Do small things with great love

Over at Try it on Tuesday our challenge for the next 2 weeks is Use a Stencil.

I had fun using three different stencils on this page for both the background and main flower images.

I started by covering the page with Colbalt Blue, Cadmium Yellow Dark Hue and Bright Aqua Green Liquitex acrylic paints and left it to dry. I didn’t like the yellow so I covered it with the Colbalt Blue and Aqua Green paints, if you look closely you’ll just see some of the yellow peeking through. Next I used a Fun ISO stencil from Paperbabes Stamps and a Carabelle Studio Mask to stencil and stamp the patterns over the top using the blue and green paints again. When dry I added the white flowers using white acrylic paint and a Jofy PaperArsty Flower Stencil and Mask set. To finish, I added the wording which was cut from a Kaisercraft 12×12 paper sheet.

For more inspiration please pop over to Try it on Tuesday to see the wonderful Use a Stencil creations from our Guest Designer and my Design Teamies too (grin!). I hope you are inspired to join our challenge; it would be lovely to see you there!

As T Stands for Tuesday, I’m sharing a yummy beer from Brewdog Brewery called Hazy Jane which is an IPA with a 5% ABV and is described as “This is a full-tilt fruit machine of an IPA packs all the flavour but less of the alcohol. Notes of pineapple, mango, stone-fruit, and a hint of tangerine to mix it up. Brewed with oats and wheat and left unfiltered for a smooth juicy hit” – Happy T Day everyone!

Hope that you’re all staying safe and well!

Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

  1. Your page reminds me of Hawaii or the tropics today. I love it. Those colors are my favorites. Nice texture too. And your beer sounds interesting. Nice company name. It looks like a good warm weather drink. I hope you are having a nice start to the new month, a happy T day and a great week ahead. Hugs-Erika

  2. So many beers, so little time! I’m amazed by how many little breweries there are out there, making new flavors for a very old product (invented in ancient Egypt).

  3. What a lovely piece. I love the colour. Turquoise is my favorite colour.
    The IPA sounds really nice. I’m not drinking a lot at the mo, as hubby can’t drink. But being in a city I would have the chance to try new ( to me) beers. But I’ll stick with coffee and water.
    Have a happy T-Day,
