We’ve got a few trees down around this area.
So Storm Katie is definitely blustery!
Monday’s blog is flowers and trees,
so nothing more appropriate today,
than our new Groovi Baby Trees,
Designed by our lovely Melanie.
These are so delightful to use,
I thought I’d do a little step by step for you this morning,
while the wind is howling round this little upstairs artroom
and the trees are swaying to the music……
I need the Groovi Numbers Inset,
(the collar which comes with a Tags Baby Plate)
to clamp the Baby Plate in the Large Groovi Plate Mate.
If you’re in the Groovi Club, you receive a smaller Baby Plate mate to frame all the Baby Plates too.
So: either Large Mate (in Starter Kit) + Inset
or Join the Groovi Club!
(£5 a Month is all. You get a Baby Plate & projects every month)
I love the shape of these little trees.
But how about adding some leaves?
Just trace out some of the branches,
and add leaves from the Basic Border
How pretty is that?
Let’s add a different inner to the outline of the Leaf-shaped tree.
Now they belong together!
Square nested Plate to frame the trees.
Gate and a Picket Fence from one of the Houses Baby Plates….
Let’s add a lovely house,
set back behind one of the trees….
Landscape Plate from the Starter Kit to add the path and garden.
Birds and a sun from the same plate.
And let’s add a little texture with the new diagonal Grid
and the No. 2 tool.
So where are we now?
Now. Looks at watch.
Has she got time to do the whitework as well as the proposal for the Ally Pally live TV hour?
Maybe. Maybe not.
But I do love this look.
When the leaves are white.
And you can’t have a white Picket fence that isn’t white,
now can you???
I had a friend once,
who had a beautiful house
with a little white picket fence all around it.
Was I envious? No, not envious, but I did dream of living in a beautiful house with a perfect little white picket fence.
She was a very unhappy woman,
and took meds to alleviate her unhappiness.
But the meds made her really whoozy and dizzy,
and one day she fell over her little picket fence
and smashed herself up quite badly.
And every time I see a white picket fence I think of her.
Because I learned way back then,
that wealth and trappings don’t make you happy.
And meds didn’t make her happy either;
they just blurred her vision, if you know what I mean.
Time to add a little yellow to the back with a Clarity Brush.
These Brushes certainly do the trick!
Very light and dreamy.
Have you seen our new corner punches?
There are 4 of them.
I want to use the corners as little clips to hold the artwork in place.
So I have cut a piece of white card exactly the same size as the parchment artwork, and then I can slot the 2 layers into the outer hole.
There. Nice Spring scene.
I highlighted the sun, frame, windows and lawn with a Squeezed Lemonade Distress Marker; that’s why they are darker.
I do enjoy doing Groovi Parchment.
It calms my racing mind.
