Hi there again :)
I have been digging in my ex store kits and got another freebie kit for you.
I've been really busy with art, lettering and on the laptop. I will have to do a full back up as well later . Better safe than sorry and with Mercury retrograde end of the month it's important to do that.
I've been experimenting with chalks as an alternative method to color . It works especially well on pictures you want to give an old grungy or antique look. One of the challenges was to draw a map and the Words " Explore the World". It was a toss up between watercolor or color pencils, but then I remembered the chalks I had in my craft box for ages and decided to just give them a try. I had used them for card making with stamps years ago and thought they should work for what I had in mind as well. And it turned out great !
I had a nice sunset as background in mind for this. So I used watercolors to be able to blend the colors of the sky.
Another one that turned out fantastic :)
And practice makes perfect :)
I have always liked quotes and to be able to letter them in calligraphy or typography style is fun :)
Not mention being able to play with and experiment with all the different fonts.
I give you the backgrounds today.
I have some jam to make after Blackberry picking , I want to go and pick some Elderberries and of cause the housework doesn't do itself either. So until next post again ...
