I seem to have lost my Mojo recently... can't get to do anything although my mind is racing with ideas !!! I did a bit of sewing and then my machine broke down :-( At least I was able to draw up some new Digital Image requests and they will be rearing their heads shortly :-D
Other than card making for orders, I seem to be definitely 'out of my groove', but maybe I can have more success at the weekend.
I often find that making ATCs gets me up and running, so I did a couple this afternoon. Both of them are inspired by the sea, although one is humorous and one is a bit scary :-)
This one was done using an 'Occasions Grumpy' rubber stamp set from SMEARED INK and the background is using the Plate 32 - 'At The Beach' stamp set from De-STEMPELWINKEL.
I coloured the sea with 3 shades of blue ink stamp pads and used just one of the pale ink pads to do the sky. Then I painted the sea part with Glossy Accents.
The Grumpy was coloured with Promarkers and then cut out and mounted on foamies. The fish was given a coat of Stickles and I added some Glossy Accents to his eye. I made a sentiment tab in my graphics programme.
I made a sheet of that wavy background a while back by blobbing yellow and green paint onto some blue card and pressing over with cling film. Then I made waves on it by scratching and using Stickles. I added some teeny shells that I collected from my local beach :-)
I had fun today and am feeling a wee bit more artsy fartsy now :-D
