May already….

Isn’t the year flying ?  We are in the fifth month already in another five month’s our thoughts will be turning to N.E.C and Christmas. I would like to if I may share with you all “Seagulls” it is a take on the Cornish artist Brian Pollard. he lives not far from us and I adore his cheerful prints. This is using the Seagulls Stamp from Hobby Art

You will need Pro-markers in brights and pastels….brights for the doors and boats and pastels for the buildings. A good mixture of blues for the sea starting with indigo for the sea furthest away where the lighthouse is  and ending in aqua nearest the bottom right corner. All I did was make wavy lines and graduated the blues from dark to light…I spent a very pleasant hour just colouring it was lovely. Add there is, if you look closely a dash of Wink of Stella here and there. …However hard I try I can never get it to photo so you can see it…. I added a few clouds and then matted the picture on Red White and Blue card and picked a sentiment from the BY THE SEA Stamp set …added a few wavy cloud’s to it and matted that too . I did however find my wavy embossing folder this and the dots where the first ones I ever bought ..Years old from provocraft for the Cuttlebug. Mine gave up the ghost a long time ago but the folders still come out to play, as you can see! I did run two bits of card through … I wanted to see what the whole thing would look like if I put gilding wax on the swirls …I thought they were OK …but I preferred the card white to me it looked more like white waves….well I hope you like my offering ….Till next time Crafty Hug’s
