Time Holtz Umbrella Man Die
I am sorry I have no step by step pics this week as my Camera was out of charge while I was crafting and it was a case of wait till it charged or go with the flow, I went with the flow. The inspiration behind this week’s journal page is my amazing husband. He has had a week of looking after me having to go in and out of hospital for various tests (nothing alarming) and now this weekend a day case visit to the hospital for his father has turned into a 3 day hospital visit with hubby providing support to his Dad and his Mom. But as he always says whatever life throws at us we face it together.
I started with a coat of gesso.
Next I applied little blobs of each of the paint colours and moved them around with a baby wipe.
When dry I went over with the different paints using the That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils.
I added bits of left over paint to some modelling paste and smeared it across the bottom of the page to create an “horizon”.
Next some stamping in black paint using my own carved stamps.
On white stamping card I stamped the girl with umbrella image from the “Sparkle in the Rain” set in Versamark, added black embossing powder, heat embossed and hand cut her out. Next I die cut the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man in black card. I added both images to the page using the Gloss Gel Medium and adding a heavy layer of the medium over the top.
Next came Chit chat Stickers for my phrase which I shaded using a black watercolour pencil, which I also used to create a black shadow to my “horizon”.
