A play with the Fabulous Flappers stamp set from Chocolate Baroque today.
This has a background created with very wet washy brushos. The flapper girl has been stamped on top and coloured with the same colour palette as the background. A quick border down the side and all done. (more…)
I’ve had a workshop scheduled in for this Thursday evening for a couple of months. I was planning to do a lovely stamping project using the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps. Slight flaw in my plan though – can’t get hold of these stamps – they are like gold dust! So… I had to find an alternative project for tomorrow’s workshop. Time for Plan B! (more…)
A fun little PaperArtsy playing piece today. I’ve had a delivery of new stamps – so they just have to be played with! i thought it would be fun to combine the JOFY Topiary Trees along with the Squiggly Ink birds on a wire. The background is Brusho, as is the painted in detail too. Loving these trees, although they are known at the space alien trees in the shop because I think the tall skinny ones look like an alien with antennae!.. watch this space for an alien piece at some point haha!
I painted the birds in brighter colours to make them stand out a little more. Sometimes its nice just to play and experiment with your stamps!
Don’t forget the next Inky Addicts club is on Sunday 9th August at Garnier hall in Eccles – reserve your seat now!
I have a few new sets of PaperArtsy stamps that you will start to see appearing in my blog. These are the gorgeous newly released designs (and due in stock any day!). This first piece has been created using Brushos. Have you had a play with these yet? They are little pots of pigment powder that you can combine with water to make gorgeous backgrounds and also paint with them too.
I spritzed my background with water and then applied powders, and kept spritzing with water, applying powders until it was all quite watery which makes the colours blend nicely. On this piece I tried to keep my colours in stripes – I’ll try and remember the colours I’ve used.. it was sea green, then I think ultramarine, then Purple and I think brilliant red.
I’ve then used the Brusho powder mixed with a little water to paint in the details.
Back again soon with another project!
