Here is what I have for you today:
This project is a little different with regards to texture. Of course, you see the texture in the card stock, and the texture of the metal, but this project is a little more about implied texture, or the two dimensional rendering of texture. Let me show you what I mean.
First, I placed the Dreamweaver Sailing Boat Stencil LG763 on a piece of heavy card stock. I used a pencil to lightly trace the image. Then, I used watercolor pencils and a little water to create the foggy sky background. I used Micron Markers to trace and embellish the outlines of the ship. I added a little more color with the watercolor pencils and created that implied texture.
The mermaid was one of my favorite Stampendous images, the mermaid. I sanded some white polyshrink and stamped the image with solvent ink. Next, I cut around the around the shape and punched a hole in the top of the plastic. I colored it with colored pencils and shrank it with my heat tool. The plastic reminded me a little of scrimshaw, which is why I used it with the boat image.
And that’s our theme!! Making Texture. We hope you’ll enjoy the wonderful inspiration that three talented teams will bring you this week! Be sure to visit all the blog links listed and leave your comments! Each comment will count as an entry towards one of the terrific prize packages.
Here are the designers sharing the projects today —
I live with my husband and my very spoiled collie in Michigan. I enjoy scrapbooking because I feel like it is both a way to preserve memories and create art. I love being on the Dreamweaver Design Team because I can explore techniques using these exquisite stencils and work with a group of wonderful teammates. I previously enjoyed working on the sparkling teams of both Art Glitter and Connie Crystals. I have also served on the Globecraft Memories Design Team, and completely addicted to their 3D Enamel Gels. I appeared in the Dec/Jan 2011 edition of The Stampers Sampler, The 2011 Catch Up Issue. and the April 2011 Stamp & Scrap Arts.
