AECP - Seasonal Scene Building....
Another class completed.... this time Seasonal Scene Building. This one caused me serious challenges.... I don't own a single one of the stamps used in the class... so I had put my thinking cap on. The class gave me lots of ideas to adapt. - Using stamps and inks to make a background, use oversize scenes, masking a scene and window scene to name a few. I chose to do a window scene.
I took the Winter Cardinal stamp and die to make my scene. I did some sponging to make the sky and sun. I die cut the branch and then used it in the negative space to help line up the stamp in my MISTI to stamp. I used the same technique to stamp the bird in green. Added some flower sequins to finish off my scene.
What did I learn from this class? Lots of good ideas about building a scene. Using a window or frame really helps focus your eye on the scene. I enjoy watching the scenes that Nicol created. I now have some new stamps on my wish list!
Dad got off this afternoon. After 8 weeks it was hard to say goodbye...I will miss having him around.
Thanks for stopping by.... got a few cards made yesterday afternoon - Tomorrow I will share my daughter's birthday card. Today was her birthday. We FB messenger video call her to say Happy Birthday and to watch Archer playing. He came to the phone to say Hi to Pop and Nanny but was too busy to stay too long.
Thanks for stopping by.
