This week at "Less is More" the challenge is to use two colours opposite to each other on a colour wheel.
My first thought was of Christmas colours...red and green. You can see them on this little colour wheel.
I used a slightly darker shade of green and inked the whole of this Tim Holtz stamp with it, before removing the ink from the berries with a brush and adding the red with a marker. After stamping I added a little darker red to the berries with a Copic pen, to add dimension and make them a little more definitive. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Here I went with blue and gold... gorgeous sky and golden sand. It's an image from the Wax Fruit Company coloured with alcohol pens. The sea has a little Glamour Dust added for extra sparkle.
The 'happy' is from a Clearly Besotted die and the 'birthday' from a Mama Elephant stamp.
Here's another using the Tim Holtz holly stamp with a little tag added for a Memory Box sentiment. This time it's mounted on a SSS stitched square.
A couple of days ago we went to see Way Upstream by Alan Ayckbourn at the Chichester Festival theatre. I've seen some amazing productions there but this was something else. The stage was a river scene with real trees and a real 21 foot houseboat, which moved around the water in the most ingenious way and several people dived into the 'river' which was about 3 feet deep! Quite astonishing, and exceedingly clever as well as being a fine play! I've never seen a set quite like it in a theatre. I wanted to take a picture of it but wasn't sure if I was allowed!
If anyone lives within striking distance of Chichester I can thoroughly recommend it!
