This was my challenge during last week end: to experiment a technique learned during my drawing course and to apply it in miniature for coloring a stamp.
I can really say that it wasn't easy to reduce the strokes and to stay in the contour. However, I am happy with the result.
I passed the charcoal on Sailor Jim that you can find it at Chocolate Baroque shop, stamped it on white cardstock and coloured with charcoal.
As the stamped image is very light and volatile, I had to be very careful not to loose the design.
The blue stripes are coloured with different blue and green of Distress Ink Pad to make you think of the sea, and the stenciled transparent modeling paste, of the waves. They are deliberately glued in an irregular way at the side and the bottom of the Sailor with Ranger Triangular Collage Stick
The sentiment stamped with Versafine onyx black is part of Words of Love, a very nice plate you can use it in different occasions.
My art lessons continue every Tuesday morning and my teacher Tiberio Mazzocchi is happy with the progress I made since I began to go in his studio.
We dealt with different topics, study of anatomy, study of color, understand how to observe, use of different materials and we have not finished yet ....
Here some of the studies done and the last two drawings concerning the new topic of January, What will be the next design next Tuesday ?
Even in winter the sea has its beauty and I love the sea during any season. Therefore I want to share with you this journaling page spread with a frozen seahorse and a seashore in a foggy and rainy day.
Some days ago, I was reading about the history and the origin of the dreamcatcher and looking later at the Tangled Garden stamps, I have been inspired to make this card.
As you can probably notice, I always used the opposite Aquarelle colour from the colour wheel both for the flower and the leaves. I like the result of this painting so full of popping up contrasts. Remember to use Archival or Versafine when you colour images with watercolour.
Thank you for passing by and Happy New Year.
Hi, it is so interesting and lovely to see Lesley from Chocolate Baroque at Hochanda demonstrating Steampunk stamps. Here I want to share with you the card I made using Steampunk Travel stamp and Steampunkery stamp for the sentiment.
1. Put the stamp underneath the acrylic block and think about the colours you want to use
2. Colour the acrylic block with Distress Ink Pad
3. Spritz with water
4. Wipe the acrylic block with a heavy piece of White Cardstock till you are happy with the result
5. Stamp the image with Versifine black both on the mat and on the card itself, as shown, and glue the sentiment label with Ranger Triangular Collage glue
Isn't that a funny card for a friend who is moving ? Magda
Today I want to share with you two journaling pages, as I always return with lots of fun and pleasure to this technique.
For both projects I used the following products : 1. Dylusions Creative Journal 2. White Gesso : apply randomly with the spatula on the pages and let dry 3. Distress Ink Pad : blend the different colours for the backgrounds with Blending Sponges
