PLUMP PEARS

It is just me (I don't think so) that gets easily distracted?
A couple of days ago I saw that the daily journal prompt over on
MILLIANDE ART COMMUNITY was PLUMP PEARS (not know about Milliande? click the link to find out).........so into work room I went and pulled out  pear stamps and set them on the surface to remind me till I had time to play with them.
Then today the challenge on WEDNESDAY STAMPER 
 is TAGS......mmmmmm......was mulling that over when I spotted that one of the pear stamps had a tag on it! So, what I was meant to be doing went out the window and this is what I made!

 Here is my tag!!

 I liked the different pic angles I tried out the other day so here are a couple more!!

I REALLY like the way this came out........it is a little different for me, there is a lot of empty space!! I struggle with empty space, feel the need to fill it! Normally I would put some words in the space but could not think of what to use so am leaving it for now........or even FOR EVER cos I don't want to spoil it!!

I used the brushless watercolour method..............Distress Ink pads onto stamp, spray with water and stamp, I like the random-ness of it. The two slightly more solid looking pears on the right hand page were stamped onto more absorbent paper, torn out and glued in place.

Great pages, you are really good at painting! I struggle, but I hope I'm learning every time I do so... Milliande is just a great place to get inspiration, don't you think? Love your pears and the little tag aswell, of course.

Oh, I am totally in love with your pears! I have always loved that stamp and you have turned it into a true work of art. Fantastic colors...gorgeous all-around.

Rosie said...

I like it, especially the watercolour effect, and I love the shape of pears. That empty space makes me want to fill it all up with journalling .... but it may not be having that effect on you!!

Sid said...

Super watercoloutr effects and those pic angles look great.....so does the uncrowded page !!
