Thanks for stopping by! I’m blogging on a plane! Yep.
This is the new Mile High Clarity Club!
Headed from Albuquerque to Atlanta, and then on to London.
So what better way to spent this transit time in the air than pretend you’re here, sitting next to me, and we’re chatting arty!
I’ve even worked out how to insert pictures! So let’s take a look at a really retro set of Style Stencils we showcased at the CHA in Los Angeles. My oh my. That seems like months ago!
Well, there are 3 stencils, each with 2 stylish 50’s ladies. – inny and outy stencils included.
And then there’s an ingenious dress-me-up set of remountable Claritystamps,
complete with 2 speech bubbles! So hours of fun there!
Bit dark, this picture, but I cannot wait to spend an afternoon dolling these girls up with the stamps.
I wanted to be a fashion designer when I was a kid,
So this set of stencils and stamps
Is right up me street. Or should I say catwalk?
You can see here that the ladies have been paper embossed, then coloured with our stencil brushes through the stencil, all ready for adding the finishing touches.
Here’s a pink lady I want to dress up before I go to town on the catwalk.
Just attach the stencil over the embossed figure, and gently apply colour using a Clarity brush and make up sponges.
It’s best to stamp the extras and the patterns into place with the stencil still in position.
Not the hat and flowers of course !
Smear any pink Picked Raspberry ink from the stencil into the dress, to create shade.
They come later! Mask the hand so that it looks like she is clutching the bouquet.
Add shadow, shoes, detail to the clutch bag and skirt pleats with a pink pencil
(Spectrum Noir for me all the way!)
A same colour pencil is all you need to define the dress, the sleeves, the legs. It really is that simple!
Add a little bling to the hat and shoes; maybe a little accent on the clutch bag? Perfect!
The Thank you line sentiment will make a great base. Just stamp it into place, mask it off and add the flower spray below.
Nice. Now I just want to get going on the other 6 lovely ladies! But it just got turbulent, and we’re coming into Atlanta. So I’d best say bye for now!
See you on the flipside!
