a little more play from yesterday

A new set of Stylish Stencils arrived yesterday - it is exciting opening all these parcels. I thought I would have a play with them and Tee Juice pens. Ian was so efficient he got all the new stencils on the web before I had time to play with them. I have been diligently tidying the studio - ho ho - well just cleared the centre of the big table so I have a large surface to work on but I am proud to announce that I did clear it again at the end of the day.

This is the Mums stencil - on Khadi rag paper - using Tee Juice pens - the fat ones rubbed over the stencil and outlined with the fine ones. I know they are designed for fabric but I thought I would test them out on such textured paper.

Then I tried them on polycotton - really like the effect. So easy to use - and you just heat set with an iron.

Last night we went to Cantina 663 for a wonderful dinner - the food is so lovely and we felt we had been working hard. I spent the first hour of the day at the warehouse doing more work - nearly there.

Julie - the Cottage Garden threads are Australian - this is the second lot and Pam's colour shading and blending is fantastic. Big job for Ian to get them all on the web coming up.

Crikey Dale, more must haves, I love these but sadly they will have to wait, I think!

Insightful post. Thanks. I love your new stencils!

I love those stencils Dale - they'll be very popular. The fabric pens look good too. Glad you treated yourselves to a nice meal - after all that hard work and with more to follow I reckon you are both entitled.

Thanks Dale. I shall have to wait for Ian to list them all and then come shopping :o) The colours are stunning and irresistible (don't tell my DH!)
