Hi there, Clarity crafters, Stuart here. It’s Tuesday.
Hands up. Who likes a good optical illusion? I have to say, I love to see all those freaky, eye-meltingly mind-confusing visual illusions that do the rounds on social media every so often. I do find it fascinating how visuals can work and I love to see an image appear to be moving that is definitely not moving. The colours are a bit garish, but I do love being tricked by them. The first two are particularly clever, with a lot of movement going on. Don’t stare too long, though, you might be a bit motion sick… The last one is a little less surreal, and perhaps a little harder to figure out. So, why not let me know in the comments what you can see and what you think the illusion is?
So, why am I harping on about optical illusions? Well, it’s because this week’s YouTube Tuesday is also a bit of an illusion. It’s a really clever parching technique by Barbara Gray that makes Groovi embossing look 3D. It’s really cool and totally worth a watch, simply to admire the technique and the end result even if you think it looks quite tricky. It is a touch tricky, but some things do need that little bit of extra effort to pull off. Having said that – as usual – Barb does make it look incredibly easy and a lot of fun, for sure!

And don’t forget, there is 20% off everything you need to create the project, and you can add them to your basket from that link, too!
Well, that’s all from me. Do let me know what you think of the illusion, and let me know if you’ve done this project. I’d love to see how others get on with it…
Clarity Matters. It really does.
