This month's StampscapesII Challenge is "Barnscape." This scene features Kevin's large barn from his newest release and some lovely poppies from SweetnSassy. The scene was inspired by my swap partner, as she has created scenes with this style of having a large image in the foreground. I was excited to get Barb G as my swap partner - and a little nervous. Her designs and coloring are always fabulous! She's been published in RubberStampMadness several times. Barb is also the one who introduced me to Encaustic painting. I was thinking I have to take my time on my design to make sure Barb is proud of me.
I stamped the poppies first and masked them, using a low tack tape for larger open areas. I didn't bother to mask the smaller areas as they have a design in them. If I did mask the smaller areas, I would use a liquid frisket mask - another great tip that Barb taught me!
Next, I stamped the barn and masked it before stamping the trees & ground. For any areas where I did not mask well - meaning there's a little halo, I used a multiliner to add a little detail.
Then, it was time for coloring!! I used Copic Markers. To make the barn look warn, after I colored it, I used the 0 marker to pull out some color.
Last month the theme for our Stampscapes Yahoo group was Reflections.
I chose this cute mini Magnolia to feature. I bought several of the mini designs just to use with my Stampscapes images. I created the scene during our Stampscapes retreat so I don't have break out photos. I'll do my best to describe my process.
I stamped him on cardstock and masked him. Next I stamped the peer. I made it into a dock by drawing in dock posts. :o) To create his reflection in the water, I stamped the little fisherman on the smooth side of the plastic that came with my stamp positioner. Since it is clear, it was easy to line it up with his feet and press lightly. Next I masked the dock and stamped in the rest of the scene. I colored last, leaving highlights in the water and on the deck. I also was careful not to color his reflection too bright.
During our retreat we had the opporunty to get feedback from an Art Teacher, Grechen! She gave me some great advice to deepen my colors in areas, like where the water is deeper. The last three years, my roomies and I have been staying at Grechen's house and we didn't know she was an Art teacher. We were so excited to learn this hidden talent about her and ask for her advice.
When my little scene was all finished, I shipped it off to my stampin' sister Trish D in Australia. I told her, the little fisherman was thinking "I hope Trish likes this card." :o) She did!
