Just got through the door from the TV Studios,
slipped into something more comfortable,
and am ready to receive Poldark in the living room at 9 precisely.
Yeah. Dream on Gray!!!
Ah well, leaving my little fantasy world for a moment,
let’s enter another one!
If you were watching today, you will know that the wonderful new and very tall Treehouse stamp by our Melanie
sold out very quickly too.
Thanks to all the lovely, clever, delightful art samples which the Clarity Team rustled up for your pleasure.
Well, here’s a little something I dreamt up yesterday, before we went up to Peterborough, using said 4-storey condominium…….
Sunday’s blog a typical Gray Step-by-step, so here goes!
Stamp the Treehouse on a piece of white Gelli Card
using Black Archival
I used the large Gelli Card, the 8.5″x11″ and cut it down.
Mask the Treehouse with the mask we supply with the stamp.
You need a Mega Mount though;
that we don’t supply with the stamp.
Out with the Fresco Chalk Paints.
I wanted to get arty grungy yesterday,
because the shows today were going to be all
beautiful pencils and clean work.
Walk the brayer special price at the time of writing this!)
through some South Pacific on a craft mat,
and then walk around the card with it.
Do this with several colours.
We stock them all.
Oh and Postage is paid at Clarity for the whole month of April…
(Mainland UK – on orders of £10 +)
So you just keep going, lightening, darkening, until
You like it!
Took a while for me to reach that happy place!
Add a little shadow on one side with a Black Soot ink pad.
Or black Adirondack.
Next, let’s remove the soggy looking mask. it’s ok!
You can wash it in warm soap water!
Cover the Treehouse with Squeezed Lemonade
using a make-up sponge.
Bit of shadow here and there….
Lights on! Blimey!
This ‘ere ‘ouse is lit up like a Christmas Tree now!!
My Dad always said that when we used to leave the lights on upstairs; I can hear him now!
More white Snowflake colour required.
That’s what I love about these Paperartsy Chalk Acrylics;
if you don’t like it,
go over it and
And when in doubt,
let them eat CHEESECAKE!!
Now this colour is the new Buff Titanium for me!
Smeared a little London Bus around too.
Made the lines with a thin paintbrush…
That’ll do, before it ends up like a Club Sandwich
and twice as fattening!
Mount it on white card.
I added a little depth with a couple of Spectrum Noir Pencils, too.
Check out our website for a very special offer on the full set…
I wanted to create a bit of a lake effect in the background.
Can you see it?
So here’s the great thing about ART.
you own it,
and you can do what you like with it,
take it where YOU want to take it.
This piece is mine,
and I decided I wanted to
add some sewing and make the white yellow.
So now I have to finish,
before I fall off my perch.
Roast Lamb? I wish!
Cheese on toast,
but that sounds blimming good to me too!
