Thanks for stopping by on this Monday morning!
Here’s a quickie, because I am headed for the Crowborough Rugby Club, for the first day of the 10-Day Clarity Retreats.
I am REALLY looking forward to it. The first project is soooo cool - great way to start the day...
Anyway, last week, as my astute friend Dee Paramour was leaving the building, she handed me a bunch of background papers she had prepared for TV demos, but hadn’t used. “These may come in handy next week when you are blogging Barb”.
God bless Dee!
So here is a little card which took minutes, because the background was already there!
It was made using the Clarity Brushes,
Stamp the first lovely tree in Black Archival
Then form a curve, like a hammock, with a line sentiment.
I used the Thinking of you from
Run a length of low-tack masking tape along the base of the tree.
Add the second lovely tree
Well, I can certainly see myself snoozing in the hammock here!
Make a dot in each of the 4 corners, about 1/2 inch in.
This is your orientation.
The trick when drawing a funky freehand line like this between 2 points, is to keep your eye on where you are going,
not on the pen nib!
It’s like riding a motor-bike; if you keep your eye on the road ahead, you will ride like a champ.
If you focus on the front wheel,
you will wobble and ride like a chump!
Try it if you don’t believe me! The pen trick, not the bike!!!!
Go round again, overlapping as you go.
Doodle some lines into the overlaps.
Get quirky in the corners!
That’s it. All we need now is some white card to park it on.
Err, I mean mount it on!
Pretty. Fresh. Simple.
If you’re headed to Crowborough this week for the retreat,
please have a safe trip,
and keep your eye on the road ahead!
PS. Did you know I have a Harley ?
Yes, I am an official LOH. Lady of Harley!
So does Dave. But that makes him a HOG.
Time to dust it off and ride off into the sunset.
The bike, that is!
