Thank you so much for popping in, and for watching us on HOCHANDA TV if you did.
You know, you can always watch LIVE on their website on HOCHANDA.COM You don’t even need a television! Just the internet and a PC or a phone or an Ipad.
All clever stuff, innit…
So here’s the Globe art I did at 6.
How about a quick photo step by step recap?
Paul is showing off the candles and the Groovi Nested Christmas Verse on LIVE TV as I write. We just thought it would make best sense for him to step in, and let me write to you before it’s pitch black outside, and I’m still working! There has to be a limit! Do you know that I am back up at 4am, in readiness for a live Dutch show at 7am?
SO here’s how it works.
Cover up two areas at the top at bottom of the sphere before inking up with black Archival.
Stamp your snow globe onto white Stencil card.
Mask off the outside with the mask, and cut out the stand mask too.
Make a scene with some of the little miniature stamps.
There are countless computations if you consider all the little mini stamps from all the outline stampsets now…
Make a mask to expose just the sky.
Use a brayer and make-up sponge to create a night sky,
and add a little of the same colours – black and blue mix – to the periphery of the whole globe.
Then mask off the globe and add depth and shade to the stand.
Looks 3-d? Not quite yet….
Add a couple of white triangles to the left and right with a pastel stick, or white pencil, and some snow with white acrylic paint and a Groovi stylus.
Then mask the globe and stand again, and lightly brush blue ink back and forth where you left the blanks in the globe line art.
THAT’s the trick.
THAT’s what makes the sphere jump off the page.
Mount on black and layer to finish.
And so is Paul.
He is just finishing the Groovi Nested Verse demo.
I LOVE these plates. The verse which is woven into the nested shapes is absolutely beautiful. A real original spin by Mel.
Yep. There we have it.
Teamwork make the dream work.
And what a team.
So Paul and I shall go and have Kentucky Fried Chicken.
It”s a tradition every time we do the late night Sunday shows!
Sod the diet.
I’ll tackle that again tomorrow.
Hope you can join me again at 9.
We should still have some left….
I’m going to make a canvas with you.
Well, that’s the plan!
Love & hugs,
