Thanks for dropping in.
Where did the day go?
One minute I was engrossed in prep for the TV on Sunday,
the next it was pitch black outside.
So before I call it a day,
here’s a little card I made to showcase
some new and rather special little stamps
which are coming up on the Sunday Show:
Wee Folk Fairies, Elves & Whimsy.
When the first Wee Folk landed,
there was much excitement,
and thousands of them went to happy homes all over the country.
Then our friends and fairies in Never never land
said they would like to play too, get arty, help.
So on Sunday, they are joining me on the telly bright and early for their first airing.
I managed to talk a few of them into popping on here tonight,
to say hi.
They’re quite shy,
so don’t make any sudden movements...
Let’s take a look at the background...
The circles were made with the moon masks,
stencils brushes and various ink pads:
Just move the moons around the Gelli Card,
brushing colour through the holes,
until the card is full of colourful circles.
Cut a panel.
The Rooftops mask reminds me so much of Peter Pan!
So let’s get it out...
Wild Plum Adirondack certainly packs a punch!
Two rows if you please.
Black Soot Distress or Pitch Black Adirondack
with a make-up sponge.
Outline the bunting with a fineline Micron Pen.
Add a little fairy dust with a clear Sakura Gel Pen...
London smog round the edges,
and now the scene is set for our new visitors.
She is so pretty!
Aha! And here are the boys!
We decided to invited the boys to the party, too.
Well actually, the girls insisted.
Said they were fed up dancing round their handbags.
Amazing little sets -
you’ll see the tiny bluebells and toadstools on Sunday too.
Amazing here is from Word Chain No. 9
Time to lighten up!
Add a light layer of Moonlight white Brilliance to the whole piece, by lightly tapping the ink pad all over the card.
Go easy though ; don’t want to startle the wee fairies...
Yes, they look like they’re having fun now!
It’s a busy piece,
but they say your artwork reflects your mood, don’t they!
I can feel a limerick coming on...
There once was a fairy called Mary,
whose legs were frightfully hairy!
over to you !
Let’s have some fun.
Finish the limerick below
and then tomorrow we will pick a winner
and send that poet a £20 gift voucher.
hahaha - I can’t wait to read these...
