Thanks for popping in.
Just done with all the prep for the TV shows tomorrow
and Monday. Methinks it will go very well!
But now I have hit a brick wall.
Always, at about 2 in the afternoon, I am ready to drop!
Is it an age thing?
Have I actually hit the Afternoon Snooze phase of life???
If that’s the case, then look out tomorrow,
because I’m supposed to be doing my bit for the Crafting cause
on HOCHANDA at 2pm!!
Anyway, speaking of brick walls,
I dug out an old print from a Gelprinting plate
and thought I’d use it as a gritty background for one of those beautiful new Stamps designed by Jayne Nestorenko.
I shall be using the little 6"x6" Gel Plate tomorrow afternoon at 5pm on TV, if you have time to watch.
Anyway you need an Archival ink pad to stamp on top of acrylic paint. So I used a Watering Can Archival
and the Dahlias
How appropriate....a watering can and dahlias, I mean...
Busy background, hard to discern the flowers.
Let’s bring them out with a little colour.
The ones which work best on acrylic paint are the same ones
which work best on parchment:
Faber Castell Polychromos, and
Spectrum Noir Blending pencils.
Light and shade.
There is a Faber Castell eraser pencil which is BRILLIANT for lifting colour,
so that you can add highlights.
Less is more.
A brick wall background and some exquisite flowers.
Dahlias, in fact.
If you missed yesterdays blog, then do check back and more will be revealed around tomorrow’s TV launches and the launch of these wonderful stamps.
Time for a nap.
Love & hugs.
