Well, it's time for a new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge and for the next two weeks we'd like you to create a project with Springtime colours, images or both. Our wonderful sponsor is Digis with Attitude and the winner will receive a generous $10 voucher to spend in the store so we'd love to see your entries!
Here is my DT sample:
So is this flower overkill or what?!! Having said that, I do like the effect but it took me ages to get it right for me. I have five plastic drawers full (and I don't mean half full!) of flowers and I had every one out and stacked up around me. Anyhoo, I achieved what I wanted, which was to make it look like Tilda is walking in a leafy, flowery dell - having picked some flowers on the way, as you can see! I've recently bought the Stone Path image that forms the background and was itching to use it. To create the Springtime fluffy, cloudy sky behind Tilda I used the technique shown by the uber talented Annika Ryan and if you click the link you'll be taken to the video tutorial on her blog. When you see it, you'll know that I definitely need to practice more! I also need to buy the B0000 and C00 Copic markers to make the effect better so those are on the (never ending) shopping list now.
To help with the colouring generally, I also used Promarkers and Prismas and I remembered to make a note of the colours - wooo hooo! (In the recipe below.)
Whatever you have planned for the Easter break, I hope you have a wonderful, happy time of celebration. I shall have to spend part of it on Clarity DT work, but that's OK because it's crafting, right?! If you're a fan of all things Clarity, Barbara's on TV on Sunday morning from 9 - 10 a.m. UK time or you can watch the show online on the Create and Craft TV site.
