I had an appointment this morning and we had to leave the house no later than eleven o'clock!
We had plans for the rest of the day and up to to now I haven't had chance to enter in the February challenge at Country View Challenges which is a Time challenge - 30 minutes or under!
I got myself all but ready and then sat down at my desk just after 10.10.
I had my journal opened at a page ready but nothing else, not to worry, everything is in labelled boxes and within reach!
First I made some ground for my plants to grow in - this was done with home made stamp and I first used a quick blending of Paper Artsy Guacamole and Limelight Fresco paint - it dries in super quick time and while it did this I picked out my stamps - a leaf from PA's Elenazinskiart and chose a quirky Lavinia pod set. It was going to take too long to make a sky in the same manner so I grabbed an acrylic block that I had been using yesterday and still had some dried Stormy Sky on it so I added some Blueprint Sketch and spritzed it and pressed it onto my page.
While that dried I added some more colour - the stamp was turned over and I used Peacock Feathers DI to over stamp the ground!
I stamped the leaves and pods and coloured them with Distress makers and then blended with a water brush - Whoops! the red went over on one of the pods - time running out I decided that rather than try to paint it out I would make a pink shadow down all of them! Just enough time to grab another go to stamp from Lin Browns ELB22 set - only needed one line which I coloured with Black distress marker
I still had 5 minutes to go so used a micron pen to fill in some little gaps on the text and make some little dots around the bottom of the pods to match the leaves!!
So…finished with just over 3 minutes to go…and I had time to take a photograph before dashing off to my appointment. Unfortunately my desk was left in a bit of a mess…as I found when I got home late this afternoon!
I used to struggle with taking photographs in my craft room after dark but I have found that the torch on my phone acts almost as a daylight lamp!
I would like to enter in…
