Crafting with Barbara Gray
Celebrate the Clarity-Pergamano marriage with new Groovi tools, plates and more to create an embossed spring scene
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?!
