Happy bank holiday everyone! Well it turned out beautiful again today. I have taken full advantage of the beautiful weather today and my line was full of washing, flapping gently in the breeze. Finding myself home alone I shamefully abandoned the glorious weather and succumbed to the little voice in my head whispering " Craft Room".
I absolutely adore the artist Yvonne Coomber. Her paintings are stunning and have inspired me to create my own little version.
I haven't painted on a canvas this time, Hubby often hands me off cuts of MDF that I like to paint and sometimes stamp and stencil on. First I put on a coat of gesso and then watered down some acylics to make a wash.
Now the messy part! Lots and lots of splattering, my hands are now various shades of green, purple and red now! Better not pick in the white washing at this stage.
The next stage took a very long time. Dabbing on my chosen colours with cotton buds. I can tell you now that I can still see spots before my eyes.
I know this isn't exactly a card, stamps or inks so thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. You can follow by clicking the above link or comment below.
