The garden looks a lot tidier now too!!
I sat at the table (settee too low for my aching legs) and made a tag for Go Tag Thursday, where the theme 'Stamp it' got me thinking about friends in the USA, in fact the stamp was on a package from one of those friends a while ago! The tag I used is a chopped off large tag(forgotten what I used the bottom part for)
Some of you may recognise that the background was made with Distress Oxides - for the edges I dabbed the pad onto a block, spritzed a little and dragged the edges through the ink then spritzed the edges again - I loved the effect of the ink as it spread !
I have also been keeping up wth Rae Missigman's 30day artworks challenge and quite enjoying thinking of ways to portray the prompt
Here are 4 more pages.Day 5 - the prompt was 'round' I don't know what I was thinking when I stamped the colour wheel circle at home but once we were there I had to go with it !
Day 6 was 'black and white' I stamped some small flowers through a Paper Artsy Kim Dellow stencil then stamped some of her stems and coloured them black!
The prompt on Day 7 was 'arrow like' I have been carving some of my own stamps on odd occasions when we are up there so the heart was my first thought then I added some pointy Paper Artsy Elenazinskiart pointy leaves and some doodling
Yesterday (day 8) was 'filled'. It was quite late when we got home last night so I used my fingers to add some paint to the page, then doodled the leaves with a selection of 'gold' pens and filled in the gaps with a black Wink of Stella pen while I watched TV
I have tried to keep up with blogs although there were a few that I couldn't comment on as the connection dropped so I will be checking this out soon!
It's good to be home but guess what……..it's not for long!!!!
Thanks for looking, Chris
