Mid-Winter Christmas SpecialWe celebrated the winter solstice in June and as we head into July, the stormy depths of winter are upon us. It’s time to wrap up warmly and gather together with family and friends. It’s the perfect time for a Mid-Winter Christmas celebration. Think candlelight, cosy dinners and sharing mulled wine with friends and family, in front of a roaring fire.

DESIGN MASTER COLOUR SPRAYS
Paint range includes 50 different colours and three Design Master
products, Colortool Sprays, Colortool Metals and Wood Tone Spray.
COLORTOOL Sprays and COLORTOOL Metals are versatile and fast-drying color. They are delicate enough for use on fresh flowers, yet sturdy enough for all sorts of surfaces. An ultra-fine mist provides smooth application plus opportunity to create color infused patinas by layering colors or using simple techniques. COLORTOOL Metals provide metallic colour with all the versatile properties of the classic COLORTOOL Sprays.
WOOD TONE SPRAY is a rich translucent wood-toned hue which builds to a glossy shine. Use to mimic wood finishes on hard surfaces and floral products. Popular as an antiquing glaze, Wood Tone adds instant aging to almost any colour or surface.
All three products are super versatile and great for both floral and craft projects, they can be used on a wide range of surfaces including fresh flowers, foliage and fabric through to ceramics, glass, wood and paper.
During the cooler months when the days are short, it’s hard to find the time to head outside and enjoy nature. A succulent terrarium is an easy way to bring living greenery indoors. Terrariums are super easy to make and incredibly low-maintenance, even for those of us without a green thumb. These miniature worlds are a cool project to do with the kids; they make for a fantastic personalised gift and are a conversation-starting piece in your home or office. If you are looking for a quirky DIY centerpiece for your wedding or event, then a terrarium which can be prepared well in advance is a perfect choice.
Easter is early this year, in fact it’s so early that it falls in March, so I thought it best to crack on with the preparation for the celebrations quick smart.
At school we used to blow eggs and decorate them with dyes or melted wax crayons, then hang them on an Easter branch.
I’ve used the Design Master Floral Spray Paint to decorate eggs before, but I thought this was the perfect time to try out our Design Master “Just For Flowers”, it’s a ‘translucent spray flower dye’ that ‘changes the colour of any flower in an instant with natural looking results.’ I hoped it would work well on blown eggs.
