So last weekend I went to the Stamperama Show in Stevenage. Not too far away about 40-45mins to get there. Its not very big but some great stalls though 😃
Tiny bit of Mum there on the left with her push along thingy…. Or her ‘wheels’ as we call it!!
Since I bought my new car I feel more confident to travel further afield now and driving it is so much easier as getting in and out of my old Mondeo (now gone to the big scrapyard in the sky) was a problem. My Nissan Qashqai has a higher driving position and I can sit much more comfortably too.
Sorry I digress…. So I did post some photos of my Haul up on FB along with my first video on my new phone. I am hoping to start making videos for my You Tube channel but got lots of learning to do first. Now I have my new laptop I will need to work out how to do voice-overs, I tried to talk through my Haul but I wasn’t very good and kept making mistakes so just filmed it with no sound…. I know it will take time so hope one day soon it will happen.
Hoping this works
This is everything I bought
Stampers Grove with stamps etc.
I got the Tim Holtz Flutter stamp set…. I was so happy as I got it at the bargain price of £20… Was £26.99. That was one of 2 on my list… The Entomology set is the other….
Finally got some alcohol inks they have been on my list for aaaaaages!! With some alcohol felt pads for my blending tool. I thought I would try out some of the Fresco Chalk Acrylic paints, so just got 3 colours to start with, a stamp set (also a bargain) £16 instead of usual price of £19.99. 😃😃😃
The compass stencil was something I wanted a while ago by Aall & Create and a Versamark embossing pen.
This was my main Haul and I could of bought more but had to stop…. 🤔🤔
Next I went to Honey Doo Crafts
The oxide inks where a very reasonable price so just bought a few I knew I didn’t have. Some mica powder in silver and copper and a few other items.
Then came the Metallic Waxes …. They were top of the list too.
They were Alchemy Wax by Imagination crafts in copper, bronze, Wild Orchid (purple) and the Pink one too. Couldn’t get silver but I will… They were on the stand of Jo Channon who is a Powertex tutor…. That looks cool but I didn’t get any though… might consider a class with her in the future. I did get some rust powder to try out and a couple of Distress Inks most of my inks are the small size but I thought I would get the Gathered Twigs as they didn’t have any Vintage Photo… Also some Squeezed Lemonade (yellow) I don’t have a yellow.
I’m doing pretty well so far….
I picked up some lovely papers by Ken Oliver called Watercolour florals they are gorgeous I’ve just today used some of those for a journal I’m making for a friend but I can’t show you yet as she doesn’t know about it. I will show you when it’s done and she has received it.
Finally I got a couple of laser cut wood pieces in a Steampunk style..
I might use them on a journal or maybe a canvas assemblage piece I think….that’ll be for me I reckon!! 😄😄😄
I’ve already had a play with the Butterfly stamps…. They are so cool…
Got my other ink colours out but I can also use Distress inks but they are not Archival and can still move with water.
Well my holiday is in 2 weeks (can’t wait) haven’t had a holiday in about 10yrs and gotta decide what is coming with me….. Butterflies are definitely coming 😃😃😃
Thanks for visiting…. I will let you know how my videoing journey goes…. Its a bit scary but I want to give it a try 🤨🤨. I must be mad!!!
Till next time
