I am getting really excited. Gina is launching her next book in the Total Trimmings Series today – all about tassels. I literally squealed with delight when my copy arrived. I have had so much fun helping out with samples ready for the shows on Hochanda TV starting today (at 6 and 8pm), more shows tomorrow (9am, 1pm and 5pm).
Watch live on Freeview Channel 85 (UK) or online via their website at www.Hochanda.com
In addition to the book Gina will be launching a great bundle (One Day Special offer) including the Paperlathe system with a brand new Companion CD enabling you to make so many wonderful shapes for tassel tops, mixed media and bead making. Whether you like soft crafts, mixed media or jewellery making you will love it. The small tassel board is great for making mini tassels suitable for both trimmings and for jewellery.
Check Gina’s Facebook page for some examples of the Paperlathe shapes and wonderful tassels in the new book.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the tassel samples I made for the show. I had so much fun. Tassels for jewellery, home furnishing and I just had to do Halloween. Also some mixed media fun using recycled materials including a used tape runner, hanging ribbons cut from blouses and skirts, plus a bag created from recycled jeans and old textile trimmings with added tassels.
The Paperlathe system provides hundreds of different shapes and the new Companion CD provides even more possibilities with more tassel tops, fabulous stands (fab for mixed media – great shapes for box feet etc. too) and more bead shapes too for jewellery and embellishing.
I will share more details of the projects with you soon x.
