Clarity TV show Art - April 2015

Good morning x
YeY!!!! spring has arrived - wow tis warming through my bones xoxo

So this week I'm going to be blogging a couple of times, there's my recent artwork from Sunday's Claritystamp TV....

.....and my 2nd guest spot art for the Stampotique Designers Challenge blog (see last weeks piece HERE :-)))

So I'll start with this beautiful Treehouse stamp - press HERE to peep at the stamp
I decided to go mixed-media 'au naturel' and I was over the moon with the results, its still full of my tiny details but somehow it has the 'less is more' feel x

PanPastels add a magical edge in my finishing touches, they add another layer of depth to draw the eyes in and are mega easy to use......

Loving using my Dina Wakley Media Paints - they are soooo bright and smooth, they spread like butter :-))))

I also used Dina's Acrylic paints on the next piece and the Treehouse stamp too.....

This next piece also uses the Treehouse stamp, but as you see (for those who know my style of art) this is a totally different style for me (I used most of my fav products and techniques - I just tweaked them all a little to suit the style i was after, cos I still wanted to see my unique style in there when the piece was finished, and I was happy cos it was and I thoroughly enjoyed the process, it is a great place to go from time to time - a place we haven't been before lol - lots of ingredients were used for this piece, Acrylic paint, ink, Panpastel, Gelato, doodled, sewn. foil, stamps, a mixed - media piece, full of many many layers.

Again I used  Dina Wakley paints on the above and below pieces along with Panpastels and the new Bespoke Personalised Stamp from Clarity - I created a sort of collage journal page with lots of 3d elements - and i used Tim Holtz's new Distress Spray Stain - Cracked Pistachio - tis yummy!

My final piece for the clarity tv show is another Journal style page, filled with vibrant colour and fun, the stamp and stencil used are Clarity 'Floral Figures' stamp set and the 'Circles' stencil from the 'Flare' stencil set.
I've used dry-wax-paper deli paper and waxed-paper deli paper from Art Fron The Heart, old Book pages, sticky back canvas, the fabulous Dina Wakley Paints again, Faber Castell's new Gelato's, Doodle markers, Copic Sketch pens, Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, Derwent Inktense pencils and the wonderful Panpastels again x

Still with me
Thats all for today......
