De Stempelwinkel and Stitches Trade Show round up

Morning all, thanks for stopping by I'm killing two birds with one post here today, first up is a little peak of my make over at De Stempelwinkel, I made this whilst I was demoing at the CHSI trade show where I was on the Decoart stand demoing the Chalk finish paints.
You can find the full piece over on the De Stempelwinkel blog, I used Stamps from De Stempelwinkel, Decoart chalk paints and the New Andy Skinner Stencils (coming real soon)
If you have some time it would be great to see you over there xxxx.

A few pics from the make and takes.
Thanks for everyone that stopped by and had a play.
And now for a little peak at what's coming out soon.
High Gloss Décor Paint
Some brights added to the Metalic Lustres

And some very cool Decoupage Papers, I love the bottom two rows.
A couple of pieces I painted for the stand using the Chalk Paints, Ill be posting more about the samples in the next couple of days over on my shabby blog
Spesh-chic along with pics of the make and takes.

The Infamous Andy Skinner helping show off my side board to all it's potential.
I need to say a great big thanks to Decoart for the opportunity they gave me at the show, It was a lot of fun, I got to demo alongside Andy and Lindsay Mason, we had a blast, lots of laughs and I got to meet lots of new people as well as catching up with old crafty friends, some of whom I met for the first time at the show. Thanks to all of you that stopped by.
I even managed to book a few more classes, Ill add details as soon as I get them ;) xx
I have just started a facebook page and I would love to have you join me there. It will be a little more upto date and Ill be sharing other posts and links that wont make it to the blog xx
you can find me at Speshink aka Mark Gould
