Assemblage- I love it

I need to get out some random stuff and play with assemblage again.
This has always been one of my favorite pieces.

I should do more of this type of work.

News an updates!

New catalog items and convention updates!

We have added the thin Easy Mount that many of you have requested. We have also added the Glue Glider and refills. The Heat It Tool is back after a very long absence. I'm sooooo glad to have it again. It's my very favorite heat tool to use with the OPALS embossing enamels. We also have some new (and awesome) shapes of foil melts. In addition to the Frozen OPALS, we have Pearl, Gold, Silver and Rainbow. All the new Spellbinder dies are available at great prices. We've added some new books: one on Polymer Clay using lots of Krafty Lady Art Moulds© and 2 books on Friendly Plastic (which looks sooo very wonderful on our OPALS embossing enamels. I did some nice things using Friendly Plastic in the Krafty Lady Art Moulds, also. At forthcoming conventions, we'll have Friendly Plastic available and tools that go with it. As usual, shipping is just $5.00 regardless of your order size.

Check out our products page for anything you might have missed.

We'll be at the Las Vegas Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Show this coming weekend. It's the 10th anniversary show and there will be lots of vendors, door prizes, classes and more. Stop in and see us. I think it's going to be our last convention in Las Vegas for a long time to come.

Judith from our list brought me, along with her Found Object Challenge Artwork, a copy of Metal Clay Artist Magazine. On pages 8 and 9, there is a very nice article about our own very creative Jen Lowe.

Hope to see many of you this weekend. Phyllis from Las Vegas will be demoing on Sunday. If you haven't met Phyl, now's your chance. Crystal will be demoing on Saturday. She and her mom demo'd for us 2 years ago and did a marvelous job. I'll be demoing the Spellbinder Dies and will have a really nice make and take for you using the Ultimate Crafters Companion and those wonderful dies. I'll also be teaching a starbook class. We're going to have a great time.

Fantasy Film and Fashion Flakes

I've been working on this chest for a while now. I think it is starting to work. :)
You can see more details and a previous version on my blog.

I'm really loving the Crackle Glossy Accents over the Fantasy Film. It is the only crackle medium I've found that really works well over non porous surfaces.

I'm also remembering just how much I LOVE Fashion Flakes!
