Last night we launched the Elusive Images Christmas range of stamps at Graphicus – you can see the full range on the Elusive Images blog. It was an exclusive invitation only event and we had a lovely group of ladies who turned up and enjoyed David’s turkey sandwiches and mince pies while seeing all the new stock that has been arriving in the shop from America this week.
Lynn and I were demonstrating, though I hardly got a chance to because nearly every single person there wanted to know how I had made this little piece of artwork here. Well after I had explained the first time, there was some consternation that the latest must have craft gadget costs somewhere between £5,600 and £11,000 depending which model you require. However, fear not, we have canny customers at Graphicus. Someone pointed out that if you don’t happen to have an Aga in your kitchen, you could use an upturned iron. Well, ya know, I’m a stickler for quality, so I reckon you really should start saving for a craft Aga myself. I’m thinking of having talks with their executive board and getting them to bring out a duck egg blue and chocolate one, or better yet, one covered in an Artylicious design – like ‘her hammer’!! We wouldn’t be able to do free shipping though, not even to Guild members, sorry!
Anyway, how I arrived at this finished piece was a bit of a long story, so in the end, Adrian videoed me talking about it. It curled very badly and has been in the book press for about three weeks and I almost forgot about it. I’m pleased I managed to get this photo of it today in a brief moment of sunshine, it really shows off the perfect pearls on it.
I would love to show you the video, but it would seem that Adrian was so excited when he bought the new video camera a while ago, he forgot to get a lead that actually connects it to the computer. So we’ll have to wait for Mr Amazon to deliver a lead before we can download the footage and see if there’s anything actually usable!
