Hope your Easter weekend has been pleasant?
Ours certainly has.
Here’s a little step-by-step project for you, using 1 of 2 stencils, which were designed to work together, but can be used alone, too.
Enhanced with our two Sapling Trees and
Let’s take a look...
Let’s see how the 2 sit together first.
Even though I have only used the underneath, I wanted to show you how they are related.
But how can we used them together? Well, I was thinking I might do a You Tube Video on this topic in a couple of weeks time....
But here, let’s just use the less obvious one - the snowy one.
And let’s get off the SNOW train quickly!
Using one of our fab Clarity Brushes,
Remove the stencil.
Using our Clarity Moon Mask and some Post-Its,
let’s make a huge sun.
Load one of the Clarity Brushes with your Butterscotch Adirondack, and swish around the edge of the orb.
Keep going round in circles with the tip of the brush.
Use a make-up sponge to add depth to the base.
If you missed the You Tube Tuesday video this Tuesday past, I did an orb like this against a dark blue sky. Check it out!
Using Fern Archival ink,
stamp the Sapling trees into the Paths of the stencil.
Smaller tree to the back, larger tree to the front.
This artwork almost has a Japanese, crisp feel to it,
don’t you think?
Let’s add a duck in flight. First generation ink,
and second generation further away.
Very very basic stamping, but easy on the eye.
The more I hang around this cardmaking world of ours,
the more I like the simpler things....
One of those brilliant word chain words might work well in the sky, but which one?
Let me know, and I will pick one,
finish the artwork with it
and send it to somebody.....
that’s if they want it!
