how to create a picture for your home
with the new sketchy stamps from Sheena
this is a 8" x10"
as you will see i have cut a piece of water colour card larger than the size i need then with bog standard masking tape i made a frame to the required size that fits the mount in the frame
make sure you stick it firmly down on the inside edges so that the water colours don't bleed under but really this wont matter as it will be covered by a mount
right here goes
starting nearly at the top of the paper
as you can see i have used the mountains for my distance i stamped it twice don't worry about the join you will be painting over it
i used versa fine smokey grey ink for my water coloured images it's softer than black and takes the water colours paints very well if you heat set it...
now i stamped the tree set on the left
yet again building up the scene
your going to think hello!!!! they don't work but hold your horses it will all come together
then with the separate branch image i added more to the top of the tree
now get your pencil yep a simple pencil!!!!and join it all together
see the image below
see it does work!!
just extend the tree at the base and at the top of the tree
then again the land with the group of trees and add some extra clumps of grass
your now ready to start painting
i hope you will try this it would make a fantastic gift for anyone once framed
have a great day
