the build up for the new disk

Well its getting close to the time when the Boys at Kraftyhands are getting ready to release the New disk on Create and Craft, on 1st Oct so we are all busy working on samples for the show.
The disk itself is called Craft Nouveau and is available on Pre-order on the Kraftyhands Website.
For those of you who truly know Art Nouveau, then I have one thing to say, the disk is true to Art Nouveau!
My Dad is a huge Art Nouveau fan, which lead to a bit of embarrassment when I was a child. Admittedly only one image is true Art Nouveau, and it fell to me to do it, but knowing Art Nouveau it was something I was watching out for! So if you have a True Art Nouveau fan in the family (as in huge fans of people like Clarise Cliff) then yes the image is there, but for general appreciation the disk is a lovely starter in Art Nouveau.
The disk itself has some lovely kits on it, the boys try to bring something each time, and this time we have the kinetic swing card.
Here's one of mine:

 Print out the 2 sheets, one on plain white cardstock and one on photo paper, and then cut around the lines. To cut a good cut on a circle, then dont look where your knife is cutting, look a bit behind the knife where you want the blade to go and you'll get a better cut, and a smoother and more accurate cut.
I had some rather citric Gold mirri in my stash, and it fits this design perfectly. I used a spellbinders Ironwork Motifs die to create the brackets.
So a lovely Art Nouveau card, dont forget you can pre-order your copy from the website, and do look at the other samples which will be appearing on my teamies websites,
