My entry this week has seen me return to my true love... oh yesh, it is all about Studio 490. I make no secret of the fact that I am Wendy's #1
Once I had the inky background sorted, I set about layering on lots of different stencil images. Apart from the sentiment and flower cluster, everything on the creation has been stencilled. I used lots of Wendy's stencils and the following Archival Inks: Leaf Green, Tree Branch, Fern Green, Dandelio and Jet Black. The butterfly is actually a stencil too, I just cut it out and bunged a little pearl onto the body. I added Glossy accents to dots I added to the laurel wreath (used a Sharpie to add those) just to add a little extra texture to the background. The base is a canvas board that I covered with hessian using Multi Medium to stick the hessian down and then colouring with Black Soot Distress Paint. I added the flowers, which are Kaisercraft ones, leaves from Tim's Garden Greens die and voila, finished!
I shall away! It is Friday morning at the moment, which always confoooses me when I am actually pretending it is Sunday... I am away this weekend teaching at Pickwell Farm in Southampton... and I am reliably informed that the PYO strawbs are ready (cue Hels covered in strawberry juice) and there be cherries too... ohhlalalaaa.. I have already eaten several hundred weight of cherries already this year - must be a good season for them cos they are all delish! Thanks for looking.. have a grand day! TTFN
