Bluebird singing on Ideal World

Hi folks, well Mr Blogger didn't post this for me this morning boooooo! I wanted to give you a heads up about the 'Sensational Stencilling' show on Ideal World at 5pm so I hope you managed to catch the show with the lovely Nikky Hall demoing all my favourite products and some gorgeous new masks too(you can find them at Your Creativity Store if you didn't catch them on Ideal World)

I had a wonderful time designing some of the samples for the show and I'll be sharing some of them over the next few days. I made this canvas by using PanPastels and two of the gorgeous new masks (Birds and leaves and bird cage). I also used Maimeri Light modelling paste mixed with yellow pans through the Birds and leaves to create the dotty areas. The duster brush is fabulous for applying the Pans through the stencils, its a really gorgeous fluffy brush :-)

Once I'd created the background I added lots of die cut leaves that I had a bit of a happy accident with, I'd started colouring them with Pans and I'd got sticky paws from sealing the Maimeri Matte Medium and found that the medium gives a lovely delicate texture effect so I set to with a little sponge and did all the leaves. I also stamped some text here and there and then used PanPastels to give some shadow around the leaves. Its hard to see on the pic but here's more of a closer view:

The flowers were made with Maimeri Light Modelling paste in a silicone mould, coloured with PanPastels and (if you have a go at this make sure you leave them a few days to dry. To finish off I gave them a coat of iridescent medium,

To finish off I've added some more die cuts, silver embossed bird cages and birds coloured with more PanPastels.
