Happy APRIL fools day!
When I realised I had the calender page to do for April 1st,
I wracked my brains about what to do...
So I thought i'd be foolish and venure right outside my comfort zone,
with pastel colours.... fussy cutting...and faeries.
(Plus i'm still using previously un-inked stamps!)
I painted a piece of thick A4 sized cardboard with acrylic paint.
I stamped and coloured my faery-folk....
using similar colours to the painted background.
I drew out the letters/numbers onto paper I had stamped with a fine crackle stamp.
Then set about fussy cutting all of these tiny elements.... hours it took...no kidding.
I arranged every piece...interlocking some of the fearies with the numbers...
once happy with the layout I stuck it all down...then outline the letters/numbers.
Not my usual type of thing but a great day to make a (APRIL) fool of myself.
