I did consider replacing all the triangles with flowers or circles (now there is a shape I can appreciate) but decided moving out of my comfort zone would probably be beneficial... as would moving off the sofa occasionally as I will never lose weight sat on my bum :)
Well in for a penny in for a pound so I water colour painted with mists too - no matter how many times I have tried using them through stencils I either forget to mask around the edge or smear it (or both if I am on really fine form). This I actually managed to do without too much stress **whispers again** in fact I quite enjoyed it! This is what I did.
Now the paper does buckle - which stresses me slightly. And why does uneven paper look messy for me when it looks arty for other people - what am I missing? Some of the triangles are raised up on foam dots, you can't really tell this from the photo - and I wish I had made the green a bit lower so it came below the photo - although the torn paper in the sketch sits in the same position. I also had to shrink the size of the triangles as my pics were much smaller than the sketch
The pics are from a day out at Rufford Abbey. There is a ford that seems to attract 'youngsters who want to get soaked by cars splashing as they drive through'. I don't mind as long as they don't whinge about being cold and wet afterwards. The eldest by 1 minute son decided he would rather stay dry (which seems a very sensible decision to me). However it was plenty warm enough that the other two dried out on the walk back to the car.
Thanks for visiting - have a good day,
