So yesterday I sat on the floor and just played because I felt like it.
I dug out some cardstock, some embellies and a lovely tree from Aus company http://www.flourishwithabling.com.au/store/ and created some textured backgrounds and this lo. You'll see more of these painted backdrops in my next few los.
Here's the first one.
I guess I really should have taken pics along the way to show the steps. I promise to next time if anyone is interested. The cardstock here was off white. I used a mix of distress inks to the base and some touches of gesso to give it texture and shading. On the right I used a Prima mask but I moved it slightly as I sprayed to give it a watercolour appearance. IYKWIM.
On the left I used the outline of some bricks by Dusty Attic. Chipboard can be a great mask too.
I've also used a Prima stamp for the inked hexagons.
For the flowers I used a mix of Copics and ink to give them depth.
The pp is all Webster's.
Here's some close ups.
This one shows the blurring of the mask in the background.
Jera was eyes down searching for wildflowers for his grandfather's grave on a visit to the cemetry.
Bloomers in the tree
This lovely tree piece is from the Australian company, Flourish With a Bling http://www.flourishwithabling.com.au/store/ who asked me if I woud create with some of their fabulous range. This tree from the outdoor range has such a fabulous design and texture.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I love reading your wonderful comments and appreciate it so much.
Have a lovely weekend,
