Less is more!

Hi everyone! I am gutted last week I missed Less Is More for the 1st time since it started!

I wish I could have brought them all home with me.

Hi everyone the sun is shining once again here in Durham! 
Thankfully it has cooled down to a bearable heat! 
It's time for another WOYWW 218 I'm afariad it's a bit like deja vu lol I am still playing with clay. I have been using some Cosmic Shimmer micro paints to colour them and some sprays.
If you don't no what WOYWW is it's where we get to go snoop on other crafty work desks!
So pop over to Stamping Ground and join in the fun!
I have found the clay really easy to use.
I have played with Martha Stewart, DAS & Cloud Clay.
I prefer the consistency of the Martha Stewart & Cloud Clay. DAS clay is more economical.
It's easy to colour the clay I bought some MS coloured blocks of clay but to be honest you can use your Alcohol markers & paints ect.
I have bought quite a few moulds from China (Ebay UK) HERE. They are really cheap and free P&P. They came within two weeks but they can take longer.

Hope this helps?
