Monday already! Where is the time flying?
We have so many things in the pipeline,
we are wondering where to start!
First things first though.
How about a little step by step project,
showcasing the lovely Stamp and Stencil of the Month of August?
We run a super sale on special products each month on the website,
and this month it’s these two beauties:
As you can probably deduce, the stamps fit in the stencil.
So let’s have a look…
How about another little Canvas Board?
I enjoyed yesterday’s so much!
First of all, make sure the stencil is the right way round for the stamps.
I think we’ll go with a little A6 Canvas Board (Pack of 3)
We really do have all the most sensible sizes on the website, you know….
And here’s another copy paper scrap I found somewhere in the pile.
Mod Podge to do the wrap around again.
Just brush the sealant PVA on the front of the canvas board,
Lay the scrap paper in place,
clip the corners,
then wrap a cool background scrap around the board.
Now let’s do something very very simple.
Let’s pencil the stencil!
Just trace the outline, ready to position the stamps.
testing, testing, 123….
Love these words by Wordsworth.
He was quite a wordsmith was Wordsworth.
Do you think that was his real name?
Let’s mask the area…
Stamp through the aperture..
Outline with a pencil. Simples.
Stamp the edge of the board with a few of the stamps in Plum.
This will look great mounted.
How about a little drop-shadow with a light blue Promarker…
Then go round again, right near the edge with
a darker blue Promarker (Denim),
but with a fine nib attachment.
Double-sided adhesive sheet on the back.
Time to attach your art to the next size canvas board;
in this case an A5.
Sign and be happy.
I like muchly.
Before I kick back, there’s one more thing I want to do….
PICK A LIMERICK WINNER
Oooooh that’s hard!
They were all so good!
But there can only be one winner…
Actually, Dave picked this one by Bridget CG:
There once was a woman from Kent,
To the Clarity Workshops she went;
It all took her a while,
But she left with a smile
Thinking, “That was money well spent”
Well done Bridget, and thanks to everybody who joined in.
Have a lovely evening y’all!
Love and Peace,
