The triptych that never was....

When you're demo'ing you chat to the lovely peeps sat in front of you, answer questions etc and the projects you create can change as you're demo'ing because it answers questions.....

* A customer asked about what Distress Inks she should buy first ("all of them!" is the obvious answer to that question!) but as she was new to Distress I suggested she buy the colours she likes - which were blues and purples - so I started working in those colours on a tag....
*  I'm demo'ing my mini stamps, so I stamped 3 of the text blocks...
*  somebody asked about painting with Distress .. so I painted the detail on the images using Distress Inks....
*  I carried on with my plan of a triptych tag & laid all three text blocks on the tag one by one - "I prefer the tag with just one text block on" said a customer because " you can see the lovely background" - lots of  nodding from the others.. OK, lol, just one it is then:

& this was great because it allowed me to use the stamped images in other ways...

*  one of the two text block images was used to create a card:....

.... and the other on a mat & layered tag (top middle image)

Demo'ing by comittee! lol

(nb working in blue (faded jeans) and purple (dusty concord) with accents of green (peeled paint)  - I don't often work with greens & purples and I forget what a lovely colour combination it can be...)


  1. Beautiful work, Jo! Looks like you had a load of fun.

  2. FABBYLISCIOUS projects - wish I was a bit closer to Birds in the Barn too!


  3. Wonderful committee demos! Wish I could come see you demo too - your stamps are gorgeous (and what you do with them is beautiful)
