I have these random ultra realistic die cuts that just look like a cry from the environment. I paint the background with watercolor, then cut a piece of paper for the foreground grass. This one is probably my favorite even as it seems too simple to warrant much attention.
I’ll be entering this into the Simon Says Stamp, “playing with paint” challenge.
The background is hand dyed from leftover fountain pen ink.
Christmas in July? (Okay, August :-))
I really enjoyed playing around with this! The background is acrylic (my own mix of blue and white) paint on a random piece of laid textured paper. The die cuts were free via Cricut.
I’m entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.
This was the 2nd piece I made. While looking through the Cricut image library for free images, these carolers caught my eye and I knew I wanted to make a cute scene with them.
The background is again acrylic paint and the same snowflake turned stencil. I like this technique and kept many of the negatives of the die-cuts I used for my Christmas gifts to use as future stencils.
I was disappointed by how much the paper curled while creating these pieces. I’ve considered buying artist’s stretched canvas for creating stuff like this, but I never felt worthy of even such a relatively minor expense (Michaels often has a very good deal on them). With as wonderful as these turned out, I feel that I’m ready to upgrade my materials a bit.
