this blurry picture is showing the most gorgeous craft sets that Annis received for her birthday from this shop. There is a stamping set, a stencilling set and a paint by numbers set.
the stencilling set comes with a book of suggestions
and cards showing how to make patterns starting with a single motif
or you can totally do your own thing
it feels like a lesson in textile designing. And there are plenty of the images to work on. In fact, I think once you finish the images you would be ready to make your own. The set comes with the most high quality double ended felt pens with a brush pen at the other end. I can't recommend it enough!
The second set is a stamping set. Again the images are beautiful (my favourite is the tightrope walker above) gorgeous stamps and red, gold and purple stamp pads.
This also comes with a book of suggestions, but you don't have to follow it. I was worried that this wouldn't entertain us (how could I resist trying it!) but it did, it's just as delightful as the first set and we took an hour to complete one picture each. Annis also got a paint by numbers set from the same company and again the images are beautiful and the paints good quality but she hasn't tried it yet so I will blog about it when she has.
