Yes, there's been 700 of these ..... blog posts from little old me!! It's surprising what I find to blog about!
How's your week going?
The good news is I don't feel quite as bad as yesterday ..... looks like whatever it is isn't planning on sticking around .... thank goodness!!! Unlike hubby who's coughing and sneezing all over the place ..... I'm staying well out of his way!!!
Anyhow .... on to the crafty stuff.
I'm having a bit of a Clarity fest at the moment ..... and why not I say!!! I've shared some stamped designs with you ..... but what about all those fab stencils!
This is the gorgeous Wild Grasses 1 A5 stencil, used on top of a piece of inky background card I found in my stash.
I used some Dusty Concord Distress ink first ....... brushed through the stencil to create the background flowers, then I used some black texture paste through the same design over the top.
Once the paste was dry I added a touch of gold gilding wax over the flower heads to give a little shimmer
and then finished off using one of those Word Chains again (told you they're handy stamps to have!)
Here's a quick canvas using the same stencil .....
I simply brayered some Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints onto an 8x8 canvas ........ adding a little at a time until I was happy with the look .... love the texture that comes through
I then used white texture paste through the stencil to add my design
Once the paste was dry, I placed the stencil back on and this time added some colour using my Distress inks ......
A touch of glitter glue here and there adds a bit of sparkle, and to finish off I added some paint splats
over the canvas ......
and a little bit more interest by using the edge of a credit card to add some painted lines
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
Lauren's had her first driving lesson today ..... one of the birthday presents from her boyfriend! I need to find out when the next one is ....... and remember to stay off the roads!!!
Cheerio until next time
