Thanks for popping in.
Had a hankering to get my Gel Plate out and play with some paint.
The little Petites are great,
but sometimes you just need a bigger one!
So out with the 6″ x 6″
Wasn’t sure where to begin,
but I do like our Wee Houses Stamps.
and our Wee Shops
So let’s use them! Especially because they come with masks,
and we need masks for this trick!
Stamp out a row of houses and shops onto
a piece of our 7″x7″ Stencil Card.
Cover them up with the masks, add a huge moon mask
and set to one side.
Next mount the Gelplate on the matching 7″x7″ Megamount.
Mask off with low-tack masking tape and brayer night sky into position using an acrylic paint.
Dapple with screwed up paper.
Move the tape down and go over the same area with white paint.
The blue and white will blend if the blue is still wet.
Dapple the area again.
Remove the tape.
At this point, do you actually think I have the foggiest idea
what to do next???
Ah well, in for a penny….
Coat the whole plate with black acrylic paint.
…and dapple again, with screwed up paper.
Now we need a layer to pull the print.
Let’s add another layer with a blend of blue and red!
While it’s still wet, flip it upside down
and place it down on your masked houses and shops.
Ooooh! I say!
This is very very atmospheric!
Love the light beneath the last house in the street.
That was always our house when we were kids.
At the end of a terrace.
You can use the masks again.
Just pop them on a piece of copy paper to dry off.
So we could leave it white,
or add some interest with ink.
Lime Kiss Artistry ink for the Highlights.
Stamp Home above our house…
Great Word Chain Set No. 2...
Add some red lowlights with Blaze Artistry ink.
I think a little light in the windows might add to it …
Mounted on black.
Especially when you get to the end and look back!
We lived at No. 58, right at the far end of the cul-de-sac too…
Time to stop for the day, I think.
Sometimes it’s really refreshing to NOT know
where you’re headed.
Love & hugs,
