An Exciting Day by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone
Tonight, 12th May,  That's Crafty are on Hochanda TV with a fantastic mixed media One Day Special which launches at 6pm with a follow up show at 8pm and then throughout Wednesday at 8am, 12pm & final show at 4pm. If this wasn't exciting enough, for me it gets even more exciting as within these shows you will see the launch of 3 paper packs designed by myself. I have created 3 collections of background papers using paints, sprays, inks etc that can be used for all sorts of projects and I hope you like them.

As part of the design team I got the chance to not only use my own papers but play with all the fabulous products that will feature on todays One Days Special. So ahead of those shows I would like to share the pages from a Craftyboard Long Journal that will be featured on the show.

I began by covering each page with the papers from my background papers, for this journal I have used background set 2. All the craftyboard shapes, again launching in tonights One Day Special, have been coloured using That's Crafty multi purpose paints (watch the show for a great deal).  I have added stamping to the background papers using 2 new stamp sets that are also launching today. The papers will allow you to add stamping, paints in fact most things that you want to throw at them. Everything I have used (apart from the vintage photo and one sentiment) will be on these shows.

Statement was created using one of the alpha stamps from one of the new stamp sets.

Includes craftyboard window and Alpha parts, background stamps and window has been filled with That's Crafty acrylic wax which I love when you apply thickly as it starts to crackle.

2 of the new stamps combined to create the butterflies, new background stamps and craftyboard pieces again painted with That's Crafty Multi Surface paints.

All new craftyboard shapes, the wings painted with multi surface paints and shading added with a grey pencil.

Here I have used the 2nd of the 2 alpha craftyboard sets, and isn't that dragon fly stamp fabulous.

More of the new stamps and craftyboard pieces, painted with gold multi surface paint and aged using chestnut paint.

Craftyboard pieces only on this my final page.

New A5 Stamp sets from That's Crafty used on this project

I hope you like all the new products and if you can't wait they are all available from the website now! But be sure to tune in for the One Day Special to go with these new items. 
Hochanda Sky 673, Freeview 85 & Freesat 817, shows start from 6pm tonight.

Here's What I Used:
That's Crafty Acrylic Wax (wait for the show)
*NEW* That's Crafty Craftyboard Tags (not used on this post)

Hopefully you get chance to watch the shows, have a fabulous crafty week and I will see you all next Tuesday
