Hi there I hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather. I certainly am. My painkillers have kicked in and my sore neck doesn't seem so bad at the moment!
This was done with Inks through the ClarityStamp Stencils and I used Clarity stamps for the flowers and did Abstract style painting over the top of them.
Can I just say a big welcome to my new followers and thank you for following. I thought I would just show a little of the art I did in France whilst chilling with the rest of the Clarity Team
- and what a lovely bunch of people they all are, I am so lucky to be a part of it all.
Her dress is stamped with the last ClaritySyamp NDC Stamp and again I did abstract style drawing
over the top of it.'
So I will keep it short and sweet as I am playing with my Gelli and some brand new Stencils and stamps for Barbara's next TV show - I learnt a lot from the rest of the Team in France and I will be using some of what I learnt in my crafting today - one thing in particular I learnt is that it's OK to work in small pieces of Art and it's OK to Hone it in a little. That's the theory of it, ow let's see if I can put it into practice. Maybe no on these little pieces of messy artwork though eh???
I was quite impressed with my Parting!! What do you think? I practice with my charcoal pens all the time and my white pens, and any I can get my hands on really?
You know I had almost forgotten that in my 20's I used to do a lot of pencil only shaded pictures I was quite good at it them so not sure how I forgot the art of it? I could only copy puctures though. I once did a tiger's face - it took me about a month to complete and that was doing it every night after work, my friends couldn't believe I had done it, neither could I ???
- That was before I discovered the Naffi Bar I think?
Anyway that seems a whole lifetime away - it was actually???
This is Glass Pant - Barbara was showing me a method of play that she had been shown. I need to perfect this because the results that Barbara was getting was absolutely Gorgeous!! You can see them on her Blog - barbaragrayblog.co.uk definitely worth a look. Sorry I can't actually link I am on a new app and still learning? Aha!! It's just linked itself
- oh I do like this Blogsy thanks for the shout out Jo Rice. X
I just love the depth you can get with this.
This is a joint effort with Sylvia Marshall. I asked her for a topper so she gave me a Parchment Butterfly she had made? Sorry Sylvia I don't think I did it justice. Sylvia's Parchment pieces are stunning - I kept looking at the feathers she had on her desk thinking how beautiful they were - I thought they were real until the next day when she put them on a piece of her artwork. She had made them in Pachment!! Xx
This is one of 2 canvasses I started - still to be finished.
I must say thank you to Dee Paramour for the Dry Brushing advice, I wonder if she knew it would keep me quiet for a few hours? Mmmmmmm ???
Still got a long way to go on this one.
I won't show this one until it is finished. But I have some DT work to do first!
So I didn't just sit and drink tea all day ? Just a big part of it?? Xx
Off to a Bar B Que Be Soon at my Sisters house. Have a lovely day everyone. Thank you to every one who drops by here and for any comments you leave. X
I will leave you with my favourite. xx
