So today, having got something 'done and dusted' I have had time to play!
I love these flowers, but even more, I love the sentiment!
The page already had some mop up paint through a stencil on it, I spritzed the page and added some Infusions(A Bit Jaded, Limoncello and Are You Cerise)
I stencilled through some text and post mark stencils using DIs and then used one of the stamps to make little circles but then decided it was a little too bright so went over everything with gesso.
The flowers were stamped onto water colour paper and the petals coloured in with some old Twinkling h2Os - there is a shimmer but my camera didn't pick it up. The rest of the colouring on the flowers and the leaves were using some very old Tombow pens and I was surprised that they hadn't dried up!
Once I had cut them out I decided that the circle flower stems would make a good background and these too were coloured with the Tombows.
I added some more circles using Picked Raspberry DI ink and then spattered black and white paint over….after masking the flowers!
While we were at our caravan this time we had absolutely no internet connection or phone line for two days! The only time I could connect was while we were out!
We love our walks in the area.
I posted some photos on Instagram but for those of you that didn't see them here are some I took and some of hubby's too.
We entered the tow path at a different spot(having driven there) so we could explore more of the canal!
I spotted a couple of buzzards overhead -making quite a noise!
Hubby got a better shot
His camera also picked up the Moorhen and chick better
Finally we went up onto the bridge to look down on these Mallard ducks
I would like to enter in the challenge at Moo Mania and More - Nature's Beauty - flowers often stop me in my tracks!
For the same reason I would also like to enter the Challenge at Country View Crafts - Hot Summer Days
I have missed you all and I am hoping to get a catch up now!
Thanks for looking, Chris
