yes today was Ally Pally day, so missed not going yesterday, but Sunday is so much quieter, we actually left early,
a) because my feet hurt
b) we had done it all, and
c) I'd run out of money LOL
SO as requested I have taken some pictures of my day and then some photos of the stash trawl, my good friend Sue manage to spend only £20, gawd knows how, she is far too restrained I feel I must buy more to make up for her, (tee hee)
Anyway, first we hit LB Crafts to see Lin and Sweet Pea, Karen and Mark. Lin made me a great demo tag using fresco paints which I have been desperate to get and today I got some, MWAH ha ha
oops forgot to get a piccie of Sweet Pea, now I do have a stunning video of her from Artsy crafty, but not quite sure how to load it, have no fear though sweet pea, it will appear on here one day..
Also managed to catch up with Minxy, I accosted her to see her tattoo, its the Gorjuss Guardian Angel, such a great image, (peeking out from under her sleeve) then asked if she was Minxy and yay she was, so we had a photo taken together
then took some photos of Hels (Sheridan) demoing, she was very popular though so only managed a quick hello with her, apparently she hates having her piccie taken, but I think this is a nice one, hope she agrees..
then a shot to show how high up we were
I have been going to Ally Pally for about 6 years now and it is always a fab weather, so If you fancy getting married in April, pick the weekend of the Stamping show, hmmm now Ive said that Ive jinxed it for next year.
Now what you have all been waiting for my purchases, I got all the rest of the Distress stains, cos I love them so, some more DI's,only 2 more to go and Ive completed the set, In the background is the tag Lin made for me, and I was very good and only got 5 of the paints,they are so lush, highly recommend them, the texture hammer and a brill huge stencilling brush and pens for my silhouette
Next up is the stamps I bought, I ummed and ahhed about buying the Tim sewing set but I do so love that dress form, the Bo bunny ones were in the sale and I thought they would be great for backgrounds to add texture
Some more of those frames from my last post, lots of new stencils, modelling film, mask sheets and some humongous tags, stickers for bottle caps, which Lin demoed for me.
And finally some tools, adornements and metal yummies.
So I now have enough stash to make some gorgeous art, not much time this week as going to be working full time in London, so probably just sleeping and working this week, but next weekend it will be time to play.
have a great week everyone, mwah.
