Thank you for stopping by.
Thursday’s a Blue Blog, and it’s
This is historically one of the busiest days of the year for us, so whilst you are reading this blog, spare a thought for us, pedalling like loonies in Birmingham!
Deep impression powder, or SEA SALT!!!
Black Adirondack Ink Pad or Black Archival
With the help of a Blending mat, brayer both Wild Plum and Stonewashed onto A6 Claritycard.
You can intensify the colours,
by going over them a couple of times.
Punch out a moon and position....
Sprinkle some thick embossing powder, or seasalt over the pic.
Ink up the brayer with Stonewashed and then roll straight
over the granules. Back and forth.
The granules will create blobs and splits in the background.
Splat some water and blot, for more blotches and staining.
Wipe all the granules off, ready for stamping.
Now the scene is set for the next stage...
Stamp the Landscape into place using Black Archival
Add the boy fishing from the set.
It’s a really excellent little demountable set.
Hang on, let me find a picture for you....
Okay, so here’s the little lad.
Add some moonlight highlights with the white pen.
See how the moon sits?
Time to find a matching background.
and add a little message for a good friend .
And when we get back to our room tonight, I shall sit down with a cup of tea, and just indulge myself,
reading your kind and uplifting and encouraging comments.
So do take a minute....
lots of love,
