Thanks for popping in today.
Have had a great Monday here in Bretagne,
hanging out in the garden.
Spent a good portion of the morning peeling potatoes with Jayne,
in readiness for my world famous potato salad (not!)
Meanwhile, the others were getting right into their Groovi Plates and Gelli Plates!
So here is a Gelli background,
which Kirsty and Sam rustled up between them,
and then donated to the daily blog cause.
Lovely. Can you see what I see?
Well, be that as it may,
my job after supper was to turn it into a piece of artwork;
but Dave wants to go for a work,
so I had/have half an hour!
So here goes:
Stamp the flock of geese and the lovely new pair
in Black Archival ink.
This set comes unmounted with masks.
Actually excellent value.
This works on acrylic paint, and the Gelli Plate background was done using the new Fresco Chalk Acrylic paints.
Cover with masks provided, and add a large moon.
Using a make-up sponge, drag a little of the black ink out from the mask into the background behind the geese.
Do the same around the moon.
See how this makes the images pop?
Now add colour to the birds.
I went in using Spectrum Noir pencils, because they work brilliantly on acrylic paint.
I plucked a couple of colours from the background,
and added a couple of others, for good measure!
Think I’ll just add a little colour to the landscape too…
That’ll have to do.
Time for our walk.
Hope you like it.
Not time to frame it! So here it must sit…
Not a bad resting place, eh.
See you tomorrow xxxx
much love to you,
Tomorrow we’ll pick a winner for last week’s rollover.
I haven’t forgotten!
