A story of a Sunday...

Yesterday, I left home in the middle of a heavy rain episode in the early morning. The tail of a hurricane named Bertha, no less. It was a horrid trip down the M5, but the end destination kept me motivated and on track. I was on my way to The palace of the Purple PrinPurple Palacecess. I am lucky enough to have known Kathy for six years and she is one of my valued friends - both as one of the most knowledgable artists I know and as a fantastic fun friend.

I received the warmest of welcomes when I arrived, as usual, and we immediately got settled in Kathy's set up craft room. I have failed to mention all I took with me was one dictionary, one embossing folder I had kidnapped last visit and my journal. I can't tell you how freeing it was to sit down and go with the flow! I recommend the journey to you.

Kathy had just purchased a set of Brushos, not a new product, but new to us. We set of playing in our dictionaries having picked a colour and that page. Kathy obviously went with purple and I chose red. We then had a few pieces of watercolour paper - as I forgot mine!!! We sprinkled, mixed and squirted gloss medium, Brushos, modelling paste, mod podge, shimmer sprays and...


None of it is finished but it was huge fun and I learnt a lot! If you want to know more see Kathy's wonderful blog.

Unfortunately for him, Mr K could not go to his planned day due to the weather however that was a bonus for us, as he cooked lunch and generally looked after us.

Thanks to Mr and Mrs K for the day. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs Cherry
