Groovi plates meet Perga­mano in Bar­bara’s beau­ti­ful parch­ment craft card

Iwould like to in­tro­duce you to a won­der­ful new col­lec­tion of A5 Groovi Po­etry Plates. You will see that the beau­ti­ful bor­ders and frames of­fer su­perb and in­ter­change­able de­signs to stand alone, or go with the verses. To me, that’s the magic of Groovi: you mix el­e­ments and im­ages from this plate and that, and you be­come your own de­signer. Each piece is an orig­i­nal. It’s yours. I like that.

Here is a sim­ple spring scene which com­bines el­e­ments from a cou­ple of the Po­etry Plates, in­tro­duces some Perga­mano tools and even adds our Clar­ity brush trick with ink pads!

And, more good news... at the end of last year, the own­ers of Perga­mano in Hol­land asked us at Clar­ity if we would like to buy them! It was a nat­u­ral step for­ward, be­cause now we can be­gin to develop our tra­di­tional parch­ing skills in con­junc­tion with our up­beat Groovi de­signs, and even cre­ate new tools and plates to com­ple­ment each other. We’re start­ing by of­fer­ing ba­sic tool sets, as be­low, each with a guide by Mas­ter Perga­mano Tu­tor Linda Wil­liams. Aren’t we lucky to have her on the Clar­ity Team?!
