MFT summer school is 'white space' - I'll be getting detention as I haven't done day 4 yet. LOL thankfully the days of detention are long gone ;)
I used this old vase of flowers - the name of the maker escapes me at the minute. I coloured it in and then added some clear embossing to the lines when I'd finished, not sure I could be bothered doing this again, I don't really think it was worth the hasle!

Day 3's homework is symmetry.
I spent absolute ages in my stash trying to find an image that was symmetrical and ended up using this old favourite from High Hopes. Though my stenciled background and sentiment aren't 100% symmetrical but hopefully I'll get away with it ;)
I think my stencil was from Elizabeth Craft (wouldn't like to swear to it!) - I saw it used somewhere and had to have it, and it's sat in my pile ever since!

Day 2 of the MFT Summer School is rainbows. So out came my trusty bears and I coloured their scarves and bucket in the rainbow colours.
- I've also only just slid under the wire for DottyJo's Christmas Kickstart challenge #34 for a starry sky. I inked up mine and then added some splatters thinking it would look like the cosmos, but it looked more like a snowy sky, so out came my silver stars.

Hopefully August weather will be better than July's - the best that could be said about it was 'dull and damp'. Maybe we used up all our sunny days at the start of lockdown!
I'm pleased to see the MFT Summer School is back - it's always great to learn new tips and rediscover some old ones! Day 1 is visual triangle, so I used my silver stars for this.
For my background I masked off a square, used some pale pink ink in a starburst stencil and then layered up another little stars one on top of it with some darker pink ink. Hippos coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss/glitter added to their tutus.

I've lots of jobs planned but we'll see how that goes! I can finally tick haircut off my list, got it done on Thursday so I'm a bit more ready to face civilisation again ;)
I've a really simple card and a OTT card this evening! This one uses an old favourite monster from Whipper Snapper - coloured with polychromos and gloss/glitter added to his .... ummmm ... scales? I've no idea what to call those bumpy bits!!

This was one of those faffing about cards. It started just with some stencilling and the shark and sentiment. Thought it looked boring. Added some stamped hearts. Nope. Added some swirls. Nope. Added the rest of the sea critters. Hmm. Added the swirl in the top corner and some bling. Made myself stop. Don't think there's room on this card for anything else anyway hahaha.
