Thank you for stopping by.
The sun is shining, and it’s time to get those summer frocks out.
Here’s a very simple, original little number, with lots of flounce and flower!
I used the new Elegant Lady stencil to get the shape, the outline:
Theuva Card used here.
Please forgive the dark photos; I was doing this at twilight, and forgot to flick all the lights on!
But you get the picture...
So carefully travel around the inside of the aperture
with a fine black micron pen.
Don’t worry if its not perfect;
we will add colour and shade to the shape.
Let’s add a little flounce. Think hills and use the uneven points in the outline as starting points
Add a flower, or tree.
After all, Monday’s blog is supposed to be Trees and Flowers!
Define the dress...
Start adding colour. Once again,
I used my Spectrum Noir colouring pencils.
Up the arm gloves?
Thigh length boots?
Too hot!!! But an idea for a rainy day....
A second colour required.
We can add a leafy border,
we can spend hours in the bathroom,
but I will leave that with you.
Add a suitable Word Chain Word for the Day.
From the No. 6 Chain.
Today, for me it has to be Faith...
I have got such a busy week ahead, preparing for the 100 + guests who are coming to the Clarity retreats next week!
But I have to have faith that it will be fine,
that the week will go well, that everybody will have a great time, that the projects will be well received.
My fears and insecurities always come to niggle me on a Monday!
Away! Away!!!! And thrice I say AWAY!!!!
PS I will announce a winner for yesterday’s Bloggetry Competition tomorrow. Which is tricky;
the limericks and poems were ALL absolutely super. Brilliant.
