Hippo Birdie!

Hi there!

January is almost over and if you asked me I think Ive missed most of it! Today I would like to show you a card I've made. I must say I smile every time I see this stamp set, Lawn Fawn Year Four stamp and die sets.





I have created the background by sponging acrylic paint through a stencil, modern pop dots. I have then replaced the stencil and drawn around the circles with a fine marker pen. It's a really simple design with really nice bright colours.
I have then added layers of colour and added my stamped images.






Dies used: lawn Fawn year four and stitched scallop borders. MFT stitched rectangle stack.
Stamp; Lawn Fawn year Four.
Stencil: Memory box Modern pop dots

A new year, a new art journal.

Happy New Year everyone.
I am sharing with you today a drawing I have done for a new art journal cover, I still have many half completed journals but I thought that it would be nice to celebrate a new years beginning with a new journal too.



The face was drawn in pencils with layers of acrylic paint and gesso. I have then stencilled gesso to create the background texture using a memory box stencil texure honey comb . It is then coloured using distress stains and acrylic paint pens.


For the wording and numbers I have used the MFT die Magical memories.
distress stain colours used: broken china, peacock feathers, black soot and spiced marmalade.
