Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
I love Eileen Godwin's work and was excited to see that she was doing a workshop
on Facebook. I'm sad to say that I haven't seen all the videos yet, but I really
enjoyed the first few and wanted to give some of her techniques a try.
I did an alcohol ink background on Yupo, squeezed some alcohol lift solution on top,
and brayered it over the whole piece. Then I laid a piece of cardstock on top and
brayeredover top to make sure I got good coverage. When I pulled the cardstock up,
I had this lovely pastel background.
I stamped the piece with this NBUS butterfly stamp, then used a Lavinia stencil
on the opposite side keeping the inking light.
The sentiment stamp is from the set, and was inked lightly for a little extra interest.
I love this technique because I have trouble with smudging when I stamp
on Yupo or glossy paper.
I'm hoping to take the time to watch more of her videos from this workshop
and hopefully try more of her techniques.
On a different note....
I love snowy days! Mainly because we don't get many of them. I was excited
to look out Saturday morning and see this.
