Hello to you.
Over the last few months we have had quite a number of exciting things happening at IndigoBlu and I wanted to make sure everyone has had a chance to catch up or at least read about it here.
Kay and Alfie have been out and about with their Dirty Weekend on Tours having lots of Fun and Crafting along the way meeting lots of their lovely customers as well as making new friends. Whilst Kay runs the workshops with help from Lou, Alfie takes care of the Pop Up Craft Shop, which by the way is open to the public as well as to the Workshop folk so if you can't make the whole weekend you can still visit them for a crafty shop.
The Coventry Dirty Weekend is on this Weekend at the Holiday Inn Coventry M6 Jct2 for 2 Fabulous Full Day Mixed Media Workshops led by Kay Halliwell-Sutton. There may still be places if you're interested!
Kay and Alfie are sorting out Venues for next year so if you have ideas of where you would like them to visiot please let them know by leaving your comments on the FB pages or Kays own FB page.
You may also have seen IndigoBlu out and about at the various Craft Shows over the last couple of months. Create it Show, Happy Stampers, and at the Dome in Doncaster where Kay did a live Hochanda show with lots of lovely techniques using the Mega Flakes.
As some of you may already know, Lou Withers has now joined Kay doing some of the IndigoBlu shows on Hochanda.
Lou's first show was to bring us some fabulous New Junk and Disorderly Paint Colours, and beautiful Red Rubber Stamp sets that are IndigoBlu! (as we all know Lou loves her paints), these were Ugly Duckling, Duck Egg and IndigoBlu and we watched some super demos on how to used these paints for painting, stamping, mixing colours together and of course using them on fabric and Rice Paper.
Lou then went on the do her 2nd show on the 8th June at 12pm & 4pm (which you can still catch on line at Hochanda for another week) with Brand New Luscious Pigment Powders, Dragon's Blood, Mermaid Tresses and Unicorn Dreams and some stunning Stencils. These work beautifully in so many ways. Brush them over images that have been stamped with VersaMark or better still IB Flitter Glu, mix them with a little water and you have a paint, mix up a little on your glass mat or similar and press your stamp into it then stamped images on your card, Rice paper etc, mixed them with Fabric Slap-it-on for a Luscious shimmer paint for designs on materials.
The IndigoBlu DT have been showcasing some brilliant projects over the ;last few months from samples for the Hochanda shows to Blog Tutorials and videos.
Did you see the Blog Hop for Fathers Day? Well if not you can check it out here. Don't forget you can still claim a 20% discount off some of the stamps we used up until Sunday 17th. These stamps can be used all year round for Male themed cards so please don't miss out on this Discount. Shop online here.
We really love to hear back from anyone who loves IndigoBlu as much as we do so Julie Atkinson and I, together with Kay are trying to get the "I Love IndigoBlu" Unofficial Facebook Page going again. Kay has very kindly has offered to sponser Giveaways and Challenges in the hopes this will spark peoples interest again. The First Giveaway we have running is on the FB page, (Kay is giving away 3 of the New Ladies 8" canvas panels plus one she has painted herself) now so if you would like to Enter all we are asking you to do is to join I Love IndigoBlu group, invite a friend and share one of your own IB creations with us. You need to hurry though, it ends this weekend!
Kay and Lou have more Hochanda shows coming up over the next half of the year with lots of Gorgeous, eye popping products and I should know as I have seen and am working on samples as we speak for the shows! I'm just going to leave you now with that little teaser now.
