Thanks for stopping by.
Rather late I’m afraid,
but I decided to switch off
from Clarity and crafting for a few hours,
and just be a housewife.
Isn’t it ironic? I have had such a delightful day,
cleaning and hoovering and doing laundry!
Many of you would argue that the woman’s lost it.
I would argue that creating nice clean dwelling is pleasant, too.
Monday’s Blog is Trees and Flowers.
On the TV show yesterday,
we launched a superb new Tree stamp
I’m going to work with the stamp here,
mostly because I cannot find the stencil!
Here’s a background I rustled up earlier,
Stamp the bird tree into position, using Archival Black.
Well. Solid black it is not!
But as we know, you can’t go back over it!
So let’s try something else...
Instead of colouring the tree in with a black pencil or pen,
which would be easy,
let’s go the other way, and see what happens...
now let’s get the dark pencil out and add some texture...
I think I’m even going to add a touch of blue,
so that the image tones in with the background.
Add Dream for the Word Chain No. 5
I want to add a gold shimmer.
Out with the Gold Shimmer spray I really must give back to Dee!
Now THAT’s better!
I speed-dried the card with a heat gun and it buckled a bit.
Never fear! Spray Mount’s here!
The artwork flattens perfectly once you spray mount it.
Then spray mount it again on black. Done.
and there’s still time for a lovely walk along the railway lines before the sun goes down...
No, not before the train comes along!
It’s a disused line, and I love it, because there are no gradients!
No hills, not even a slope!
I am even considering getting a push bike, because I reckon you could pretty much roll along with a minimum of pedalling...
See you tomorrow!
You Tube Tuesday !

I have an idea, too. Leave a pleasant message below about anything which makes you happy, and tomorrow I will pick a random somebody to send this artwork signed.
If you don’t want it, then don’t leave a message!
