Welcome to another week's desk sharing and hopping. Head to Julia for the link up as usual - here
Having got ahead of myself over New Year with a heap of January birthday cards, I had some time to play at the weekend... I find myself with 4 WIPS (work in progress) started...
the white canvas which is bleached out by the flash, has heavy white gesso stencilled (circles) and some Fresco blue stencilled circles and is probably going to be "Finnabair'd" The flourish is the die I showed a week or so ago, cut from kraft card that was hanging around.
the blue journal to the right, is more circles stencilled in gesso under various blue Fresco paints, and has stamping in circles too.
The canvas standing at the back is a fabulous Stencil Girl arched window over a background painted of various brown fresco paints. I've done something similar with this stencil before, on a smaller canvas, I just love the gothic look it has.
I tried to get a better photo, so changed the canvases about a bit, I think the texture on the white one shows up a little more in this version.
the window canvas has greenery at the front, using a Paperartsy stencil with matte gel mixed with some green fresco paint. the bats are die cut (memory box)
So, 4 pieces on the go, none finished.. although the window one is nearly there, I think! Watch this space for more details maybe by next week.
I really had fun with all of these, it's been ages since I had a really good play, and it was fun to do so any different things at the same time. Apart from the gothic window, I didn't know what I was going to do with any of them till I started.
I've managed to catch the cold that is going round the office, which is a pain, but at the moment it isn't too bad...so I'll scurry off to avoid sharing my germs with any of you...
