and as our card making kit has instructions and the stamp too we can take it home and make more!
We coloured the hair and skin using a waterbrush and distress inks, aged Mahogany,Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade for the hair tones, and Tea Dye for the skin and edges of the patterned papers. Waterbrushing the dolls give that lovely blended soft look.
Have a sweet day!
Over 400 rolls of Washi tape rolled into our store today, it had Sharon and I in a dilemma… How much can we smuggle home? Keep reading if you’d like a get a couple of free rolls for yourself.
So… What’s your favourite use for Washi? I was thinking it would be nice for gift wrapping (picturing Kraft wrap, bakers twine and matching Washi)
If you have an idea… Leave me a note or a link in the comments in the next week and next Wednesday night I will (randomly) choose someone to get some Washi sent to them! (Australia only please) or, if you’d like to buy some, get on in to our store quick!
Looking forward to your comments and ideas.
