So here we are packing to go to France with Barbara and the Design Team and Dave! I have no words to describe how excited I am. I have no real pre-conceptions of the trip because with this little lot who knows what will happen? I will be keeping a little secret book of events with my "stix" characters. Did I tell you about these little characters?? NO??? well you would never guess it but I actually can not draw!! So if I want to show an idea all I can do is Match Stick People. A few years ago I used to dress these people or "theme" them so a better understanding would be had of the drawing - Hahem???
Anyway I was trying to design some Tags etc and was drawing my Match Stick people (I can't even draw them in proportion!) then I remembered I used to dress them. So coming home from the Lake District a few weeks ago, where I had bought a new black pad and white pens from the Derwent Pencil Factory I played around with a few characters, and it came about that I decided to call them my "Stix" people. Double meaning, Stick people, and Stix - being the start of a sentence. i.e. stix ike glue, stix together, stix by her etc etc.
And there a whole storybook was born, I will draw them all in this book and I will record events - especially funny events that happen, and I will record our trip to France!! So just a bit of silly fun, I hope you will bear with me. (I secretly think that Barbara will be snapping my hand off to make these into stamps)!!!!! do you?? I can't wait till I get Jo Rice to pose so I can get a picture of those Tassles once and for all, and Lynne Hammond, Mmmmmm ??? will have to do a bit of masking off for her won't I?? Where should I put that hand?
Right I can't sit around here all day playing silly buggers I must get myself all sorted for tomorrow, See you bright and early Lynne!! xx Have a good week everyone. I will leave you with a Blog of Today's TV's samples for Clarity Stamp before I go. Don't forget to check out the New Claity Stencil Club and the Gold Club too. xxx
Have a good week everyone.
