TREES....

Just recovering from a luscious Sunday Lunch out in Yarm this afternoon.  Still very full and now very sleepy - but time still for a quick blog post, and I think I will concentrate on tree images this evening.  As you know I have been playing around with tree stamps a lot recently, and I will also add some other makes about trees from the team.

Mine are bright and full of colour....




The assorted trees are stamped on tissue paper which was then applied to painted canvas, and then stitched with my old Singer sewing machine (love doing these).  Trees from CI-209, and CI-429.

Helen Chilton has been playing with the same trees and with reflections.  She did a bit of a step by step for us which I will upload below.  I don't think you need the wording really as the images are descriptive enough in themselves.....











The reflections aren't strictly accurate, but certainly give great effect!!  Here are a couple more in different colourways.....





Loving the last one in particular - very moody!

I also used trees on the following colourful blocks....










I have had great fun experimenting with paint and stencils, trees, tissue, and foils!

What else can I find featuring trees? A Christmas card from Sylvie....


 And another by Lynne....


And another by Coco (with a little Christmas tree).....


Then a journal page by Coco.....



Another card by Flo....


Plus this very pretty card by Sylvie, and its upside down trees, also with an accompanying step by step.....






Some of the other stamps appearing in the above are from CI-257, CI-282 and CI-399

Phew that's a lot of images I uploaded.  Hope you enjoyed them!

Lots more to come,

Back soon,

This brings in the light and air so that your tree can flourish again, and not continue to be used as a trellis by unwanted ivy or vines. click to read more
