Good Morning everyone!!! I hope you are all enjoying the delights of Spring. All the Daffodils & Blossoms are blooming here in Essex & there is colour everywhere :-) So what better challenge to have over at Daisy Doodles than Spring. We want to see loads of colour this week.
I have created something different this week for my project. I thought I would have a go at altering a wooden shape. I have made this for my Mum for Mother's Day.
I bought a house shaped wooden blank & over a week I added pale yellow paint to it. Every few layers I then sanded the paint back to keep it smooth. After quite a few layers I then printed out SunBeem onto some thin printer paper using a Best setting. I then turned the paper over & drew over the image from behind. This caused the ink to imprint onto the paint. I then drew over the image that was imprinted on the blank with pencil & started colouring the image in. I used Promarkers as my base layer then went over with the Brush end of my Copics.
Once I had done this I decided that the paint was a little too plain so I decided to add the red stripes. After masking the areas I used 2 layers of paint. Unfortunately the paint bled under the masking tape so I edged them with peel offs. I then added these cute bumblebees. xx Clare x
