Tree Canvas

Good morning, peeps!

Did you miss me yesterday?  I'm sorry there was no post but I don't know what happened to the day, it just sort of ran away with me.  I'm sure we all have days like that.

Anyhoo, here is today's offering:

This is a canvas board on which I painted some random hilly shapes using white acrylic mixed with various shades of H2Os.  The basic tree trunk is one of wor Sheena's new stamps that are being launched on the Weekender event starting tomorrow at 9.00 a.m.  I filled the trunk shape with Modelling Paste to create the bark texture that isn't showing all that well in the piccy.  When that was dry, I painted the surface with H2Os.  The leaves, blossoms and sky were all produced with some of the special effects paints that are in the mixed media kit that's also being launched on the weekend shows.  The stamps that produced the flowers and leaves are also on the shows but the butterfly is cut from a Crafter's Companion die.

I do hope you'll all be watching over the weekend because I know there'll be some wonderful demos and some exciting products as well.  The show times again are:

Saturday 1 November at 9.00 a.m., 12.00, 6.00 and 8.00 p.m.
Sunday 2 November at 11.00 a.m, 2.00 and 7.00 p.m.

Thank you for looking today.
