Hello my friends. I have been more busy than usual on blogger. This project had been in my head for a while now and finally I have managed to put it down on paper.
Below is the thing that got me started on this. This comes on the inside of graze boxes. A few weeks ago i was looking at it and then it was the light bulb moment.
So i create the 4 scenes using a moon mask, distress inks, stencil brushes and a torn piece of copy paper for hills.
The trees are from the trees and mantles set by Claritystamp. I used potting soil archival ink for trunk for spring, summer and autumn. I used watering can edged with potting soil for winter. For mantles I used fern green for spring, fern green edged with bottle green for summer. I am quite pleased with the way the mantle turned out for autumn if I say so myself.
I inked it with dandelion and then added orange blossom, olive green. red geranium and plum.
For winter one i simple flicked some water at it to give an idea of snow.
I edged all 4 windows with a black sharpie and distressed outer edges with scissors and inked with walnut stain.
Change is from the Ghandi saying which i managed to isolate with some masking.
The base is the back of my watercolour pad which i had used. i painted it with black gesso. I then stuck artwork down and the kraft windows on top.I then added some embellishments. The pine cones and corn are cut from kraft card and inked with walnut stain, then versamarked and clear embossed. Twigs and leaves are spellbinders and the 2 flourishes are Sue Wilson dies which i cut out from a shaving foam strip that I had left over from another project.
Then my dilemma. I couldn't decide what to put on top. I experimented with a couple of ideas but I wasn't sure.
I would really appreciate any help and suggestions, Theresa xx
