It's Sunday, and it's a question of sport...
Here's one to try using masking skills, postage stampstamps
and a whole herd of little sporty people!
What else do you need?
Black, Stonewashed and Lettuce Adirondacks
White fineline pen
Black Micron pen
First things first, cut out all your Stampstamp masks.
Although of course, you could just buy them and put
paid to cutting out all the serrated edges...
Stamp the Stampstamps onto A5 Claritycard.
Cover them up with your masks and stamp the
background Stampstamps into position.
Until you have a great montage going.
Using your outer masks (aperture masks), start
stamping the sporty characters into the stamps.
Next, one by one, add the backgrounds.
This was all done using Lettuce and Stonewashed.
Tackle one little picture at a time.
When complete and dry, trim the A5 card back.
Mount on light blue paper
Mount on black then white.
Then trim white card.
Add 4 brads to the corners.
Using black and white pens, add slalom sticks, rugby
goal posts, tennis nets and whatever else springs to
mind. This is the part which makes the whole piece
of art very special.
Hope you liked that one. Time for bed, TV tomorrow
early! Hope you can join me. Do you know what
would make my day? A nice, uplifting comment
about something uplifting. Go on, think of something
nice and it will lift your spirits, too. Think positive,
be positive - it's the only way forward!
