Brambly Hedge



 Happy Sunday!

I have a Crafter's Companion card to share today...love this adorable image! It's from their new release Brambly Hedge collection-The High Hills.  I really love this entire collection, lots of 'cutesy' images which are fun to color!



The image has been colored using Spectrum Noir Colored pencils . Parts of it have been washed with watercolor  ..like the black wash of color under the window but the rest are colored pencils.  My favorite way of using both these medium together is to lay a wash first and then going over it with colored pencils. I do the same when I use Spectrum Noir markers too. It enhances the coloring and gives some brilliant depth.The background is distress ink-Walnut stain.



  a closer look....

Thanks for stopping by today and have a fun Sunday.

Warm and Cozy


 A new week is here and it brings us closer to the holidays! I have started working on my holiday cards and this one joins the pile!


I have used a stamp by Unity from their Stamp Of The Week collection- Warm and Cozy. I love the scale of this stamp, it's perfectly sized and a pleasure to color!


I sketched a fireplace and hung the stockings to give it a warm and cozy holiday feel..



Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful week ahead!

The blue window- video


Happy Friday friends!

Today, I have a more artsy project with a video for you. I have used a stamp, of course, but given the overall work a more painterly feel to it.


   
                                             matted in 8x10 

Here is the picture before it was matted...You can see I drew a faint outline of the mat just so that I could work within that and not loose any of the work once it was matted.



Here is the video...






The window and sentiment stamps are from Clearly Besotted-window dressing.


.... and here it is framed... I have used a museum mat for the final framing. I love how this puts the painting in complete focus.



                               Matted and framed- museum mat 5x7-framed 11x14

I hope you enjoyed the video !
Do leave me a comment if you have any questions and thank you so much for stopping by today!
