A second calendar page ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well. I am playing catch up with some projects I had hoped to finish in June but I ran out of time time and I only finished them last night lol! So today I have another calendar page to share with you and it’s all about water: April showers. So here is another calendar page I have finally completed …
A5 is the size I chose, so there is lots of room for a calendar
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Art Inspiration & use water (liquid):
I used water to colour and blend my background and to colour the stamped image.
A beautiful painting that is cheerful yet you know it’s raining.
Some artists use grey or dark colours to give the feel of rain.
I love how this artist has used bright colours to achieve that.
Cute Card Thursday #382 water
It’s A5 size and I wanted to have a coloured image, rain and umbrellas on the card. I was hunting through my stamps to find images I could use when I remembered this NBUS Morehead stamp set which is super cute, also there is a rain drop stamp in the set too.
I won this stamp set a while ago, I think from an Allsorts blog hop, and as I’d not used it I hoped there was an umbrella in it, not. I have no umbrella stamps and I thought an oriental parasol stamp would not look quite right. So I was brave (well in my mind) and I used a watercolour pencil to draw umbrella shapes onto watercolour paper snippets. It took me a while to get the right colour, shape and shadow but once I got that bit right I decided to use an old sticker which is very metallic and lush and perfect for the umbrella stem/handle?! One more calendar card completed lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend ttfn Karen x
