***Please note - the studio is closed for the long weekend and will re-open for our regular studio hours on Tuesday at 11am***
Yes, we did! For an hour or so at least :)
Anna came in a bit early for our sewing night yesterday. She spied some NEW STAMPS I got into the studio Wednesday and we were inspired!!! Take a look at this Hydrangea Stamp from Stampendous
I first saw these stamps in a Donna Downey Inspiration Wednesday video and had to get them in. Stunning.
Leanne was in on Wednesday and was telling me of a Watercolour project she did by stamping on Tissue Paper with Archival Ink, sealing it to a piece of Watercolour Paper with Matte Medium and then painting the image with watercolours. OH YEAH, Anna and I had to do this with these stamps. Out came the paints! *wink* This is what I created:
It's mounted on a 8x8 MDF Canvas from KaiserCraft. I adhered a piece of vintage musical score to the canvas with Claudine's Matte Medium and using a combination of her Tan and White Studio Paints, created a wash to blend it all in. I then inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink to finish it off. Oh yeah -- the watercolour was mounted on a couple of pieces of 6x6 chipboard that I cut and adhered to the canvas to give it a little "pop". See.....
Me like-y :)
Anna's was fantastic too! and had a completely different look. Love that!
Painting complete we cleaned off our tables and were joined by another 4 crazy girls for our sewing night. I created an Anna Butler skirt to wear to Inspired next month-- a couple of ruffled flowers too! How fun!!
On its way are the Rose and the Peony:
And soon to be released - Tulip, Tiger Lily and Dogwood!! Yum!!
Have a fantastic Easter Weekend everyone!
See you when I re-open the studio on TUESDAY at 11am!
