I love watching the Art Sherpa Paint.

I love watching the Art Sherpaa, Cinnamon Cooney. It's my little guilty pleasure as I often watch, but very rarely do I bother to get my paints out and have a go. I have learnt so much watching these videos and I am sure I would learn a whole heap more if I actually painted along. 

When I do join in I like to paint along in my journal and tend to go completely off track, Cinnamon will say do this to make this wonderful effect and I, for example, will do a quicker circle with a bottle top that just happens to be next to me on the table. I really must try to focus more next time. 
  

You can find her Youtube channel here
and this video I was watching here

I am sure I will to this one again someday as I really enjoyed it and mine looks nothing like the original, I still have so much to learn.

 Thank you for stopping by

Colorista colouring pad card

Hello Everyone

I made this card using the leftover piece from a different card I had made, which I posted recently. All I did was cut the piece in small squares which I glued into place on the card blank and doodled around with a black pen.

Colourista Colouring page


Hello Everyone

I have a new card to share with you all using a page from a Colorista Colouring pad, I really enjoy colouring on this pad, but hate the idea of leaving them in the pad doing nothing so often turn them into cards.

Colorista colouring page 2

Hello Everyone

For this card, I used the section of colouring page I had left over, It was coloured in using Spectrum Noir pens. I just mounted the section of the colouring page I had left to a piece of kraft card and doodled/drew in the rest of the image with a black fine point pen.

Floral Fantasy Challenge on The Artistic Stamper Blog

Hello Everyone

WOW May already, I feel as if April went by way too fast, a new month means a new challenge over on The Artistic Stampers blog. This month's theme is

Floral Fantasy

It took me a while to work this one out and decide what I wanted to make, In the end, I got stuck on the idea of florals being individual flowers but not wanting to make something with traditional flower images, Then I decided I was making myself freeze creatively by over thinking and I should just have fun with the them. So I turned the Lightbulb stamp into flowers.


I cut a piece of card to fit my card blank and covered it with a layer of purple paint. I laid the floral mask over the top and sponged through some blue paint. Once dry, using black and white paint I stamped different sized circles. All the paints used were Dylusions paints.


After stamping the large lightbulb twice and drawing in some bottoms, I painted them in with a layer of gesso to act as a barrier between the purple and the colour I painted over the top. I also stamped the word smile from the framed words set in three places on the background.


Sorry for the badly out of focus picture, But here I painted a layer of green paint over the light bulb flowers and using a mask I stamped inside the light bulbs with a calligraphy mat stamp and a black ink pad. 


I also decided to stamp inside the light bulbs with orange paint and one of Lesley's small flower stamps, and then I scribbled gentle around the light bulbs and the words, to highlight them and help them stand out from the background.




Thanks for stopping by, I look forward to seeing what everyone makes.
