Morning all. Just sat and watched yet another great show with Barbara Gray and Clarity Stamp. I must admit I really enjoyed playing with this new set of Stamps and Stencils and could have done a lot more and will in the future.
So I will do a bit less chat today and just show you a Gallery of what I made for this show and a bit of how I made them.
|I made this using my Journal Style / Techniques|
This is my personal favourite, I am very proud of this one but un-fortunately it didn't get its 5 seconds of fame. Still I enjoyed making it and it will still be put to work. The background of this one is paint onto a wooden Tag by ower lovely MDF Man, thanks for bringing them to the Doncaster Dome - I wish I had bought more now!
|Oh look has that dress got the pattern of the new "Sam's Eggs" Stencil on it??? It is made with a Gelli Print. I stamped onto the Tag with the new Dress Stamp and then I dressed it with a cut out image from the Gelli Print using the Dress Stencil as a guideline to draw around.|
|This is the full Tag - this was made with Alcohol Ink, Paint and a secret ingredient!!!! Got to keep some things under your belt !!!! But I did use the new round sponges that you can now get at Clarity Stamp for the shading, they are brilliant.|
|This is one I DIDN'T SEND off but I do quite like it. I just didn't think it was suitable as a DT card. Hence the unfinished shoe at the bottom, it does actually line up, just not in this photo?? I might come back in and do something with this one at some point. I discovered a new thing with my Gelli Plate with this one and played a little with the grunge paste, adding things into it so I will let you know how I get on with these methods at a later date, needs a little perfecting. |
Boy Oh Boy did I put a lot of time and effort into this one but I really enjoyed making it.
ALL OF IT IS GRUNGE PASTE. It is double layered, when you feel this it feels very silky and a little like a tile - that secret ingredient again!!! I said above to look at the girl below when I was talking about colouring in with pattern, well in this case that pattern is already done for me with the Butterfly Stamp from today's show. See how it makes her look like she is standing with her Butt sticking out, I think kids look so cute when they stand like that. I thought it gave shape to her coat too. Again I scratched out her hair and shaded with Charcoal pencils and used the Clarity Stamp Dress stamp on the older girl and umbrellas.
The girls hair is done with scratching and charcoal - I am addicted to doing this now so will be doing a lot more. Do you remember when Barbara did it with the Washing Line Stencil, it looked great didn't it.
Charcoal pencils which I had never heard of back then.
So I think it is safe to say that I really enjoyed playing with all the Girly Stamps and Stencils, I didn't even get started with the shoes yet??/ I just ran out of time, but I love them just as much and will be playing with them today.
I will do a blog later in the week to show you the rest of my samples for this Show.
I hope you like my Gallery and I hope I have inspired you to try something different, I know I am inspired by the rest of our Clarity Design Team and I would recommend that you nip along to their Blogs to check out their samples too. You can also see the DT Samples on the Clarity Stamp Website too.
Have a nice day everyone and thank you for dropping by. I need to switch off for the rest of the day as I have a lot of crafting to catch up on.
All comments welcome
