I made a small gift card using my new circle of friends stamp.
Here are some faces I painted for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in the Black Forest for Tweed Theatre Company on the Gold Coast in 2010. It’s great to have somewhere to record my artwork.
Tillie the Turtle
Here Snow White is asleep and……. whatever shall we do?
What a wonderful showcase of amazing talented actors and singers in this show.
I really enjoyed the challenge of painting their faces to suit their character roles. With each show I progressed better and faster. I’m a bit fussy but by the last show the kids looked great. I started out sketching each character on paper first so it was easier to remember what to do under the pressure of time. Lots of other Mum’s helped out to get the whole cast done on time. The secret ingredient was the thin brush with firm bristles and the black face paint made it easier to do fine detail and definitely moisturise their skin first. I had so much fun!
As a treat my good friend Vicki and I decided to attend a class at J.A.M. Creations in Machinery Drive at South Tweed Heads to make Vintage cards with the very talented Jackie McGee. We had so much fun and learnt about new products and ideas and the pleasure of making the cards was wonderful. I was very pleased with the results and just couldn’t bear to part with them, I adore the pins we used to hold the bows they are just so cute. Naturally we purchased some new goodies after class and later went out for coffee at beautiful Coolangatta Beach. A really girly day!
I'm also very proud of my advances in technology as today I have managed three photos on my blog at once!
I made this card on thick cardstock adhered the geometric paper then used a tissue paper dress design over the top and stamped some random images over the top and used diluted glue to adhere this sheet over the top .When this dried I sponged a bit of brilliance poppy red over to give some contrast. Then layered this onto red and black cardstock. I used my new fleur de lee punch for detail. I learnt this paper technique from Kasha Rolley at a group of girls called Papermates who meet up once a month at the Salvation Army Hall in Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.
I used two oval shapes to create my flower and ripped up a few leaves with scraps of green cardstock. I just ripped and then rolled petals of my flower with a bamboo skewer. My friend Vicki suggested it just needed a splash of glitter and voilà!
