Hope you had a good weekend? Lovely weather for a change.
A little sunshine and the whole world looks different, eh.
So while darling Dave was up in Scotland slogging away, I have been having a grand old time! My lovely brother and I spent the weekend together, which is very rare, and boy! Did we laugh. He really is wasted. He missed his calling as a stand-up comic, that’s for sure. And then Sunday we were invited to our parents for lunch. So it was pretty cool, just the four of us.
The core Family.
So I thought this little project would be fitting.
Hope you like it.
Very, very easy.
Dig out one of those 8 x 10 Gelli Plate acrylic paint scraps you weren’t sure what to do with, but really liked the colours.
If you haven’t invested in a Gelli Plate yet, you really do not know what you are missing….
Cut the large piece up, so that you also have a panel the same width as the main piece.
Stamp the large blossom branch and chick stamp
in Archival Black.
Colour it in with Distress Markers.
They are ideal for colouring in over acrylic paint.
Take your time picking the colouring colours you use.
Go with whatever background you have.
Think Tone in tone.
And I bet every single person looking at this is thinking Easter….
We are so predictable!
Okay, so let’s keep going.
Stamp the 3 chicks and the Always from the Family Wordchain
Colour in the chicks.
Told you it was easy!
But one thing I know for sure:
easy doesn’t mean less than. It just means easy!
Add the word FAMILY in the open Acrylic area.
Mount the main piece and add the panel.
And then enjoy it.
Time spent making?
Time spent enjoying?
A lifetime in fact!
(think about it…)
Of course it would make a lovely Easter card –
that goes without saying!
But those little chicks make a great little family, too.
You could stamp out all the kids and grand kids and nieces and nephews – and even make little name tags for their feet!
I find there’s always a temptation to keep adding.
(to the card…)
But less is more.
Thanks for stopping by!
