I am back from a week long Labor Day camping vacation. We had some great family time with lots of marshmallows and laughs and some stories by the fire. But now I am back and hopefully have gotten some mojo back. With that said I am playing along with Inkspirational, AAA Cards, The Card Concept, and Inspired By All The Little Things. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
|This is actually a stamp from Peddler's Pack that I stamped and then painted per the challenge |
from Inspired by all the Little Things. You will see below how a grid helped me to keep the painting loose and dream-like.
|I wanted to follow the style of painting provided by the inspiration photo.|
But I have never tried impressionist painting. So with a little internet research and YouTube
I thought I would drum up the courage to try it.
|The sentiment was done using a mixture of upper and lower case letters.|
I thought it would be more fun plus it gets me off the hook if it isn't completely straight.
Inkspirational: Challenge #116- Primary Colours
Inspired by All The Little Things: Challenge #22- Sunflowers
The Card Concept: #57- The Rainbow Connection

Wow was this fun!! But starting out I thought I could never complete a project in this free form, impression'ish style. Most of the tutorials online I saw the same thing. In the beginning of the process everything looked like a big hot mess. As they progressed however, it started to look..... well..... fantastic.
With doubts and fears I placed my brush on the paper and started painting; you don't know until you try, right? Well I think this turned out beautifully! Love the mixture of the colors. This was due to the grid painting I did for the first layer and then allowing it to poke through the overlays of paint. It's not Van Gogh, Monet, or Renoir but I am proud to call it mine.
Thank you so much for stopping by my little byte of the internet. I feel refreshed from vacation and happy to be back in Blogland. If you are so inclined, please feel free to leave a comment. Until next time take care and happy crafting.
All the best,
