Groovi Tuesday #3 Better Days

Morning!

I'm trying to feel upbeat today, but it's tricky when there's people and animals all around you that are having a tough time. So I changed the Groovi project I'd planned to blog for this one that I demo'd on tv.

Wishing Better Days to those who really need them!

 

Put a border of your choice in place, then plant a single tree.

Three tags next, all in a line.

Add some landscape and a sunset/sunrise.

Add the greeting, I've decided I'm more successful if I put it on a separate piece of parchment then use that to centre it on my actual project.

A little white work on the tree leaves and tops of the letters.

Start adding colour, I used two blues for the lake and two greens and a yellow for the tree.

Use various earthy tones for the hills. A nice deep colour around the tags.

I mounted up onto dark card using the Groovi corner punch.

Done.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a good day whatever you're up to.

  4. Morning Marie, oh how wonderful to see the step by step instructions, and also to see you on Hochanda. I remember we met at the NEC last year (I asked you about which ink pads to use when stamping white on parchment) and you were so helpful and kind, something I will remember always.

    You are so supportive of others and your brilliant creations are amazing, thank you for sharing with us.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
