Winged woman who wanted her son to return to the nest
I had a look at the Scrollswork blog earlier on this evening and there is a fantastic technique on there which involves getting messy with paint and which produces instant backgrounds...click here to see the post. I made a quick collage with one of the backgrounds using lots of Scrollswork stamps under a transparency (dont forget that they have a huge closing down sale on at the moment). The theme over at Wednesdsay Stampers this week is nest..can you spot the nest on her head?
Once my sons had gone to bed I just had a play with paint and in half an hour made over 40 backgrounds..great fun just put down acrylic paint, water and get swooshing with cheapo photo paper.
I love the way this one turned out..purple explosion
My conservatory/art room has been taken over by Halo Reach toys which remind me of a cross between Mad Max and orcs out of Lord of the Rings.....my son made this excellent base for them and told me in great detail about the battle to defeat the halo reach grunts...dont you just love listening to imaginative stories.
