Be Yourself....

Good afternoon and thanks for looking in today....how has your day been?

I was woken up early by Mr Eric....oh my little star!!!! So the washing was on the line, the dogs had been walked and all by 8am...

I then spent the morning working on samples for the next Clarity TV show...it does come round so quickly...

The afternoon has been spent sorting things out for workshops in Hazel Grove tomorrow.......as you know one of my favourite days...

So today I thought I would share a card with you that I made for the German show...

I wanted to show how well the masks work with the Wee Folk stamps...oh and the new alphabet too...

I started by stamping the words....fingers crossed that this actually means...Be Yourself....

Then some masking...I am so pleased that Clarity make the masks...

Then using a combination of masks, inks and sponges I created my landscape...

How cool is that...and so quick to take shape...

Next I added the Wee Folk.....I drew some bubbles By hand and added some shading with charcoal...

Sometimes it is nice to just let the art speak for itself...no glitter, or bows...Just good one layer work...

So that's my blog post for today...still got some ironing to do so better dash...

Hope you have a good evening....

Love and hugs...
