Thanks for popping in. On Friday evening, during our Moment of Clarity LIVE Craftalong on Youtube / Facebook LIVE, I rolled the brayer off onto a few little scraps. If you watched you may recall, I was telling you all about the misty Scottish highlands that I could see in the little scrap…
So I thought I’d play the film right through to the end, so you too could see what I see!
Simple step by step coming up..
I used one of my favourite stampsets too: the Meadowdance. HALF PRICE in the Members’ Sale until tomorrow folks! Just saying…CLICK HERE
Ok. Let’s do this! Here are the brayer runoffs (if you’ll pardon the expression). I picked the blue one in the bottom middle, the misty Scottish Highlands…
These are all just 3.5 x 3.5 in Stencil card.
- Tear a piece of copy paper to look like hills.
- Hold it over the bottom of the little card, load up the brayer in the same ink colour as the background and roll back and forth across the area.
- Lift the paper to reveal the first rolling hill.
- Move the copy paper hills up and over a little, then brush the colour downwards.
- Add a little moon mask
- Use the blue brush to sweep a little moonshadow in from the right side.
Can you see what I see now ?
Next up the stamps.
- Stamp one of the larger trees into the front of the scene.
- Use the edge of the same stamp to add the hedgerows along the bottom.
- You could stamp the deer into the place, or the dancing children. I decided to keep it simple.
Add a word…
I picked the word BEAUTY from one of our Japanese Flowers and Butterflies sets…
The Japanese wordset is divine.
How to stamp the symbol without the English translation:
- Mask off the English word with low-tack tape and ink up in black Archival ink
- REMOVE the masking tape before stamping into the corner.
Mount onto a white 5×5 inch Clarity Card Blank, and there we have it: Misty Scottish Highlands…
To see a world in a grain of sandwilliam blake
or heaven in a wild flower
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.
A perfect quote for today, eh?
The rolling mists are there of coursebarbara gray
See Mount Fuji in the blue?
Or add our Ashdown Forest gorse –
The artist here is you.
Have a great Sunday. And don’t forget to take advantage of the Members’ Half price Sale. It may take a few weeks to fulfil and get to you, because we keep on making and don’t sell out, but this is your opportunity to treat yourself. I only wish the Pottery Companies did this twice a year !!
