Nice to see ya – to see ya nice!
Monday’s blog is flowers and trees,
so how about a lovely Treescape stamp,
which we can adapt to depict any season?
Well, spring is in the air, so let’s try a spring scene.
Clarity Blending Mat is ideal for blending different colours
using a Speedball Brayer.
I have mixed up a couple of blues for the sky.
Cover up the outside card with Post-Its,
add a moon,
tear a horizon out of copy paper,
secure it with low tack masking tape,
and then brayer the sky into place.
Remove the moon.
Addsome green to the mat.
I added Evergreen Bough…
Cover up the sky and roll the land into place.
I added some real green, Meadow,
on the left hand side.
Very easy, very effective.
Remove all the masks and buff the Clarity Card
with a tissue or kitchen roll.
This is the magical quality of our coated Clarity Card:
it polishes up like glass.
Let add the season.
Here’s a cool little set of all 4 seasons.
Fresh Spring. Sunny but a little nip in the air.
In fact, let’s fast forward and enjoy a warm Summer,
Mmm. A warm Indian Summer.
My favourite time of year.
The evening sun throws those long shadows over the fields
and filters dancing through the trees…
and before we know it,
snow is settling on a moonlit night…
Which is your favourite time of year?
I think all the seasons bring their own magic really.
Be it frozen cobwebs and icicles,
log fires on gusty nights,
little lambs hopping around
or sultry summer evenings.
Carpets of colourful leaves;
even the rain has its place –
the rain is what makes our island so green I guess.
And the wetter the spring, the better the summer.
Well, that’s the theory, eh!
Anyway, time for tea.
