Thanks for popping in.
Very happy on several counts today,
not least the fact that Jim has finally fixed the Photo import
on this ‘ere blog.
Google decided to retire my old technique using Picasa,
so for the last month or so,
every blog has been a mission and a longwinded
pain in the proverbial.
But no more !! Well done Jim.
Tuesdays we take a look at colour.
We see which colours go together.
We showcase the new Artistry Ink Pad range.
And we put on a special price for a week,
until the following Tuesday.
Last week, we looked at
Today I want to try out a few bright colours
and go a little grungier….
How about a neat little stencil, which means a lot.
Attach it to a piece of Theuva Card.
I found spray mounting it at one end really helped!
Mask off the area around the stencil with masking tape.
Here are the 3 colours on the Blending mat,
all ready to make a mess with!
3 colours – 3 sponges.
Let’s use Mini Blending tools and sponges,
and let’s dab dab dab, instead of smearing.
Use all 3 colours. And don’t panic if it looks a mess.
It’s not finished yet!
Keep going until the card is completely loaded with ink.
Now remove the stencil and trim the piece right back to the colour.
Nice and bright!
Now replace the stencil.
It will stick again.
Load one of our Clarity Brushes with the Bilberry,
the darkest colour,
and sweep upwards in one direction of the stencil,
to create a shadow.
This will not only create a 3-D effect;
it will also grunge up the colours and tone them right down.
Mount on white card, and you’re done.
Doesn’t it look as if you could pick the letters off the page?!
We did something similar in the retreats with a stencil
and Clarity brushes.
Really easy trick
So the deal is this,
the new ink pads I have used are £4.50 each,
or £12 for all 3.
If you decide to get all 3, I will make sure you receive
the little Moment of Clarity Tag Stencil
as a FREE gift.
Love and Hugs,
