Evening All,...

Just a really quick post,...

If you are trying to find me on Facebook, you need to search for Phill Martin and add me as a friend there, not my Phill M Martin one, 

Just letting you know as I've just logged on to my other FB page (Phill M Martin one) and there were 107 friend requests lol... I rarely use that account so I wouldn't know you were there!

You'll get to hear more from me on my Phill Martin page :-)

See you there!

Hope that makes sense!

Happy Crafting!

Special 'one off' Box Frame Workshop....

Hi Everyone

I'm just writing to let you know that on Sunday, 15th July I am having a special one off 'Box Fame' workshop at my shop.

This will be (hopefully) a 3 hour workshop (but will probably longer! lol) where we will be painting, stamping, colouring, crackling, glazing, inking, punching and so much more to create a special box frame from scratch (apart from the frame itself, although we will be painting ad stamping it! lol)

The cost of this workshop is £20pp and this includes the box frame.

We will start at 10 and finish (maybe) at 1pm 

I have added a photo of one that I did last year to give you an idea.

I already have names on my list and I am only having a maximum of 12 people so if you want to join me, let me know quickly.

I am doing a Christmas one, but you don't have to (I just think it's a lovely gift!)

Anyhoo... let me know quickly as I don't imagine I will be long filling the spaces!

Happy Crafting!

My pro marker tutorial workshop ...

Evening Everyone (again)

I know, 2 posts within minutes of each other, but I promise I haven't been on the energy drinks lol!

As you may, or may not, know, I had my second pro-marker tutorial workshop at the shop yesterday.... 
what a fabulous day we had!

The focus yesterday was on characters, hair, skin, clothing and the like (all the useful areas!)

I just thought I''d pop a couple of the images on here that we did (for the benefit of those that came who are not on Facebook or Twitter) so you can check back and look at what we did and hopefully it remind you how we did them.

I've put a photo on the the huge fairy image too so hopefully it will give you some inspiration :-)

I know we simply ran out of time (after finishing an hour late!) so my next Pro Marker tutorial workshop will be based on scenery, sky, water etc...

I'll let you all know when I have found a spare day to get this booked in!

Anyhoo, thanks again to all of you that came, you were amazing!

Happy Crafting!

Create & Craft Shows this week....

Good Evening Everyone

I hope the miserable weather hasn't drained all your crafty mojo!
I, personally, make the most of the bad weather by getting loads of crafting done! 
It's the best time to craft because we're not looking outside at lovely sunshine wishing we were out in it! lol

I'm just popping this post on to let you know that I am back on Create and Craft with Serif this week.. :-)

Thursday 14th at 12noon and 5pm

I can say that these brand new digikits are by a BRAND NEW designer and she is soooo talented!
I love the kits already!

It's a bonus for me, getting them sooner lol!

I'm just playing (I mean working) with them now, prepping my shows and I am spoilt for choice!

I'll tell you more about this fabulously talented lady on the shows!

Hope you can watch!

Happy Crafting!

New Workshop...

Good Afternoon Everyone

I'm just letting you know that I am planning on starting a new Wednesday evening class at the beginning of July...

This is because I have so many people waiting for spaces on my Thursday evening class (which is full!) so I thought a new group on a Wednesday evening would be nice :-)

If you are interested, please let me know asap, I limit spaces to 12 maximum and I already have some filled.

It will be 6-8pm each Wednesday and it's £8.50 each.


Happy Crafting!

Finally! New Paper Set :-)

Good Evening Everyone

Well, what a dreary, wet day today has been (still is!) 
Typical bank holiday weather! I hope the rain hasn't spoiled any Jubilee celebrations you had planned..

I have finally had time to finish off a new set of papers I have been working on... I looooove them!, but naturally I would as I designed them lol... I just hope you love them too!

As always, I have designed 2 sets of background papers that compliment each other perfectly... 
I'm a stickler for co-ordination!

I have called this new set my 'Damask Florals and Washed Out Damask' set...

There are 17 lush colours in each set, giving you a total of 34 papers in truly stunning, yet, useful colours.
As a crafter, I always design papers I know I can actually use and then created a colour palette that is yummy!

The full set is available now on my website for a measly 4 squid and is available for you to download straight away... here's a quick link Designed By Phill Background Papers 

Being as it's a dreary, wet day.... here's a little freebie of each design to give you some crafty sunshine :-)

Happy Crafting!
