Welcome to July Clarity crafters!
June was a busy month for Clarity and Barbara with the launch of the Groovi system, a Christmas show on Create and Craft and a week in France with the design team.
Did you follow Barbara's blog to see what they were all up to? Here's a photo from the murder mystery night, can you name all of the design team although there are a few red herrings too!
Just a reminder that Barbara is on our TV screens on Create and Craft between 09.00 and 11.00 on Sunday 5th July. As usual there will be a live chat on the Clarity facebook page with all the positive chat whilst Barbara is crafting away on the TV. Make sure you've got a cuppa ready and waiting so that you don't have to leave the sofa!
Here's the theme for our new challenge which will run throughout July:
(using Clarity stamps/stencils ONLY)
We know you all love these challenges as it gives you artistic licence to create anything you like, as long as it's using Clarity stamps, stencils or the Groovi system of course.
It would be great to see some of your parchment designs along with mixed media, canvases, altered art and card making.
What theme will you choose?
If you would like a bit of inspiration, here are the challenge design team with their creations.
Please remember to read the rules to avoid your entry being disqualified.
Good luck with the challenge!!
(Guest Designer - winner from challenge 27)
Hi, I'm Fern, I live in Crawley and even though I'm only 22 I've been crafting in one way or another for most of my life. It started with finger painting with my Mum and it grew from there. We've now had a go at most crafts and enjoy doing a variety of things.
I'm relatively new to Clarity, having only discovered it a year or two ago, but I've quickly expanded my collection of stamps and stencils and love testing out the new techniques Barbara demonstrates. I really enjoyed the Clarity Open Days at Crowborough recently as well as the ones last year too. I'm already looking forward to next years now!
Being such a broad theme for this month I did find it challenging to think of what to do, but even though my design is quite simple, I still think it's really effective.
Good luck with your entries!
Here's Fern's guest designer card for the current challenge:
