Sunday’s Blog is step-by-step and typically Gray. Here then, is a little leafy picture.
All you need is
Make-up sponges and Claritystencil brush
Are you ready to start? Right, here goes…
Tape the leaf stencil in place.
Load a Clarity stencil brush with Raisin ink and lightly swirl around the edge of the leaf stencil.
Use a make-up sponge to pull the ink on the plastic into the leaf, so that the edges are sharp and crisp and darker. Add a tiny amount of Slate around the lower edge with a make-up sponge.
Using Raisin, stamp the Pine Ridge into place, and with a make-up sponge, drag the inky tree on the stencil into the lower area of your miniature masterpiece…
Using a piece of torn copy paper and a make-up sponge, add more Raisin.
Add a mountain range,
Remove the stencil.
Using the Dotty wave stencil, a stencil brush and raisin, add a surround.
You can use Sequin waste ( punchinella ) too.
Darken and age the edges with Slate and a Stencil brush.
Outline the leaf with an Antique Rost Promarker with fine nib.
This was done at the SECC, at the end of the busiest Saturday ever!
But I wanted to make something true to Scotland for the Sunday step by step.
