You’re all probably wondering why there is another posting from me … well last week I fell off a fence, cut my shin and twisted my knee. As Andrew kindly pointed out to me, should not have been on the fence in the first place. Had the knee xrayed and thankfully no bones broken (it’s sooooo painful) but I have to elevate it and keep off as much as possible. Thankfully the crafting part doesn’t put any extra pressure or weight on it … hence more crafting.
Slapped wrist again, I have had this Clarity Stencil at least 3 years (could be 4)!!! Bought 5 different Clarity stencils at Ally Pally, not one has been out of the packet until today. Stop gasping girls because I am probably not the only one who impulse buys. One down four to go!!!
You will laugh at this one, before opening the pack I looked to see what the bird was called but unfortunately Clarity do not put the names of their stencils anywhere on their packs. Not a problem, just went with colours I liked. It was only when I was looking to add a link for the stencil that I found out what it was called …. MAGPIE. Now who doesn’t know what colour a magpie is???? Me presumably because this little Magpie is green, yellow and blue.
Thought the stamped quote from Studio 490 Wildflower Art was so appropriate.
Coloured (Mr Magpie) … could be anything once he’s coloured … with Faber Castell watercolour pencils and used Black Soot DI shading around the edges.
Entering the above for the Stampotique Designers Challenge 258 where they want to see a Favourite Quote.
Enjoying colouring in again, which I used to do a lot of, especially the shading side. Amber and I used to sit for hours on end just shading and colouring and she always thanks me as it helped her no end with her artwork. Usually another craft technique comes along and I gallivant off to have a go at it but maybe for the time being I should just concentrate on one thing at a time.
