Thankss for popping in.
And thanks for watching and supporting on Hochanda if you are,
although I am barely going to compete with Wimbledon!!
What are the chances???
First time in 12 years they play on the first Sunday,
and right bang on the same time.
It is what it is.
DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF.
I am grateful to be here at the studio, working with Charlie, Paul and a bunch of lovely people.
Quick blog in between shows!
Sorry I didn’t get to the Giraffe skin in the background!
Where did the time go???
First of all, blend two colours from those fab little ink pads
on the blending mat:
Sweet Toffee and Old parchment.
By the way, these little ink pads are the nuts.
And perfect as a sampler set in readiness for the larger ones.
I love them.
These are the same colours I used to colour in the Giraffes.
Load your brayer from the mat and then transfer the ink onto a sheet of copy paper.
We’re just trying to change the background colour a little.
Don’t worry about patched or stripes!!
Now scrunch up this sheet of paper and then flatten out again.
Lay or even better TAPE the giraffe texture stencil into place,
load the little blending tool with the darker colour,
then pound through the stencil
Do that all over.
May as well make a whole sheet.
Attach double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of the sheet,
and roll over the front with a brayer.
Using a craft knife, cut the panel you want.
Layer up on a blue panel slighter larger.
I made the blue panel by brayering the same blue I used in the front picture just up the sides.
Now just decide which layout you like best.
It’s back on telly she has to go!
If we have time at the end of the 5pm show to do this, then I will,
I wouldn’t bank on it!
Better to do something new properly than scramble.
I don’t like scrambling; it makes me nervous.
And when I get nervous I make mistakes.
Definitely going to write that book.
I can see it in my mind’s eye.
Shotgun that idea!
Just give me the time I need to get to it!
See you soon
Love & hugs
