In the mean time to keep me out of mischief I have been doing some crafting, decorating a mdf box.
Lightly pat the screen with kitchen paper, remove screen and dry with heat tool.
Reposition screen and lightly spray again. Repeating this process a couple more times and then spray lightly with Starfish for added depth.
This picture does not show the beautiful shimmer finish. I am now going to add some embellishment. So watch this space! LOL.
Materials used: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Vintage Pink, Starfish & Glimmer Screens Fanciful Stencils. Blank box to be decorated, I used a mdf stationary box from the studio, it is just the right size for C6 cards/notelets and envelopes.

Make yourself a coffee and do some blog hopping it is day 12 Tim's site the 12 tags of Christmas and then make time, lots of time and click on the link above and pop over to Mad Imaginations. This is truly a fabby site with step by step projects for Fimo-ers, card makers and scrapbookers alike with lots of very useful techniques. It is well worth a look.

Booooo Hooooo :-( last day tomorrow. Tim is so inspirational the techniques and materials he uses are fantastic. The tags will left on his blog and available to view for a while yet. If you are wanting to try some of the techniques and don't have the products we stock Ranger; ink pads, distress ink and distress paint, acrylic dabbers, mini misters etc and we are hoping to get another delivery very soon as stocks are low, I wonder why?
The new timetable will be ready towards the end of next week, I am just in the middle of planning and preparing the new projects to be included.
In the afternoon we had two projects on at the same time!! yes two, a six inch version of the mini fourway folding book which is a good size for your family pics and Joanne who missed our Christmas workshop made one of the lovely Christmas tree books.
Tonight we made some quick Christmas cards with the 'Rose Tinted Christmas' papers from Dove Craft and 'Wrapped Wishes' papers from Daisy Bucket. Let me tell you I shall be making a lot of these quick cards over the next few days as I have barely made any for our family and friends yet, and as the last posting day looms and gets nearer and nearer the cards will get quicker and quicker LOL.
Fimo Bev is back in the studio again on Monday evening making Fimo Christmas Angels. Bev's classes are very popular and she will be back in the New Year on a regular basis. The 1st Fimo class next year is Sat 17th Jan 2009 and the theme will be cute card toppers.
