Beautiful dancers

Good afternoon all, how is today treating you? Ok , I hope ,

I have got all my bags packed ready for tomorrow's workshops in Hazel Grove , we are having a masterclass on PanPastels....as requested by the ladies...and would you believe it we are not only fully booked for both classes but now have a reserve list....whooopp....who would have thought it...

I must just take a few minutes thank you all for your lovely messages , emails, presents and flowers....you are all so kind.... and I really appreciate them all ....

Adam is still struggling and is back at the doctors tomorrow , but we know it will be a while before he is 100% ...

Today I thought I would share a piece of parchment work with you...I created this for Barbara's Hochanda show on Sunday - hope you tuned in...

A Parchment, Stencil combination...

I just rested the stencil on top of the parchment and gently traced the outline with tool number one.

At some points where the stencil was delicate I had to hold it into place...oh and remember to breath...

I then added Jaynes wonderful frame remembering to stop when I came to the dancers. This is where a stamping background really helps.

Now I haven't got step by step photos sorry...as you know I am still a novice with Parchmnet and never know if the piece will turn out...but as I progress , I will start to take some...promise...

The words were added next and the background from that very useful plate from the starter pack.

I added some detail to the dancers, I do love using the piercing grids to add embossed detail

The moon got the dotty treatment too..

I added some colour from the back with Spectrum Noir pencils and my favourite charcoal pencils before attaching the work to a sheet of the wonderful backing papers. I am so pleased with the way this has worked. I can see me playing more and more...

The new stencils are fabulous....and no...you don't have to be a dancer to use them,,,,good job...lol..

Take care all, enjoy your evening....

Much love and hugs..
