Thanks for stopping by.
It’s the crack of sparrows here, but I am loving this time of the day; may just have to make a habit of getting up in the wee small hours - even after the retreats are over.
I regret to say that today is the last day of all the workshops.
All the days have been enjoyable, and the guests delightful.
I do hope that they all enjoyed it, and got what they came for.
I am quite looking forward to tomorrow too.
I shall pull the phone out of the wall, listen to classical music, tidy the house and maybe even pull a few weeds.
Potter, I think they call it.
Thursday’s Blog is blue, so let’s light a way to the church with some fabulous new Lamp Posts.
Set of 4 remountables; great price.
We are using A4 Theuvacard cut back here,
and making a tri-fold card.
Dee helped me with this sample for the TV show on Sunday, but we ran out of time, so couldn’t show you.
Stamp the church in Black Archival, cut a mask and cover it up.
Add a moon mask and a path mask too.
Let’s make the background.
and a sheet of copy paper,
start brushing back and forth along the edge of the copy paper.
Move the copy paper down, step by step.
When you get to the base of the church, swop colours and brushes to Meadow Adirondack.
Keep going, right to the bottom of the page.
Remove the masks and put them somewhere safe for next time!
Now for the Lamp Posts. They are just perfect for adding depth.
Ground them with a little dark ink and a make-up sponge.
Sore the card now, with a Bone Folder or Scoring tool
Wet the lamps with water and pull out the background colour.
Now add yellow light with a pencil.
Let’s set a path with a Micron Pen.
Lovely even stones all laid out perfectly.
No cement; just sharpsand.
Hope they can open the church door once the cobbles are in...
But if they can’t, it’s ok. they’ll be able to take it all up again, because fortunately, they only used sand.
How does she know these things?
Ask her about the new garage and the new drive
they just had built.
(No. 1 Golden rule: make sure the doors open!)
Add a flash of yellow to the church and path.
Then open again.
Great funky Wedding Card!
Or change the colours and go Christmas.
If you go to the Website gallery, you will see some splendid artwork which the Clarityteam created using these stamps.
Well worth a visit!
Must go and get ready for our last day at the Rugby Club...
