Alcohol Inks Anonymous!!

No ACMC hasn't changed it's name! Just the title of tomorrow's workshop. We haven't used our alcohol inks for a while so we decided to bring them out again and as always you can revisit familiar techniques or have a go at a few new ones. Alcohol inks work best on non-porous surfaces, so tomorrow night Michelle will be showing you how to create the psychedelic tiles above. She will also show you how to ink up washers to create pendants for making into necklaces.

I'll be in the card corner, where you can experiment with dropping the ink directly on to acetate or glossy paper, then either letting it do it's "thing" or blowing it with straws to create floral designs. Or you can experiment with "painting" with the ink to create landscape pictures. 

It could be messy so you might want to bring an apron!

Ashtead Village Day 2014

Ashtead Village Day is fast approaching. You can find us at stand A3, on the left hand side just after you enter the field from Barnett Wood Lane entrance. We will have our usual selection of hand made cards, gifts, jewellery and sweetie treats for Father's Day and other occasions. Come and see us if you are planning to attend - the weather forecast is good - 20 degrees and sunny!

For Father's Day it has to be a football theme...

And where there's football there's usually beer... or is there? Our beer treat cups are suitable for Dads with a sweet tooth and they are non alcoholic.

And there's something for the kids too - Frozen goodies for the girls...

And Minecraft Creepers for the boys...

Should be a good day.
